Scandal-ridden politician commits suicide in Miami Herald building

Just after 6:00 PM this evening, former Miami City Commissioner Arthur E. Teele entered the Miami Herald Building, located at 1 Herald Plaza in Miami, intent to end his own life. He succeeded by fatally shooting himself in the head.

Teele, a Republican and prominent individual in the African American community, had been a leader in local government longer than any other official in Miami today, having serving on both the Miami-Dade County and Miami City Commissions. Unfortunately, he has recently been the subject of numerous investigations related to public corruption. Today's shooting comes just four days after Teele faced 26 indictments on counts of federal mail fraud, wire fraud, and money laundering.

As Teele entered the Miami Herald Building, he approached a security guard and asked that a message be delivered to columnist Jim DeFede. Teele asked that DeFede tell his wife that he loved her very much. Teele then removed a handgun from a bag and shot himself once in the head. Teele was transported to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital, only to be declared dead at 7:50 PM.

I know that Teele was a bad Republican - always out for big business and developers at the expense of his constituents, but it appears that those issues weren't the ones that pushed him over the top. The sexual stuff embarrassed him and created problems with his son. That is horrible.

I still think that suicide is the most self-centered thing anyone can do. My prayers are with his family. They must be going through a hard time.

The one that I don't appreciate is Mayor Carlos Alvarez. I can't believe that this scum bag used this as an opportunity to attack Teele. I'm glad that I don't live in Miami, because I could never vote for a piece of shit who disrespects the dead.

Alvarez is a poor leader and an even poorer Christian! The Lord will remember his actions. Alvarez should be ashamed of himself.

Alvarez didn't attack Teele. Did you even bopther to read/hear what he said? It was all about how there are consequences to your actions. Teele was a 100% slimeball crook and people are making him out to be Jesus. If there is a hell, Teele is there right now. The Mayor has been the only honest person to comment on this mess.

That's just a stupid response!

It's not that the comments by the mayor were wrong. Actually, he was 100% correct. It was his timing that was absolutely disgusting. Teele was a corrupt politician, but for God's sake, his body wasn't even cold by the time Alvarez started wailing on him.

I never liked Teele, and now I don't like Alvarez. It's sad that instead of acting like the leader of his community, Alvarez chose to sink down to Teele's level.

(What do they put in the Miami water?)
