The Sunshine State was semi-featured in one of the more touching moments from President Obama’s speech tonight:
I think of Leonard Abess, a bank president from Miami who reportedly cashed out of his company, took a 60 million dollar bonus and gave it out to all 399 people who worked for him plus another 72 who used to work for him.
He didn’t tell anyone.
When the local newspaper found out, he simply said “I’ve known some of these people since I was seven years old. It didn’t feel right getting the money myself.”
HERE is that story, folks.
