Caught In A Lie: Scandal Surrounding Carlos Curbelo’s Lobbying Clients Intensifies

The scandal surrounding Carlos Curbelo’s repeated refusal to disclose his lobbying clients is intensifying – with a new report in the Miami Herald revealing that campaign finance reports contradict Curbelo’s claim that his wife owns his lobbying firm.

The federal reports list Curbelo as the “Owner,” “Principal” and “President” of his lobbying firm. By claiming the company belongs to his wife, Curbelo has attempted to avoid disclosing his clients – and any potential conflict of interest on the School Board. Previously, the Miami New Times reported that Curbelo “has a history of approving contracts for campaign donors” on the School Board.

“Carlos Curbelo’s excuse for refusing to disclose his lobbying clients has been exposed for exactly what it is: a deceptive attempt to avoid revealing potential conflicts of interests with his work on the School Board,” said Joshua Karp of the Florida Democratic Party. “It’s just another example of how Curbelo is putting his own political ambitions over South Floridians – which is exactly why he can’t be trusted in Congress.”

Here’s a quick recap of Curbelo’s developing scandal so far:
