Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez Recalled

Miami-Dade County residents have voted to remove Mayor Carlos Alvarez and Commissioner Natacha Seijas from office. Results, including early and absentee voting, show 88 percent of voters want to recall Alvarez and just under the same percentage want to remove Seijas.

The push to remove Alvarez from office was led by and political action committee Miami Voice and billionaire car dealer Norman Braman, who said the mayor's fiscal decision endangered the community. The two drives began after Alvarez pushed through a budget that hiked the county’s tax rate and gave raises to county employees. Seijas voted for the budget.

Alvarez and Seijas tried to kill the recall in court.

Sarah Palin: American Idiot

Sarah Palin. Love her or hate her this woman has made a splash in the media. There are whispers of this woman possibly running for President in 2012. This intrigues me and I have decided to read up on Sarah to see where she stands.

Sarah Palin was born in Sandpoint, Idaho and her family relocated to Alaska when she was an infant. In 1984 Palin was named Miss Wasilla and placed third in the Miss Alaska pageant. Sarah college hopped and finally received her bachelor's degree in communications with an emphasis in journalism in 1987 from University of Idaho.
