After a Miami Herald article revealed that there was no evidence District 25 congressional candidate David Rivera ever received income from the U.S. Agency for International Development, as he claimed on financial disclosure forms filed with the state, a judge has ruled that Rivera can remain on the ballot.

Following the article, William Barzee filed a lawsuit trying to remove Republican Rivera from the the upcoming contest against Democrat Joe Garcia. But according to the Miami New Times, Judge Jerald Bagley dismissed the suit, saying, โ€œWhatโ€™s reported in the news media โ€ฆ is not always true, and secondly itโ€™s not evidence. You know that.โ€
