Could Michel Martelly's Foreclosed Florida Homes Ruin His Chances for the Presidency?

The Miami Herald released an article yesterday stating that Michel 'Sweet Micky' Martelly has lost three South Florida properties to foreclosure... Suddenly other newspapers are begining to ask "can he be trusted with Haiti's reconstruction money?"

Guy Adams from Independent.co.uk writes...

"The disclosure will add to the growing volume of questions about whether Mr. Martelly... is a suitable candidate to take possession of the entire nation's purse strings.

Research by the Herald revealed how Mr Martelly... invested in a string of houses and condominiums during the heady property boom of the early 2000s... At first, he made hefty profits... But when the property market began to crash in 2007... at least three of his homes were foreclosed upon..."

A spokesman for Martelly's campaign replies...

"I don't think it's related to his [Michel Martelly] capability to manage investments or his capability as a successful businessman... Every successful businessman has transactions that are not as successful all the time."

My Question to you is...

Could the bad economy in the United States cost Sweet Micky the presidency in Haiti?

Will the foreclosure crisis in the United States affect the outcome of this year's presidential elections?

Some mega companies in the world have made investments and have walked away to minimize their losses.

Michel bought a house 900,000 walked away from it, and it was sold not too long ago for. That is smart.

Someone had earlier mentioned that companies like Microsoft, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, AIG, Enron have made investments which were bad and were given a hand with taxpayer money to revive their schemes with new strategies.

I am not a supporter of Michel Martelly ...

I or anyone else who agrees with me should never try to judge his character but, WE concerned Haitians should be aware of all that can impact our country in a negative way. Complete disclosure is what every public servant goes through anywhere in the world and Micky is not exempt 'point final'...

If his past is fishy it must and will come to light no matter how many people are pulling for him to be next president of my beloved country.

Mr Martelly;not be afraid for the terror by night, nor for the arrow that flieth by day.Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness, nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand;but it shall not come nigh you.Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

There are angels charge over you to keep you in all thy

I wonder who in the miami herald could benefit from those negative posts.

Who is being paid by whom. Every investor knows about the housing crash why should it matter?

I am going to look into who is doing this and why. while they're doing their dirty job we will keep working.
