AB fraud machine caught on video

The video doesn't tell the whole story but begins to peel back the onion on the absentee ballot fraud that is going on in Hialeah, perpetrated by the campaign for su alcaldito Carlos Hernandez and his campaign manager, AB Fraud Queen Sasha Tirador.

Taken by Political Cortadito cameraman Raul "El Toro" Torres and posted on the El Nuevo Herald website Thursday night, the video of known boletera (ballot harvester) Emelina Llanes shows how scared she is to be questioned earlier that afternoon about what she is doing at a public housing building entering apartment after apartment and carrying bags of what we can only assume are absentee ballots. But what is not shown in the video also speaks volumes. Shortly after she was caught red-handed, and called the police out of some over-exaggerated show to try to cover up what she was doing (you judge for yourself from the video), Hernandez's security chief Glen "The Goon" Rice showed up and began to question El Nuevo Herald reporter Enrique Flor about what he was doing there. Flor, whose journalism has taken a harsher edge on the current administration as of late (ahem), had gotten a tip about Llanes being there taking ballots and had rushed from the JFK library where early voting had begun Thursday. Rice even suggested Flor was working for Ladra, because they cannot believe that other journalists are beginning to catch on to their crookery. But, while Flor left that part of the story out, it's important because everyone knows Rice was not there out of his own concern or will. He was sent there by Hernandez, to make sure Llanes didn't say the wrong thing -- and maybe secure whatever ballots she had collected. The police report is not public yet y dicen las malas lenguas that police spokesman Carl Zogby is sitting on a bunch of information reports that won't come out until after the election. What a coincidence.

Flor also forgot to mention that she was driving around in a Nissan X-Terra that belongs to su alcaldito's wife, Nancy Hernandez. The cops should have ran the tag on the X-Terra because it belongs on a 2000 Chryler Voyager that Llanes owns. The Chrysler is sporting a tag that is blocked -- likely because it belongs to a law enforcement officer (Hernandez is a former cop) and was flipped with the tag on the X-Terra. Why? Perhaps so they can pick up ballots in the Chrysler and when the tag is run, nobody can know who it is. Perhaps for another reason. But all Ladra knows is that it's fishy and should be investigated. Kathy Fernandez-Rundle, are you reading this? I'll send it to you.

Llanes works for Hernandez. Or, better said, Tirador. She worked for the county mayoral campaign of former Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina and the campaign finance report reflects a $300 payment for "housecleaning services" at the campaign office. Yeah, riiiiight.

Llanes once misdialed and called the wrong person, not the person she thought she called, and -- on speaker phone -- several people heard her saying that she needed the AB list and how she was going to go and collect absentee ballots. She said that since the mayor had already remodeled her house three times (Ladra is going to need to get the building and zoning history for that address), that this time around, she needed a new car. She had been driven around by Jonathan Martinez, Robaina's aide, during that election cycle. Fernandez-Rundle knows this. Why? Because Ladra and the firefighters -- who have been cooperating and working with the state attorney's office, the FDLE and the Miami-Dade Police public corruption unit (Det. Miriam Gordils can confirm that) -- have given them this information. And keep giving them information. They know also that a dentist named Victor Verejano also helped collect absentee ballots for Robaina. They know also that Daisy Cabrera, another known boletera, offered to collect absentee ballots for council candidates Frank Lago and Cindy Miel, who declined her services but have spoken to investigators. Political Cortadito interviewed them before the Nov. 1 primary (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUCRfUn4spU). Cabrera, photographed here (in the green t-shirt) on the second trip to JFK early voting site on Thursday, would not speak to me and ran to su alcaldito to report that I had photographed her.

In the video by Flor for El Nuevo (http://www.elnuevoherald.com/2011/11/11/1063106/nuevas-acusaciones-en-campana.html, former Police Chief Rolando Bolaños tells the reporter that he and some friends had been watching and following Llanes for a couple of days after getting reports from people inside the housing buildings and the assisted living facilities throughout the city that she was to pick up ballots for the Hernandez camp. Ladra rode with one of the teams and later with El Toro Torres to document their comings and goings. Why? Because the authorities won't do it so we have to document what we know is absentee ballot fraud on a major scale. Su alcaldito decried it and said it was improper. But he's just scared that we might be breaking his machine apart. In the video, he denounces Bolaños, who he says has been driving former Mayor Raul Martinez around (that's another lie) and Hialeah Police Det. Ricky Garcia, an organized fraud investigator with 28 years experience, who took three days off in order to help with the independent surveillance operation that has been coordinated by civilians after a lack of interest by the authorities showed us we have to do everything ourselves. I told the state attorney's office I was going to do this. Ricky does not have a radio or a badge or anything on him. He does not engage. He simply drives. Su alcaldito said in the El Nuevo video that Garcia is a union official but the detective is not even a PBA member (another lie to try to discredit people who are doing good work to uncover the Hernandez fraud machine).

