The lawsuit brought by Miami City Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones argues that Mayor Tomas Regaldo and Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle plotted to end her political career and ruin her reputation.
Just when it looked like it would be a good two years before the next major election campaign , Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist are at it already.
Though he rarely mentions his name, Scott was pretty clearly campaigning against his predecessor this weekend on the CBS4 show, "Facing South Florida With Jim DeFede."

City of Miami Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones is suing Mayor Tomas Regalado and state attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle for what she says is a plot to destroy her political career by accusing Spence-Jones of political corruption.

These criminal cases surrounding Spence-Jones turned out to be unsuccessful.
