    Hopefully as a Judge she will use her influence to bring attention to abusers like Kory Hill who is alleged in a BSO police report to have threatened to punch her in the head in Court. I hear the Bar was investigating this. If true, it was nice for Kory to be Gordon’s boy, he can threaten and assault a woman of color and PDO/Gordo doesn’t immediately fire Kory but just shuffle him off to ERU. What say you Ruby? Are you going to give Kory a pass on assaulting a fellow woman of color like Gordon did?

    IF TRUE, SPEAK OUT JUDGE, DONT LET THIS ABUSER GET AWAY WITH THIS !

      Why would Gordon fire him? Birds of a feather. Wasn’t it Gordon who was arrested for hitting his mother years ago? That’s my recollection.

      She could easily take Kory. . . Talk about a whimp. He’s got the intelligence of a parking meter. He wouldn’t see it coming.

    Finally, an appointment with a legitimate law degree.

    I thought you had to go to St Thomas or Barry to get appointed in Coward County.

    Great pick by a great governor.

        I agree. Is St. Thomas even accredited? Judges should come from UF, FSU, and UM. Top and second tier only. Anything below 2nd tier is at their own risk.

        St Thomas is the best law school in the nation! Proof? Look at me! I am the smartest, hardest working, and most successful lawyer in Broward county, and probably in the state of Florida.

        I graduated near the VERY TOP (of the bottom fifth) of my class at St Thomas.

        Stop hating on St Thomas you UF/UM/FSU losers.

              TRUE!! Gordon is the only qualified person running. We know that black offenders in Broward spend triple the time in lockup (on average), compared to white offenders- even when they score almost exactly the same # of points. We also know that the BSO police force is mostly white and they arrest mostly people of color. Racist Lynch, cloaked in all his white man privilege, is not the least bit equipped to fix a broken system that was designed to harm people that don’t look like him.

      “I never heard a bad word about Judge Lynch”

      So if Lynch was such a racist Judge how come Howard and Gordon never called it out? Not like they were ever shy about calling people out.

        Poor Gordon, if Howard had called out Lynch, this would have been over. Howard was smart to hedge his bets. Howard doesn’t want to be excommunicated from the office the same way he screwed Big Al, so he threw Lynch a bone.

          NEVER LYNCH!!! He is a KNOWN RACIST. Gordon W. is the only logical choice. Ruby is unprofessional, no leadership ability (she was even demoted and almost fired from PD) and lacks character. She’s barely doing the job she has now. Gordon is light years smarter than Howard- who’s a whole narcissist.

        Howard like most people know Lynch is going to win. Howard is a coward. He hasn’t even been in the office in a long time.
        Howard doesn’t want to be seen as having backed a loser so he’s staying under the radar. So much for carrying the banner of support for his successor !
        About as far as he gets from bed is the deli counter in Plantation.

      An overwhelming majority of Floridians see systemic racism as a serious problem in the U.S., polling released Thursday shows.

      More than half of registered voters surveyed in The New York Times/Siena College poll said police are more likely to use force against a Black person than a white person, that the criminal justice system is biased against African Americans and that they support the demonstrations that have been taking place across the country since the killing of George Floyd.

      Racism

      The poll found 56% of Florida registered voters see systemic racism in the United States as a very serious problem and another 28% as a serious problem.

      Just 8% said they thought it is not a very serious problem and 6% said it is not at all a problem.

          DISGRACED RACIST JUDGE TOM LYNCH HURT US

          Lynching is an act of terror meant to spread fear among blacks, served the broad social purpose of maintaining white supremacy in the economic, social and political spheres.

            Lynching, a form of violence in which a mob, under the pretext of administering justice without trial, executes a presumed offender, often after inflicting torture and corporal mutilation. The term lynch law refers to a self-constituted court that imposes sentence on a person without due process of law.

            This is such rubbish. Gordon Weekes is one of the smartest, most hardworking attorneys at Broward County PD, and the ONLY qualified person currently running for the PD office. The BS assertion that Gordon is Lazy etc. is such RUBBISH. Seriously? Who would choose to represent a million broke clients at once, and basically get pennies to do it, if they weren’t committed to the CAUSE/CLIENT?? NOT ME- that’s why I’m in private practice. Weekes does a mostly thankless job fighting to end abusive practices in juvenile jails, judicial and police reform.

