Did anyone honestly think that Lauren Book would go through her campaign without engaging in a little nepotism. Now that Bimbo Book is a state senator, she can just raid the coffers from the inside. No doubt she won't recuse herself from the appropriations committee.
Interestingly, even though Lauren Book claims to have resigned from her puppet post at Lauren's Kids, yet she's STILL listed as the CEO on her website
As reported in the Miami Herald:
"For example, Lauren’s Kids, a non-profit founded by Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, to promote awareness of and to prevent sexual abuse against children, is eligible for another $1 million from taxpayers. Nunez is the sponsor of the project (HB 3261) and its lobbyist, Ron Book, is the senator’s father.
The nine-page project application says that most of the $1 million would be spent on printing of materials, curriculum fulfillment, storage, travel and videography. Other expenses include $75,000 for consultants, $55,000 for an executive director (listed on laurenskids.org as Ivette Diaz) and $35,000 for a communications director (listed as Claire Van Sustersen, aka Horseteeth). The application says Lauren’s Kids, which is overseen by the Department of Education, will seek an additional $3 million to $10 million in public money in the next five years."
