      How I see it the bottom of the ballot? It’s Gamm!! Lol. She will be a good judge. She was in private practice for a while. Didn’t make it so she came back to SAO. But at least she knows what it’s like to run a business.

      These two clowns are doing med mal defense.
      A couple of county court judges who only presided over pip cases and duis. Neither of them have actually been an attorney of record as counsel in decades. Never came close in their careers to trying a med mal case. I feel sorry for thier doctor clinets .
      Must be tough going in the mediation business with Circuit Judges like Lynch, Sfritfeld and Tobin getting the big firm cases.

        You would think Zaccor would have landed with Di Pietro as he has trial experience. If it is true Jay and Coward’s mediation businesses are drying up, they probably came pretty cheap.

    RUMOR has it– that it was a close call between WEEKES AND GAMM until Stacy ROSS chimed in. The real question is why would ROSS bash Weekes and support GAMM? Just another example of Browards shady politics. If I was WEEKES I wouldn’t take it sitting down!

    All these negativite posts are from two fat losers – Michael ATurd and his loser sidekick (that failed the bar ten times and never passed it), Tom Lauder. They scare judges so that they can get work on campaigns to buy more food and slop for them and their fat wives. Tom Lauder pretends to be a reporter but has the credentials of a person that cleans douche nozzles for a living. ATurd slothes around the courthouse for $250 mediations and licking Jack Seiler’s dirty butthole in between. Honestly, ignore these two ass clowns. As fat as they are, they won’t be around for very long.

        Why would the TP be different in one part of the judicial complex than others? Can South Fl Corruption investigate this? Is this not an Equal Protection argument?

      Saggy Sarah, can I hire your loser husband for my DUIs…. awe he’s a “reporter” and a NOT a lawyer. Sucks, enjoy your $9/hr job at Sawgrass Mills. The Court records show your husband has less than $100s in the bank. Kind of sad. Your two downs looking kids will be losers since you are a criminal and dad is, well.. and total loser that has a hard time taking venting machine money from his parent to eat at Burger King. Find a new fatty Saggy!

    Here is a story….YAA is having a 1000 a head fundraiser today and claims the proceeds are going to their charitable endeavors. It is cause for speculation tha they are diverting money to these endeavors because if the profits were to go to YAA directly, the County may be able to take a significant amount to pay down their existing mortgage.

    Pull the transcripts from the Mid October County Commission Meeting and the one after the November election. Very interesting discussions about the YAA lawsuit against the County and the fight about how YAA interpreted the contract so they paid very little on the mortgage.. Per the November meeting it appeared YAA cut a new deal. Months later no deal has been approved and the law suit is still active. One would guess it is a savvy move by YAA to avoid signing a new deal and keep the lawsuit open so as to keep as much incoming revenue to themselves until their suit with the County is resolved.

      Think one of the reasons the law suit was filed was a slick maneuver, because now at the commission meetings don’t they make the claim they cannot discuss any issue with YAA because of pending litigation.

      Sure what you described is also happening. Of course they don’t want any direct money. Then they might have to pay their bills. Seems they’ve never had ANY intention of paying the county.

      The way that place is we bet if someone got a list of their vendors that sell everything to them like toilet paper, vending machines, we would find that they are all family of one of the officers too.

      Think Red Broward goes to those meetings.

        Something more interesting to look into is if this 1000 a head fundraiser is really going to charities, is anything being kicked back? Someone really needs to audit them again.

        I just don’t get it, I have known Jay for years and he always has to be at odds with someone. One of the best friendships in the Courthouse was Tom and Jay. Now to hear they are not friends is truly sad. As someone who just hit the big 6 0 myself, you would think Jay could be satisfied with his successes and just enjoy life. I saw Jay recently and all he could do was trash former friends and go on about how he is a victim. Sad. Jay is not a bad person. I really hope he finds some joy in life and distances himself from so much negativity.

          In the 90s the firm I worked for did a lot of work in County Civil. To his credit, Spechler was a great Judge and a nice guy with a positive outlook. People may not remember, Spechler was one of the biggest supporters for Lee Seidman to be appointed a County Judge. Things went of the rails after Seidman became a Judge. The Diaz thing forced everyone to become enemies. Seidman really brought out the worst in Spechler, Jay went from a good guy to being petty and vindictive. Then Spechler up and quit over a minor spat with Tobin, very odd. After Spechler left the bench I used him as a mediator, he is a very good mediator. The only downside, the more success he was as a mediator, all he could talk about was enemies and slights. To bad, Spechler achieved great success as a Judge and Mediator, it is sad over time he has become so bitter. Life is too short.

            He went radioactive after losing to Tobin. Short trip for some. There was never much behind the curtain anyway.
            Hope he doesn’t wind up like Dale. The rumors are disturbing with dumpster collecting becoming his newest obsession.
            They lose it when they’ve done themselves in and have knowbody else to blame for it except those that used to be their friends. It’s always somebody else’s fault for their mental meltdown if you ask me.

          Dale Ross did the same thing at the end. He became nasty and bitter when he couldn’t have his way. Not very different from Sprinks. Sprinkles is a sadsack legend in his own warped mind from a time when County Court judges thought they were really something in this one mule town. What success? All he’s ever done is suck pennies from the public trough until he became a zipperhead and even screwed that up. U can’t feel too sorry for a self destructive loser with a real penchant for close personal relationships! LOL. Facing reality is a real chore for this punk. Small fish in a small pond.

      Bullies always head for the bushes when confronted. Peggy Gehl dealt that panzie the death blow. He did the rest to himself and just can’t get beyond it. Hates everybody now.

