SF Times reports Deerfield Commissioner Sylvia Poitier has been charged with 5 Misdemeanors.
“According to sources, prosecutors with the Broward State Attorney’s Office are charging Poitier with five misdemeanor counts related to a loan her brother, Lionel Ferguson, gave to the Westside Deerfield Businessmen Association (WDBA) and forms she completed related to the loan.
WDBA is a non-profit organization that provides low-income housing in the city. Several of Poitier’s relatives serve on the WDBA board, which the city designated as its Community Housing and Development Organization.”
She was charged with the only thing that she got caught with. So far.
Like former Commissioner Eggelition, who is in jail, it only goes to show you that voters will return people to office even if they violate the public trust. Sad commentary on us.
dum…dum…dum…another one bites the dust!
