        Monkeyman Speiser is the spaz that gave us Brenda Forman when it comes down to it. He split the vote and stuck the rest of us with a lasting memento of his stupidity and arrogance.
        Now he sits around drooling matzah and crying about how the election was stolen from him by a last minute switch of palm cards. What a goon.

      Bill Gelin’s true character shows when he posts “Busted” directed at a woman who turns out to be a former female client that court records show he represented himself in 2010.

      That may not be an ethical violation, but it clearly shows Gelin’s lack of character, whether or not the woman is guilty, and it shows that “Busted” is not merely reporting an arrest, considering that Gelin writes that the busted woman is the daughter of Clerk of Courts, Brenda Forman”, with whom Gelin has had an obsession on his blog for more than four years.

        Who cares if he represented her or not. She’s the daughter of the Clerk. Daughter had to learn it from someone. Pull a records request on the mother. Apples don’t fall far from trees.

    Who the hell is Bruce Lincoln ? I’ve been around for 17 years. Wills has been around forever but never heard of this Lincoln. Do mean to tell me it took four years working together to find out here were related ? WTF is that all about ?

        Yes he has been happily retired for about eight years. He worked as a judicial staff attorney for about 15 years where he was well liked and respested. As part of that job he acted as a special magistrate conducting juvenile restituton hearings. He resolved thousands of restitution cases. None of his decisions were ever reversed. It took Wills over ten years to find out what he was doing and then convince Howard Finkelstein to kill the procedure based upon some undisclosed lies. Ask anyone who workded in the juvenile division of the PD office during those years and they will tell you about Lincoln and how much they liked the procedure.

          So what’s the big deal. Staff attorneys are a dime a dozen around this ant mound. What does this useless gopher want besides some recognition for a job any idiot could do? Give him a Glupkin, but shut this little whiner up !

          Never in private practice. Just been on the dole his entire career if you want to call it a career. Never contributed squat. Now he wants to cry in his soup over having been scaled off the state payroll how many years ago? Don’t expect me to have any sympathy for this loser. He’s been nonessential personnel from the get-go as a staff attorney under Weinstein, another government lifer and just about as capable. It goes bad for these scabs when they can’t make a living off the taxpayer anymore. He’s bacon grease.

            Bill, you must be deaf, dumb, and blind. Lincoln is looking for nothing. He was in private practice for more than ten years. He would not take a job now for any amount of money. He is paid now by pensions more than he was making working for the govenment. He retired on the terms provided by the state pension plan and has never sought to return. He does not need or want any recognition. A little bit of truth as to the motivation of those who have at least attempted to cause him harm would be nice. As far as accomplishments, search his name on Westlaw and see what you find. As far as his early years, working for Big Al, he had the best trial record in the office having one at least five consecutive, impossible to win, felony jury trials. So check the facts next time.

        This coming from a slimey little toad like Backman ? Tried to squeal his little puppy onto the bench and the little worm dropped out because of the rep the Backman name brought to the table. Now he sits around with his straw and Biggy Coke talking about how he was twerped out in his run for the Clerk’s Office. The really funny thing is how he could have been beat by a scumbag like Brenda Forman. Shows how tough the wormy litttle troll really is.

      Voting by party is how you get all these idiots running the county including Brenda. You could call a park bench a democrat and party people would vote for it. No thanks! Check the record and look at qualifications.

      FYI. This card is not legitimate. The Democratic Party cannot endorse a judicial candidate, so this is not the real card. There is a real Democratic Party palm card, non-partisan races are not on that card.

      Instead, these fake Democratic palm cards are paid for by unknowns- but made to fool the voters and look like legitimate Democrat Party cards. The voters don’t know who gave them the card at the polls and don’t know who paid for them-but naively believe that these are legitimate Democratic cards, and they blindly go to the polls with the fake cards and incorrectly assume that they are voting for the Democratic Party’s candidates. They are not.

      Why should you care? Because candidates pay to be on these cards. Because whoever is paying for the card has an agenda and they want you to vote for their choices to serve them and their needs. Yes, the voters should educate themselves, but they don’t. So they just vote blindly following a fake “Democratic” card and the candidates on those cards will fair well even if they are completely unqualified, as long as enough money is spent to distribute the card.

