Trump flotilla leader to be charged with felony, his lawyer says

Source: The Palm Beach Post

Carlos Gavidia, who earned national attention for his "Trumptilla" boat parades, is expected to be charged with sending a threatening text, a felony, to a resident of his former Jupiter country club community after they clashed over politics, his attorney told The Palm Beach Post on Monday.

Gavidia will surrender at the Palm Beach County Jail on Tuesday morning, said attorney Stuart Kaplan.

The criminal charge would come just days after Gavidia attended President Trump’s Republican National Convention speech on the White House lawn Thursday night.

Gavidia organized the boat parades with his vessel as the centerpiece. He renamed his 42-foot Yamaha Invincible boat “Trump” and wrapped it with a banner containing the president's name adorned with an eagle and stars.

3. I remember when people did that with Obama.

No I don't.

I doubt anyone ever festooned a boat with Barack Obama's name and went around enmasse blowing their horns, and republicans accused us of worshiping him. "Our Messiah" they called him.

What the actual fuck is wrong with these people? Is this really the best they can find as a revered party icon?

5. A few other problems with the law from his past

"In May, he crashed his Porsche into a palm tree in the gated community and left the scene of the accident. According to a Jupiter police report on May 12, an officer found the Porsche with extensive front-end damage but no driver.

Laura Gavidia told the officer that her husband suffered from a medical episode, possibly blood pressure-related, and was sleeping."

-------------

Gavidia was sued in Palm Beach County Circuit Court in February 2009 by two investors who said they had invested $4 million in Direct Connect but failed to see any returns. Gavidia was accused in the lawsuit of running a “racketeering enterprise” in order to defraud investors.

The lawsuit, which sought $12 million, was dismissed after it was moved to federal court and the plaintiffs missed filing deadlines.

Gavidia called the lawsuit "a shakedown" and said the plaintiffs never gave him any money.

---------------------------
A decade before that, Gavidia served federal prison time for conspiracy to distribute marijuana. He was charged in 1998 in Alexandria, Va., and entered a plea the following year.

His original sentence of 60 months was reduced after he provided substantial assistance in investigating or prosecuting another person.

9. Medical problem? Sleeping?

He was drunk as a skunk, and he abandoned the car to avoid a dui.

He was sleeping it off.

12. Good riddance to human garbage.

Anybody who paints TRUMP on their boat isn’t well. I swear some of these cultists actually want to fuck the orange clown.

And that picture in the article of him standing elbow-to-elbow with Junior, neither wearing masks of course, is just the cherry on the douchebag sundae.

13. Stupid people flock like sheep to a "strong man"

Gullible people are receptive to right-wing propaganda and believe the "strong man" will keep them safe. Safe from all those imaginary dangers their TV and radio tell them about.

15. My favorite part of this story...

...he was sad because he was being ridiculed by residents in the community and harassed by Property Owners Assoc.

Guess not all of the rich people in Jupiter are blind.

16. with trump getting votes

from Spanish speaking peoples when he literally snatched children from the arms of parents and caged them, it's like a vet voting for trump when he has had NOTHING to say of Putin putting bounties on the backs of American military personnel in Afghanistan and Iraq. I can only end up shaking my head at the willful ignorance and blindness of some Americans.

And every last individual like this Gavida character I hope is convicted to the fullest extent of the law.
