(Article Summarized Below)
Consider: Last fall, voters in Sunny Isles Beach had three choices for city commission. One of them, Isaac Feldman, was later arrested for his role running an amazing South Beach scam involving Eastern European “B-girls.” Now, his opponent and the eventual winner — businessman Isaac Aelion — has been caught red-handed spending thousands on illegal campaign ads and sentenced to a year of probation.
Hindsight is 20/20, Sunny Isles voters, but maybe you should have gone for Jeniffer Viscarra, the candidate who eventually lost to Aelion in a runoff?
Aelion was found guilty yesterday of a first-degree misdemeanor stemming from a flyer he surreptitiously sent to 8,500 voters around town before the December election.
His trouble with the law began last November, when the Miami-Dade ethics commission started looking into a flyer attacking Viscarra and Michael Schnitzer, who was running against the town’s mayor, Norman Eddlecup.
Now he’ll have to serve one year of probation, repay $4,000, and serve 35 hours of community service.