      This has been going on for years. But the use of these fake cards is getting worse, and more effective in some communities. The candidates aren’t properly vetted and often chosen based on ethnicity, gender or race instead of qualifications.

      In fact in the primary a Republican candidate was on several of these fake Democratic palm cards. The real card would never endorse a Republican.

    Face it, Brenda and Bob Diaz’ wife have turned the clerks office into a carnival and it’s probably the worst run office in the state. The sooner these cronies, including Judge Diaz, are tossed out the better. It’s these types that give Broward the bad name it deserves.

    Nova Law has a JQC Judge on its governance Board. It’s a ridiculous place. There are more JQC Judges that trained there as lawyers than probably any other school in Florida. And Judge Diaz a JQC Judge is on the governance Board. It sends a ridiculous message. Since it couldn’t possibly be any lower ranked is one thing ok, but shouldn’t the school at least try?

        Networking is the goal of many incompetent gov. pimps. These two take the cake in Broward. No wonder Brenda’s daughter is in trouble. She learned from an expert. Just my call, but until these weasels are cut loose by voters, it’s business as usual around here. They’ve been doing it for years. There’s no honor among these pustules. They are but two of the worst offenders.

          It’s just incredible how anyone at all with any sense of decency could publicly be out there trying to promote this incompetent boob for public office. And he is a judge! I guess the wife makes more sense. she doesn’t have any other skill set to go elsewhere and make the money she does. But still. It’s beyond reasonable between Brenda’s rants about how God is going to harm her enemies and the idiotic things she does. That office has to be a mess. Many good people have left because of Brenda. Those are the ones who could get other jobs obviously. The ones who stayed can’t it seems. But the taxpayers pay for all this incompetence.

            I don’t know about all that, but Judge Seidman was an honorable, decent man who didn’t deserve to be treated like trash by a fellow sitting jurist. Threatening a Judge’s personal safety/peace of mind is beyond the pale. I would gather in today’s climate of zero tolerance by the Supreme Court that Judge Diaz would have been removed from the bench and suspended from the practice of law for such egregious behavior. Judge Diaz was simply lucky to have been afforded the opportunity to remain on the bench.

    Diaz can’t even stay awake on the bench. What more could you expect from him ? One of the last morons to sit, and by the looks of it he wants to suck it for all its worth not unlike that other moron Lazarus who finally dunked out. Diaz knows what he is and so does everybody else. He isn’t respected by the other judges but a guy like that doesn’t have any shame or honor and doesn’t care either. Just in it for the nickels. Not much of an achievement except to a guy like Diaz.

      Agreed. He runs around telling people how his wife is running the clerks office. Brags on end. He thinks this is true and he’s too stupid to know that’s nothing to be bragging about anyway. The wife just clings to the clerk and kissed her butt and does basically nothing but collect a check. Luckily there are some people low on the totem pole that keep the place running. It’s not the brain trust Brenda surrounds herself with.

          They have been there forever. What else can she do? I still can’t figure out what she even does. And Bob pimps for her to keep the job and money coming. Both are over paid and a waste of tax payer dollars. Brenda is a complete moron too. That trio seems to get away with it all. It’s broward.

    He’s always been a putz. He was just allowed to stay on the bench after being fined 15 grand and suspended and required to write letters of apology to the offended judge he threatened and to the Hispanic Bar simply because he was Hispanic and they were trying to diversify the bench.
    It’s what happens when merit doesn’t matter and gives way to politics. He’s never been a talented or knowledgeable judge, but he has down pat the ability to grease the networking aspect. It’s probably why he’s never been elevated from county. That, and he simply can’t cut the mustard to knowing the law. He’s been behind Brenda Forman because he’s managed to network the black vote for himself in return for influencing to some extent the Hispanic vote to swing to Forman. That way he keeps his wife on the payroll as well. Bob Diaz is a little worm and Broward would do a lot better without him. Saw him the other day and he doesn’t look well. All bloated physically but still full of himself. He’s way over the hill so to speak.

