Blogger’s Investigation Leads To Arrest Of Corrupt City Employee

Good old-fashioned legwork by Stephanie Kienzle of VotersOpinion.com leads to the arrest of a corrupt City of North Miami Beach employee:

On May 3, 2023 we reported that an arrest might be in the works in North Miami Beach.
What we didn’t reveal is that an investigation ensued after we sent an email to Interim City Manager Mark Antonio advising him of our discovery that 124 of the Publix gift cards used for ex-Criminal Commissioner Paule Villard’s taxpayer-funded campaign stunt, were unaccounted for. The gift cards were purchased with Federal funds the City received under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA), and the missing cards were worth a total of $18,500.00.

WTVJ NBC 6 Investigative Reporter Phil Prazan wanted to ask North Miami Beach City Attorney Hans Ottinot about the ongoing legal drama surrounding city commission meeting. Ottinot, recently hired by Marlon Bolton & Co as the new Tamarac City Attorney, did not want to speak with Prazan.

Instead of acting like a professional, Ottinot became unhinged. First, Ottinot put his hand on Prazan’s arm to block the microphone. Ottinot scurried down the staircase of the public building with Prazan and cameraman in tow. When he exited the staircase, Ottinot blocked the door with his body to keep Prazan from leaving the building.

When he spotted Prazan outside the building, Ottinot ran away into the North Miami Beach night.


Even worse, Ottinot told Prazan he would talk “off the record.” When asked why he would not speak on the record, Ottinot said he does not discuss pending litigation on the record.

Are Hans Ottinot’s clients aware he will speak about pending litigation off the record?

Tamarac residents and North Miami Beach residents deserve better, right?
