Florida Democrat forgets the Pledge of Allegiance at first public meeting

A local Democrat forgot the Pledge of Allegiance in her first meeting as a Miami city commissioner last week. Sabina Covo, who was elected as the Miami City District 2 commissioner on Feb. 27 in a special election, went blank-faced during the March 9 meeting after being asked to recite the pledge. “And now, Commissioner Covo, will you lead us in the pledge of allegiance, please?” she is asked in front of the room.  “You don’t know it? Ok,” the commission’s chairwoman whispered to Covo.