      Did the daughter have computer access to any money or accounts in the clerks office? The place is such a mess and people are so afraid of losing their jobs around her it’s not beyond the realm of possibility. I can’t be the only one wondering about this.

          Brenda would not have to even do it just have or provide access. She’s off the rails and has gone berserk on staff. And she’s incredibly vindictive as well. If there was a way to blame her perceived enemies and make a buck? It’s not beyond her.

      Sure would be a departure from the way she’s conducted the defense during the rest of the proceedings. I haven’t been the least bit impressed with her thus far. They could have chosen much better counsel than Melisa to represent this monster. She’s been way over her head since the beginning.

    Clerk of Court Brenda Forman attended the federal court hearing and co-signed the personal surety bond for her daughter’s release. Forman had no comment after the proceedings.

    The daughter of Broward County’s Clerk of the Court, and three of eight other co-defendants, have been granted bonds of $250,000 each to be released from the Broward County Jail to await trial in a federal tax fraud case.

    Among the release conditions, Jenkins must live at Forman’s home, wear a GPS monitor, and she cannot work or contact any identity theft victims or co-defendants. Jenkins must submit a DNA sample, surrender her passport and avoid airports, seaports, train stations and bus terminals. She must submit to random drug testing and possess no weapons.

    Mr. Gelin, as a prisoner I’m a big fan, but please stop posting arrest reports as if they are indicative of guilt. I understand this is an easy habit to fall into and you are not alone since the whole country does it, however, as students of law we must recognize and preserve the concept of innocent until proven guilty, inside the court and out.

    1. 1

      2

      Don’t be lame and thumbs down without challenging my position. State your basis for encouraging the customary de facto guilty until proven innocent practice your engaging in.

      The truth of the matter is an arrest proves nothing. Anybody can be arrested for anything at anytime and people are, all the time. They are also let go all the time after a fact finding process such as when the judge finds no probable cause at arraignment or when a jury determines the state has not me its burden at trial. In addition, a guilty plea proves nothing either.

      Take me for example. I’m guilty of a first time, non violent, no contact crime. They arrested me. I bonded out. They added a new charge an arrested me again. I bonded out again . Ostensibly to scare me, they Sent me a 40 year plea deal via an email. I came about a half inch from suicide. Lawyer who took my last dollar, and whom liked to hang out in the courtroom with the very prosecutor who wants me to die in prison, showing each other pictures on their phone and giggling like schoolgirl in between the most terrifying moments of my life, told me to chill. Got back on heroin to stay sane enough to function day to day. Day before court I was told that if I didn’t take a ten year plea deal they would stack the same 3rd degree felony 20 times and if I lost I’d be facing 100 years. Lawyer told me because of guidelines and blah blah blah the judge really had no discretion in sentencing it was just a points game and that if I lost it would be multiple decades not just one. Phrases like “hey at least you’ll still be young when you get out” were tossed around. I was 22. I signed their contract. Which by the way includes 15 years of probation after so I’m still on the hook for about 90 years of that 100 when I get out. (Y’all want to bet on whether I’ll make or will I die in prison?)

      Now that I’m done with my little sob story ask yourself, what was proven? Be objective. Did the state meet any burden of proof? Did a jury make any ultimate determination of fact? Oh well they don’t have to you pled guilty you say.

      Well I say this. If you can show me one single court in the on the planet That wouldn’t invalidate a buisness contract signed under those conditions as involuntary on grounds of duress, coercion threat…. I’ll cash app you five bucks.

      Arbitrary detention is not a new concept, it likely predates civilization. The founders of this country fought to establish a system which could check it. That’s why jury trials are so important and why the prosecutors office makes sure 98% of cases end in a plea not a jury trial.

      Open your eyes thumb downers. Customary practice is more powerful than law. Stop using arrests as proof of guilt in your conversations. Your ruining lives. Take some responsibility for the customs of our culture.

      By the way I am guilty. Unfortunately, no victim was ever identified so I have No one to physically apologize to, make amends or pay restitution to. Nonetheless I am genuinely sorry. I am not a hurtful person and it pains me beyond my punishment to know that I did another person wrong when they did nothing to me. I have no excuses only regrets.

      What about the ones who are not guilty? The more they look they find….
