Mayor Joy Cooper has been arrested and charged with three felonies: money laundering, official misconduct and exceeding the limit on campaign financing contributions. Each third-degree felony carries a maximum five-year prison sentence. Cooper was first elected to the commission in 1999 and has been mayor since 2005. She told the Sun Sentinel last year she had no plans to run again when her term is up in November 2020, but later said she’d changed her mind. Cooper, who has lived in the Hallandale Beach since 1991, is married to Dr Harry Cooper and has three children. She is no stranger to controversy. In November, her political rivals sent a letter to Gov. Rick Scott, asking him to remove her from office two days after she slurred her words at a commission meeting and appeared to be under the influence of “some behavior-altering substance.” Cooper said she was not drunk or on meds but severely dehydrated after contracting “Montezuma’s revenge” during … [Read more...] about Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper arrested, charged with 3 felonies
