Miami candidate once arrested on credit card theft charges, disorderly intoxication


Miami Commission candidate Denise Galvez Turros was arrested in 2010 on charges of disorderly intoxication, and also in 1994 on accusations of credit card theft.

Miami-Dade and state records show the charges, first reported Friday by blogger Elaine De Valle, were either dismissed or dropped by prosecutors. In a text Friday, Galvez said she “was not driving or even in a car, so there was no DUI” in 2010, although De Valle published a Miami-Dade mugshot profile that characterized the charges as driving under the influence.

Galvez did not address the credit card charges.

Galvez is one of three candidates running for Miami’s District 4 commission seat, which is being vacated by commissioner and mayoral candidate Francis Suarez. She is believed to be trailing Manuel “Manolo” Reyes and Ralph Rosado heading into election day on Tuesday.

Court dockets show Galvez, who runs and owns her own public relations firm, Go To Marketing PR, was arrested in 1994 by Miami-Dade police on a felony charge of credit card theft and misdemeanor illegal signing of a credit card. Court dockets show the felony was reduced to a misdemeanor and dismissed. No action was taken on the charge of illegal signing.

She was also arrested

Senate candidate Roy Moore’s son is arrested for the ninth time


The son of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore has been arrested in Alabama on a misdemeanor charge linked to allegations of illegal hunting.

Etowah County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Natalie Barton tells news outlets 27-year-old Caleb Moore surrendered Monday on a charge of third-degree criminal trespass. He was accused of hunting without permission and hunting over bait last year.

Barton says Caleb Moore was released on $1,000 bond.

Moore’s campaign issued a statement calling the arrest a “cheap political trick.”

Caleb Moore was arrested on drug charges in 2015, but those were dropped after he entered a pre-trial diversion program. 

Monday’s arrest marks the ninth time the 27-year-old has been in jail, AL.com reported. 

Roy Moore is facing Democrat Doug Jones in the special election for the U.S. Senate on Dec. 12. Moore is a former Alabama chief justice who’s been removed from office twice.

Ex-GOP Candidate Arrested in KY Says He Was Rescuing Horses


A former South Carolina Republican congressional candidate is accused of stealing horses in rural Kentucky earlier this month, but he contends he was actually rescuing the horses.

Charleston media outlets report that Curtis Bostic, 55, was arrested Dec. 18 near Jackson, Kentucky, and charged with felony unlawful taking of livestock. He was released on $2,500 bail the next day.

The former Charleston County councilman said Tuesday he was in the Appalachian foothills on a “humanitarian horse-rescue effort.” He didn’t go into details on the pending case.

A court date is set for Jan. 23.

But his son, Daniel Bostic, posted on Twitter that the horses were starving.

“Crazy that we live in a country where you can be arrested for rescuing a starving animal,” he said in the post.

In his mugshot, Bostic is wearing a campaign T-shirt from his 2013 unsuccessful bid for Congress, when he lost the GOP primary runoff to former Gov. Mark Sanford. Bostic, an attorney, served on county council for eight years until 2009.

The Marine veteran owns Peaceful Way , a 35-acre farm in Ravenel that offers activities including horseback riding.

Ginny Grulke, director of the nonprofit Appalachian Horse Center, said that it’s common practice
