Miami Mayor Francis Suarez under ethics investigation

Mia­mi May­or Fran­cis Suarez is under inves­ti­ga­tion for alleged­ly accept­ing expen­sive tick­ets to a For­mu­la 1 race in Mia­mi and to the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The Flori­da Com­mis­sion on Ethics is inves­ti­gat­ing a com­plaint from activist Thomas Kennedy, who says he had ques­tions about the may­or’s pricey tick­ets, accord­ing to the Mia­mi Her­ald.
