Tallahassee City Commissioner Scott Maddox posed for a photograph in a Las Vegas hotel room with undercover FBI agents, a prominent local businessman and a dwarf entertainer. The photograph shows Maddox giving the “hang loose” surfer hand sign and smiling next to the tattooed little person. Standing behind Maddox are at least three undercover FBI agents and John “J.T.” Burnette, developer of the Hotel Duval, the Gateway at Tennessee and Monroe streets and other notable projects.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida's state capital has been hit with a new federal subpoena — this time seeking emails from the city's former mayor and current City Commissioner Scott Maddox, making him the first elected official named in a massive, multi-year FBI public corruption investigation in the Sunshine State. The demand for documents comes about three months after a pair of federal subpoenas were served on City Hall and the local Community Redevelopment Agency.
Traffic on North Meridian was typical for a weekday evening. A steady flow of cars snaked up the canopy road as people went home to Tallahassee's northeast suburbs and shuttled kids to soccer games. Driving north to Forestmeadows Park in her silver 2005 Volvo, Rachel Hoffman fit right in. About 6:40 p.m. May 7, the Tallahassee Police Department informant was set to meet two suspected drug dealers and buy cocaine, Ecstasy and a gun.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
