Regalado On Marlins Park: "The Residents Of Miami Were Raped"
MIAMI (CBS4) – With just two weeks until opening day, the Miami Marlins are making headlines again, this time in Sports Illustrated.
The magazine is profiling the ballpark deal that is being compared to "rape." The comparison was made by Miami's Mayor ...
Tomas Regalado, who hadn't seen the article until CBS4 showed it to him, is quoted throughout including a line where he says "Miami has a history of bad deals, but I would rate this Number 1. The residents of Miami were raped. Completely."
When asked about the quote, Regalado stood by it.
"I think it's the truth. I think it was a very bad deal," he said.
The total cost to the county is $2.4 billion, spread over 40 years, to repay $409 million in bonds that will primarily, though not exclusively, cover stadium construction.
Never mind that! The mayor said something that someone might pretend to be offended by. Exclusive! Must credit CBS4!
