The former president of Dade Medical College is accused of illegal lobbying.

The Miami-Dade Commission on Ethics and Public Trust finds probable cause that Ernesto Perez lobbied officials from Homestead and Coral Gables without registering as a lobbyist.

The Homestead case concerned plans to build a Dade Medical College campus on Community Redevelopment Agency Land land, while the Coral Gables issue centered around using an office building for the University of Southernmost Florida, one of Perez's affiliates.
