Last week statewide political reporters were rifling through their Rolodexes to try to figure out who dropped a six-figure donation into a Boca Raton PAC “Boca Exposed” and why. Now, sources inside Boca Raton confirm that the mysterious beneficiary of the $100,000 soft money contribution will be the pro-development Boca Mayor: Susan Haynie.
