A Miami Herald reporter was asking questions of a candidate when she was surprised to learn that the candidate called police on her. Daphne Campbell is a state lawmaker in Florida who has a really shady history. Miami Herald reporter Sarah Blaskey was asking questions that Campbell obviously didn’t want to answer…so she dialed 911 and said:
“Can you please send police for me, please, right now. My life is threatened”
Thank goodness this woman lost the election on Tuesday night! The local police released the audio of Campbell’s call that’s pretty priceless:
Sarah Blaskey had a sense of humor about the entire ordeal. She tweeted out:
The Miami Herald reports:
First elected to the state House in 2010, Campbell has been the focus of a number of Herald articles about Medicaid fraud investigations involving her family business and alleged ethical missteps. She has accused the newspaper of racism and bias in favor of her opponent, Jason Pizzo. Her campaign also complained this summer about Blaskey appearing at her home while investigating whether the senator lived outside her district.
ONE ETHICAL MISSTEP REPORTED IN THE MIAMI HERALD AND POSTED ON HER YOUTUBE CHANNEL:
At the end of the video, the legislator pulls out a purse with cash in it…
Campbell has been dogged by investigations and ethics scandals during hereight years in the Florida Legislature.She filed legislation to ban red light cameras after the family minivan racked up several citations, and once filed a bill to block public disclosure of troubled assisted living facilities — such as the ones her family company ran. She has been hit with IRS liens and investigated for Medicaid fraud.
IS CAMPBELL CONNECTED TO THE TALLAHASSEE MAYOR RUNNING AGAINST DESANTIS? WE’LL BE LOOKING INTO THIS!
