A political scandal rocking Dania Beach.

Vice Mayor Chickie Brandimarte could be removed from office if she misses the next commission meeting.

The city's charter says if a commissioner has two unexpected absences back-to-back they can lose their seat.

When Brandimarte missed the last meeting because she was hospitalized the mayor did not excuse it.

She blames dirty politics, saying the mayor is upset she didn't approve his choice to fill the seat of a resigning commissioner.

He has no comment.

She says she will do whatever it takes to attend the next meeting July 22nd.