            While Weekes has the MOST EXPERIENCE, he deserves the PD positon because he’s ALSO the only qualified person of color who’s running. YES HIS RACE MATTERS!! We know that black offenders in Broward spend triple the time in lockup (on average), compared to white offenders- even when they score almost exactly the same # of points. We also know that the BSO police force is mostly white and they arrest mostly people of color. Racist Lynch, cloaked in all his white man privilege, is not the least bit equipped to fix a broken system that was designed to harm people that don’t look like him.

            We NEED a Public Defender that knows Black history, and understand the struggle against injustice and oppression in this county/country; especially as it relates to black people. POC make up the majority of PD clients/ incarcerated population- Lynch put a bunch of them there. It would be an atrocity to vote for Lynch with his racist history or even Ruby, who’s only in the race because she’s upset with Gordon over a work place dispute. GROW UP RUBY!! You’re only hurting yourself by splitting the black/POC vote.

            POC in Broward are still dealing with disparate treatment at every stage of the criminal process, from traffic stops to biased sentencing- racist Lynch would make it worse.

      Yet Lynch says he wasn’t a criminal judge from 2004 to 2016. He was a criminal judge only three years of that time. And for eight months of those three years he was on one murder trial.

      “The database assigned my name to cases for at least six years before I was in the criminal division. Sloppy research and flawed journalism,” Lynch says.

    Brenda is COMPLETELY DELUSIONAL!!!! During the forum on Tuesday, she stated moral is at an all time high!!!! Maybe after she advised the employees “they don’t have a pot to piss in and a window to through it from.”

    Holiday party, REALLY!!!!!! The first one was a total bust and management was forced to go. The second did not happen after Bill Gelin released the salaries. (THANK YOU AGAIN, waiting on the new list)

    And as far as the salaries! NONE I REPEAT NOT ONE OF THE GHETTO CHIEF DIRECTORS HAVE FOUR YEAR DEGREES!!!! She named folks in the IT, department. They have only certifications not degrees. And for the record the IT department is absolutely horrible. Computer equipment out dated and yes the clerks office purchased the cheapest program. That’s why they are not as advanced as other clerks offices.

    In closing Brenda herself was a half ass online clerk. She simple gave head to the right man during a time in his life where head is all he wanted. SHAME ON YOU!!!

      You took the words right out of my mouth. Big D Forman doesn’t know her ass from a hole in the wall. She claims she has NEVER done anything wrong to anyone. What kind of statement is that when you reopen the office before having a solid plan, allow employees to hang about for 3 fucking weeks without masks (within the office), refuse to shutdown after positive cases start popping up, and don’t enforce testing before returning to work after known exposure? Don’t get me started on how all of the “college educated” supervisors, managers, and directors happen to be photographed all around her when she was running the first time. Convenient. I hope they made peace with their choices. The look on her face during the debate says it all. She can’t hide her disdain. The attitude on that one my god. I honestly don’t know if Backman or Speiser will be any better but the longer I live, the more I realize that politics is all about the lesser of two evils. Vote Brenda out like your life depends on it. And to her clerks, your life does depend on it. Please keep yourselves safe. Don’t expect Brenda to come to the rescue. She left the chat.

        And to insult to injury, she tells everyone she (the clerks office) has no more money. HOW!!!!!! The budget is set for the fiscal year. Salaries come off the top for the year. So the money WAS there for the salaries. What Brenda did with the money is truly up for discussion. There are rumors that she has implemented bad business practices when it comes to the finance department, she has hired two attorneys, she has used the money for her campaign ( after all she only has $3000.00 in her bank account) and the final option is the clerks office is top heavy. She, Brenda has created all of these chief director positions that was not there in the past. There are 11-13 employees making anywhere from 85,000.00 to 101,000.00 and of the 2 fully degreed. I’m not saying because you have a degree your better than anyone, but damn at least pick smart people to fill the positions. Also, does the words vindictive and petty ring a bell 🛎 with anyone. In central the majority of the management is vindictive and petty especially the upper management. They walk around with their noses in the air. Always going to useless meetings that serve no purpose. These are the people making decisions.

          There’s nothing worse than an old dumb azz that thinks he’s smart. We’ve got a more than our fair share sitting on the bench in Broward, but he’s got to win the prize for the biggest boob.

          Maybe Brenda feels better having less educated people around her. I don’t think she has a degree. She has a student loan for almost 30,000 she let go in default until a writ of garnishment showed up at the courthouse. Then lied to employees to try to get it so they didn’t garnish her wages. But maybe that’s why. And some people have degrees but not ones that arguably she should require for the job description or the positions they hold. But again Brenda only looks out for Brenda.

