MIAMI (FLV) – Raquel Pacheco, Democrat running for State Senate in District 36, tried to resonate with Cuban voters in a new campaign ad.

A bio, exposed by Florida’s Voice Founder & Editor-in-Chief Brendon Leslie, reads that the Democrat is originally from Portugal, Spain, and Morocco, not Cuba. She lived there for the first 10 years of her life, after which she moved to Connecticut, U.S.

The candidate claimed to have to flee her country because of Fidel Castro’s brutal governance in the ad.

A Tweet from her also reads she has a “large Cuban family in Miami,” which she says “escaped Castro too.”

IRS documents also show that she filed for bankruptcy twice, did not pay back ~$27,000 worth of taxes, and defaulted on a ~$100,000 SBA loan – coming from taxpayer funds.