Su alcaldito said on the A Mano Limpia show on Wednesday's debate that he had video of firefighters intimidating seniors at night in a public housing building. He claims that they are stealing absentee ballots. But he is lying again (imagine that) and the video given by police to Enrique Flor simply shows the firefighters and general employees union President Barbara Hernandez, accompanied by Martinez's former secretary and campaign worker Mabel Mizrahi, entering a public housing building where they were invited by a resident. Nothing more. See it for yourself. This alcaldito has to lie at least 10 times a day to feed his addiction to falsehoods.

He has claimed that Martinez is committing AB fraud when all Martinez is doing is trying to stop the theft of ballots from his supporters, which is what happened during the primary. That's why 7,000 of the 21,000 ABs requested were never returned. And there are Martinez supporters who say that someone from the campaign came by to pick up their ballots when nobody from the campaign was sent to do that during the first round. Of course they are doing it now. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Su alcaldito won the primary with a disproportionate number of absentee ballots. His slate also got disproportionate numbers of ABs. Coincidence? Does anyone believe that? The problem here is that su alcaldito's game is up. We know about his machine and we are trying to stop it.

Other people we know collect absentee ballots that Ladra asks all her readers to be on the lookout for include "Papito," otherwise known as Juan Afre, who drives a red Jeep Cherokee and was with Tirador at MegaTV the night that Jose Gonzalez, brother of the Hialeah council's vice president Luis Gonzalez, assaulted El Toro Torres, the cameraman, outside in the parking lot (more on that later). Afre can be spotted at JFK wearing a Carlos Hernandez t-shirt (photographed herewith Council President Isis "Gavelgirl" Garcia-Martinez) during the first round of early voting). And also, maybe, Alejandro Llanes (maybe related to Emelina, Ladra is not sure), who is photographed here shortly before he called the police on Ladra -- after she took a photo of an empty Hernandez campaign office last week -- and had a homicide detective issue a trespass warning over the telephone 18 hours later. The Hernandez campaign has been using the police force for months to intimidate and try to silence Ladra as well as the opposition and critics of his administration.

These are only some of the people getting absentee ballots for su alcaldito. There are more. Next post will be about a group of severly mentally-challenged seniors who were bussed to the JFK on Friday and who were assisted to vote even though none of them or most of them had no identification.

  1. Desperate. Sore losers.

    Why is that when they searched Emelinas vehicle and bag they found NO ABS?? 3 days of following and nothing concrete? No pictures of ABs at hand? No pictures of her dropping ABS in the mail? nothing?

    How do you explain the fact that Carlos beat Raul by every measure: Election Day and Early Voting. Fraud too maybe? right..

  2. Its obvious that if she was in a bldg she left them in an apt... this lady seems to be an expert at this.. I just saw an article on the herald that this isnt the first time she does this. Listen I can honestly give a rats ass who wins because I don't even have a voters card which I now heard you don't even need one to Vote. I think they have to do away with these absentee ballot crap. Too much room for fraud.. I just want this election to end already. But I will share a little atory with you. My parents were visited by both sides and will tell you this The furst to bisit wre Hernandez people and all they kept asking fir was tge ballots so they can help fill out and take. Locally my mother doesn't trust her own shadow and told them they were capable of doing themselves to leave. Well they did but 2 different ladies came the next day to do the same and my mother just let them have it. She then go a visit from 2 firefighters who she said just wanted to see ig tgey were aware of the issues and what the 2 sides stood for. My mom said they were polite and never asked for a single thing. She said as they were done speaking they told her to please make sure they themselves fill in their ballots and take it to the post office and not trusy anyone. Well that to me shows what the 2 Candidates stand for. I now can say that Hernandez is ccomitting fraud. I wonder how many other homes those women went to and actually got in and not only filling in their ballots but taking them and well. This is just disgusting. & now i also find out he was a police officer. No wonder they are looking the other way and not reporting this stuff....

  3. Hernandez doesn't need to commit fraud.

    He can win fair and square at the voting booth like he did Nov 1st. Why would he risk it?

    Funny how Martinez didn't mention to his people that he lost by all counts. He did however mention the AB discrepancy and made it seem like he lost the election b/c of absentees. I can imagine to give them hope..false hope at that.

    So far no one has anything concrete, despite the concerted effort to find something by both the Martinez camp and the media.

    All they want to do is raise false rumors before election day in hopes that it will resonate with voters.

    The tides have changed. Just take a stroll by the library. Raul is doomed. He should just bow out gracefully.

  10. Now more then ever the city of Hialeah needs the type of experienced administrative leadership that Raul Martinez will bring to the office of mayor. Say, whatever you want to say about Raul but no person can deny in Hialeah that Raul was a dedicated and hard working mayor and through his ability to manage Hialeah became a city of great progress.