        She has done a lot wrong to many people. Let’s start with Howard Forman. What kind of person tries to get someone declared incompetent to take their money. This after the man worked to get her elected clerk and she’s making a big salary. It’s never enough for Brenda. She goes around Asking employees to spy on one another. Asks them where their loyalties are. She’s a paranoid idiot. And she can’t understand the complexities of the office. The IT department tries to control all the divisions in complete disregard for other rules and things each division has to do making their jobs harder. So hard in fact people in finance have left who really knew what they were doing. More will leave if she is re-elected. Meanwhile IT has archaic systems and can’t make the office run remotely. Some could work remotely but she refused to let them. Why? Why not let at least some stay home and help with social distancing. Again her poor judgment. The management there is a joke. It’s an office that should be run to make things more accessible to the public and the judges but it focuses on layering bureaucrat edicts to make that goal harder and to make it more difficult to do the job. They don’t even see it or they don’t care. Brenda thinks something is getting done but it’s just more bureaucracy. It’s not doing anything productive. Then there’s the borderline unethical and character problems with her. She had a writ of garnishment and lied to employees to try to get them not to pay it. She might have seen that as not having loyalties to her who knows! But I can tell you people in finance have left there in droves. She yells at employees too. It’s a very toxic atmosphere. And what kind of person attacks an attorney for trying to take their picture in public? She’s a public official. She thought her life was endangered? Getting your picture taken at the courthouse is putting your life in danger? She’s lying or paranoid. Either way she’s unfit for office. Then she files a bar complaint trying to hurt the guys livelihood. Just plain nasty to do that. Now here we are in a pandemic and again she’s clueless. She could have at least gotten her IT team to make it so some don’t have to come in and keep the shifts even smaller who do have to come in. The goal should be let’s keep as many home working as possible. Stop with the stupid bureaucracy and IT goal of some federal award when we are in a pandemic and need to be able to work in one. She has to be voted out. It will only get worse if she’s re-elected.

          Brenda has no soul. What she did to Howard Forman alone should make everyone vote her out. What a psycho. He works to get her elected. This person who has accomplished zero and was a low level clerk hit the jack pot! Making big money with a big retirement. Then she tries to get him declared incompetent to grab his money too. That isn’t just cold. That is no conscience cold! And she will drag God into the conversation and politics to throw people off the scent but that is just evil.

            A couple years ago a writ of garnishment for Brenda under one of her last names other than Forman Came to the courthouse. It was for a student loan. Hard to keep that quiet at the office since she was too busy trying to get support staff not to pay it so the creditor sent a couple! She couldn’t even handle that right. Just be quiet and work out a deal to remove the garnishment from your pay like the rest of us common folks. She eventually worked out a plan and had it removed but still. Rumors are there was yelling involved too. People can hear through the walls in the new courthouse that are very thin and cheaply made.

    Racist judge Tom Lynch is supported by Trump related henchmen Racist judge Tom Lynch has hurt us. He should be ashamed. The main stream press needs to be sure the voters are made aware of this destroyer of minorities.

      I personally appreciate being educated. Since I’ve seen this on the blog I read multiple articles and have clearly concluded that Judge Lynch is not as clean as people think. The articles demonstrate his inability to know his own bias. Now it is clear. Anyone but Lynch.

    The Sun Sentinel at least enlightened us about MAJOR ARROGANT BLEMISHES in candidate Tom Lynch’s record. In 2016 the Sarasota Tribune alerted the public about Lynch’s Extreme Racism tendencies. Since 2016 Lynch did nothing to demonstrate remorse. Instead of attempting to improve the system, he denies it. He blames his extreme racism on fellow judges. Lynch offers no ideas to improve systemic racism in the courthouse where he played a major part for 35 years hurtIng Minorities with his blatant extreme disparate sentencing. Lynch admits, he is color blind. He does not have the foreSIGHT to himself out of his contributed plight and has continued to inflict additional damage. His racism is significant and consequential even by standards of his own time. Lynch is dismissive of legitimate Black grievances. He fails to acknowledge and apologize for his own mistakes. Lynch is insensitive. It’s time for him to step up and drop out.