    The Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel visited Moe’s chambers Tuesday. Two pillows, a set of sheets and a comforter covered a couch. A couple of shirts lay strewn over one of the chairs. A TV rested on one table by the couch. Novels were stacked on another table. Nearby sat a small refrigerator. A laundry basket filled with clothes stood by the bathroom door. Shirts and trousers hung in an open closet.

    When reporters returned Wednesday, the office had been cleaned. The pillows, sheets, comforter, laundry and clothing had been removed.

    “See, it’s nothing but an office,” Moe said.

    Shmoe slept here

    The same Shmoe that made everone read a script in addressing his moeliness.

    Shmoe.

    Imagine requiring that of people that could support themselves all by themselves without resorting to squatting in public business buildings.

    These Broward bozos need a lesson in reality. The shmoes need opponents every time up. It’s about respecting their superiors. The people that make good livings through hard work or those that work hard to help other people for low wages. The people that pay their bloated salary and pension need to be respected at all times.

    Shmoes.

    99% of all the posts on this blog or from Jack Seiler’s and political consulatant, Michael Ahearn. Michael needs to know that he can only get so far in life blogging. Hopefully Michael gets psychological help for his obesity problems and mental health issues so that he can move on his life. Jack really need to counsel him and get him on the right path and get him help with is weight issues.

      I think you are right. Mike is a great guy. Has an awesome wife and moral support from great people. I know the issue with his obesity really bothers Mike. I only pray he get moral and mental support so that this blogging stops and he lives a meanful life and not the life he leads now which is pointless.

      I think you hit the nail on the head. Mike really is a super guy. But I think he’s just lost his way. Hopefully his friends Patrick and Jack can help Mike with his issues. He’s wife is very awesome and can help too. If Mike gets on track, he dump blogging for a living and practice law with his mentor Jack.

          Funny Sprinkles ducking around the corner of the building rather than face the music. Kind of the same thing he did when he lost his job after the scuff with Tobin. Hit the road running! Lol. It’s getting old about now.

    Does anyone from the PD’s remember a man named Jonnie Scott?

    We’ve been talking to him for a couple of weeks and went through his court docs and agree he got screwed bad.

    The SA should have dropped the charges.

    PD’s we have not forgotten you. Don’t think the attacks hurt our feelings. We don’t expect to make friends.

    We contacted all the attorneys on the list and only 2 have responded to confirm they were PD’s and resigned.

    We’ll still let the voters know what’s going on with the little info we have. They should know.

    Didn’t the PD’s office have the same problem in 2009? Or has it been going on for all these years?

        We don’t know either.
        We see what people write about Michael Ahearn.

        If he’s a political consultant for Jack Seiler, than he’s probably a piece of shit like the mayor.

        Jack Seiler+FLPD=NAZI

        FLPD is really the only police agency we really have a problem with. Lazy lying assholes. No I wasn’t arrested by them just lived here a long time and seen a lot.

        Can hope that when the chief quit and went to work for the sheriff, that maybe the next focus of the sheriff’s public corruption unit will be FLPD.

        As defense attorneys you really should read this article. Don’t think anyone else reported this.

        Even so, we had the sense to ask the sheriff if the uniformed deputies in the jails will be wearing body cams, and have an email from the PIO to confirm it’s in the planning stage.

        If it’s not happening by next year we’ll start to bother him about it. That’s great huh, no more the video is crappy or the camera didn’t work. Bet they’ll treat the prisons better then.

          What do u do when the only answers can’t hold up to any kind of scrutiny of the logical type other than to soak the Broward County Commissioners for more sheckles but run for the bushes or pose for another piece of crap so called painting with your adult daughter laying half nude across your lap in what’s got to be one of the weirdest depictions this same weirdo could come up with !
          I’ve never seen so much crappy junk posing for art in one place other than Young at Fart so called art museum! Lol.
          You’ve really got to be kidding me. Broward Commissioners are being taken for the ride of their careers as this ridiculous excuse for artsie fartsey rolls into its last phase. Call it art and reap the benefits of a deep pocket for how long now as Sprinks the clown runs for the woods !

            ATURD IS WHAT HE IS. He hangs desperately to the coattails of slurpy political hacks so he can scarf up the crumbs from their table. His talents can’t keep the slop coming in on his own so he sucks the tit of anyone stupid enough to keep his gullet full. He’ll do anything to keep his bottomless gullet fed. Don’t let him fool you. He’s a fat pig in Baby Huey clothes with no hope.
            Now that Moron Ross is picking thru dumpsters and can’t keep him fed the lard, he’s got to do what he’s got to do. A real scumsucker.

        Yeah he’s the same one.

        Look up the case at the clerks website and you’ll see he was acquitted by jury.

        No evidence, no video from the inside of the school.

        If you know about this to make matters worse for him, when he get’s out of jail after 2 years and goes to Palm Beach to get his kids back, DCF has him arrested for child abandonment for being in jail here. What a lode of crap this guy’s been put through.

        Be talking to him later today, you’ll be reading the story on our website soon. Seems he just pissed of the wrong cop. Never was a gun. Or any witnesses, or video.

        Yeah, Big MIkey represented me too. What a great lawyer. He lost my case and I had to pay him a flat fee of $439 but the jurors raved about him and I think he is just the greatest. Jurors are enamored with Big Mikey.

    Mike reminds me of the Danny DeVito character at the being of The War Of The Roses. “When a lawyer who charges $500.00 an hour offers to give one advice for free, it’s wise to listen.” The next time I plan a hostile takeover of GM or Apple Computer, I am going to have Mike by my side.
