When I created this blog I thought I would want to write more Key West stuff , but I can’t seem to keep up.
Funny things that have been happening lately: people getting in all kinds of trouble for shady stuff. I’m sure there is stuff like this happening everywhere but it gets magnified down here because it is a small town, plus there is very distinct line between the financially well off locals and everyone else.
First we have the school superintendent’s wife, Monique Acevedo allegedly buying whatever she wants on the school credit card and not paying it back. The superintendent hired her and she went from a 9 dollar an hour job to one that pays over 100k a year. That not being enough to satisfy her greed, she went on to go nuts with the credit cards and now there are allegations that she held fundraisers for the school and then just kept the money.
It would seem like there would be some checks and balances for this sort of thing, but apparently not. If you are a local and well connected it appears that laws don’t apply to you. If you were drunk and shoplifted a pack of gum you would go to the county jail down here, but stealing possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars has not warranted any charges as of yet.