    This is such rubbish. Gordon Weekes is one of the smartest, most hardworking attorneys at Broward County PD, and the ONLY qualified person currently running for the PD office. The BS assertion that Gordon is Lazy etc. is such RUBBISH. Seriously? Who would choose to represent a million broke clients at once, and basically get pennies to do it, if they weren’t committed to the CAUSE/CLIENT?? NOT ME- that’s why I’m in private practice. Weekes does a mostly thankless job fighting to end abusive practices in juvenile jails, judicial and police reform.

    While Weekes has the MOST EXPERIENCE, he deserves the PD positon because he’s ALSO the only qualified person of color who’s running. YES HIS RACE MATTERS!! We know that black offenders in Broward spend triple the time in lockup (on average), compared to white offenders- even when they score almost exactly the same # of points. We also know that the BSO police force is mostly white and they arrest mostly people of color. Racist Lynch, cloaked in all his white man privilege, is not the least bit equipped to fix a broken system that was designed to harm people that don’t look like him.

    We NEED a Public Defender that knows Black history, and understand the struggle against injustice and oppression in this county/country; especially as it relates to black people. POC make up the majority of PD clients/ incarcerated population- Lynch put a bunch of them there. It would be an atrocity to vote for Lynch with his racist history.

    POC in Broward are still dealing with disparate treatment at every stage of the criminal process, from traffic stops to biased sentencing- racist Lynch would make it worse.

    Weeke’s attempt to use the race card is an old one used by many minority candidates when they are desperate. Weekes is neither qualified or well suited to be the next Public Defender. He has little to no trial experience and furthermore is not even supported by most of his co-workers within the office.

    Weeke’s attempt to racially smear his opponent Tom Lynch is not based on any empirical evidence other than his attempt to use the race card and should be condemned by anyone with a brain. It will fail.

    Finkelstein continues to be an embarrassment and absent from any dialogue that would substantiate any claims made by his underling Weekes for various reasons, not least of which would require a candid address of this baseless accusation.

    Remembering the students that lost their lives at MSD High School.
    Incompetence, ineptitude and cowardice come to mind.
    And Gordon Weekes associates himself and his campaign with this kind of trash ?
    This is not the kind of leadership Broward needs or wants.

    Vote no to Gordon Weekes for Public Defender and no to incompetence.

    Vote Yes for proven leadership, experience and excellence.
    Vote Yes to Tom Lynch for Public Defender.

    ALL I HAD TO DO TO BE PREPARED TO BE PUBLIC DEFENDER IS GET BUSTED FOR DRUGS – LOSE MY LICENSE TO PRACTICE LAW – SCREW UP THE OFFICE – AND SKATE FOR YEARS UNTIL I COULD PICK A LOSER LIKE GORDO TO SUCCEED ME

    Leadership matters. Action or [IN]action matter. How can the elected Public Defender in charge of defending the poor, the homeless, the voiceless, minorities in our community NOT take a stand, NOT act, NOT MARCH, NOT PROTEST, NOT SHOW up during the biggest movement on racial injustice of our time?
    He can’t.
    Gordon Weekes can’t lead. The job of the Public Defender requires a vocal leader at the forefront of this movement for criminal justice reform. Heck even the viable candidates for State Attorney know that and are speaking up.
    [IN]action by a candidate is cowardice and SHAMEFUL. Gordon is missing in action and has been for years. Instead, he’s just assuming he can walk into Howard’s vacant seat.
    We already know retired judge Lynch has been silent and is not speaking out for the poor. He sent them to prison disproportionately for years.
    1 candidate has acted. She has marched for criminal justice reform. Ruby has fought for the poor, homeless, minorities. She WILL keep fighting for the poor. Ruby can win. She deserves your vote for Public Defender,

    Gordon has been doing nothing for years under Finkelstein. He’s just the face man for the black community, and not very convincingly. He’s a deer in the headlights, about as sincere as Finkelstein when it comes to making a stand or doing anything that doesn’t include not showing up for work, not taking a caseload, or too much else but playing the same game as Finkelstein, which is to say, no game but that which is self serving and that of collecting a paycheck,
    Lynch or Ruby, despite what anyone could say about either one of them in the negative, are unequivocally better qualified than Gordon or Finkelstein to undertake the responsibilities connected with the PD’s Office.
    Gordon needs to go with Finkelstein when he leaves, as he can be considered nothing more than non-essential personnel. He’s been hiding behind a supercilious mask for way too long. The new PD needs to be something besides a fake, phoney bureaucrat with nothing to contribute.
