Just three weeks ago, AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) CEO Michael Weinstein joined Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and actor Danny Glover to discuss housing issues in America. In between discussions of decidedly far-left solutions, Weinstein mentioned his controversial sixteen story project in Fort Lauderdale. Weinstein told the audience that one of his solutions to the affordable housing crisis is to “get the dirt money out of the politics at the local level.”

The Sanders Institute audience cheered after Weinstein said, “A city councilperson should not be able to take a contribution from a developer today and vote on their project tomorrow.”

As REDBROWARD reported last week, Jason King, a longtime AHF lobbyist, was the campaign manager for Dean Trantalis’ mayoral campaign in 2018. Trantalis even met with Weinstein and AHF land use attorney Stephanie Toothaker a month before Trantalis was elected.

More to come…
