Our post In Or Out, asking whether or not Bobby Diaz will retire or run again in 2024, sure seems to have touched a nerve. Call it a coincidence, but the anti-JAABLOG commentary is now laughably vitriolic, to levels not seen since the earliest days of blogging, when JAABLOG jump started the criminal justice and judicial accountability reform movement in Broward County.
Why it’s happening now is anyone’s guess, but one thing’s for sure: lawyers and others need to exercise their constitutional rights and run for office. Quite simply, elections, win or lose, make for better representatives and judges. There’s a reason why national office holders always have a fight on their hands, and it shouldn’t be any different at the local level, where elected officials, and judges in particular, hold even more sway over the lives of the citizenry. No one is entitled to a constitutional office, no matter how arrogant or comfortable they may have become, and if job performance isn’t up to snuff, they need a challenge. Beat them, or help them help the community they swore to serve by keeping them on their toes with a spirited campaign.
To quote Tom Petty, we won’t back down. Never have, and never will. So to all those who disagree with our position or are simply not fans of the democratic process, pour it on. In the meantime, let’s look forward to a vigorous and entertaining 2024 election season …

Gelin is the the best. If you don’t like it, don’t read it. I support what Gelin does. Love it.
Bill Gelin has opened air vents and cleaned the courthouse! No mean feat after so many years of Dale Ross!
HE DOUCHED ME BUT GOOD
Let’s all announce ready for trial and watch his face turn red. Show up on Monday and his face was even redder from intaking too many fluids. He couldn’t handle a court docket.
He was a don’t make me work hard judge and do my job judge. He wanted plea after plea because he did not want to do trials. It was difficult to expose a client to a trial loss and jail time for what length he decided. Complete red faced nut job.
In probate he was the same irritant judge.
Did not make a decision would throw you out of chambers tell the parties figure it out in the hallway. News flash if we could do that judge we wouldn’t be in front of you Judge. I found him very unlearned in the law and intolerant. Intolerance covers for incompetence.
The only other judge I know of that was as bad him was Geoffrey Cohen. What a holy fake roller. Did my wife drown like Natalie Wood.
The negative comments and anger are from the slackers and incompetent leadership, judges and others on the public dole Gelin exposes.
Jealous jealous!!! it sounds like Gelin hit a nerve with Judge Diaz. Your jealousy of him is so obvious. You need to get over the fact that Gelin outsmarts you every single time. He’s a much better lawyer and has more $$$$$$ thank you will ever see. Plus, unlike you he’s happily married and has real friends.
I’m proud to call Gelin my friend. He’s the only one that isn’t sucking at the public tit and has done more to clean up this lousy sewer of corrupt judges than anyone I can remember. Those that say otherwise are either complete morons or are jealous of his efforts. He’s one of the best criminal defense lawyers this one horse town has and deserves great credit for it and for all the things he’s done to expose the corruption, nepotism and sleazy dealings of what goes on behind the scenes.
Keep up your good work Bill because there are many that have faith in you.
OMG someone tell Diaz to stop writing on JAABLOG before he gets in trouble AGAIN. He just needs to start writing his resignation letter and do us all a huge favor!!!
THEYRE GOING TO MISS MY TACOS 🌮
Nobody cares about Diaz race. The Forman post is interesting though. Who runs. Who has the balls to call her out. Who cleans house after winniing.
Old Man Backman?
Sucks Backman’s ass
You had your chance. Forman won Broward lost.
Someone made a boo boo. Tom was a great Judge.
Someone made another sloppy boo boo.
Tom wasn’t a racist. He’s a good guy.
So many comments. So many. Innocent spouses.
Sloppiness is the cardinal sin. It must be punished.
How thick is the envelope? How much postage ?
Oops? Is that the defense?
What’s the price for hypocrisy and crocodile tears?
Jetblue/Spirit announces direct flights to Tallahassee. PowerPoint is better than postage?
Cat got your dung?
Sloppiness must be punished. Out of principle if nothing else. There’s too many people watching. It sends the wrong message.
Some geezers are too cheap to hire the Geek Squad for regular checkups. Sloppy strike three.
Hey arelene where you love birds living these days?, hope the rumor isn’t true that Paul has burned through all the money you inherited as the black widow to your deceased husbands. Is it true after pissing away six figures on the clerks race you had to sell your beloved beach condo?
I TRIED TO SQUIRM MY WAY BACK ONTO THE PUBLIC TROUGH
BUT I WAS HAD
EVEN DRAGGED MY MOTHER OUT TO CAMPAIGN
WE GOT OUR GREASY BUTTS KICKED BUT GOOD
We think Detective Banigan is the perfect candidate to take over the Clerk’s Office.
March next door this minute Beaver and apologize to Mr. Banigan for breaking his window.
I NEED YOUR HELP MOMMY
She says she’s no antisemite. It makes me sick to see people like Tuter posing for pictures with her.
Anyone that stuck by her should be fired. I hope she loses. I hope everyone in her inner circle that stood by her post-Hitler will be fired.
IF WE GET KICKED TO THE CURB BY VOTERS BOBBIE HAS PROMISED US A TACO STAND IN FRONT OF THE COURTHOUSE
The whole management team should be wiped out. Check out some of the directors too. In place as Brenda’s puppets and spies. Anyone with brains and talent was a threat to Brenda so they left. She put in place flunkies she can control. The IT department is a joke. The whole place is a joke. Brenda needs to go and some serious reorganization has to take place. And Diaz backs this all for wifey to be Brenda’s shadow. It’s amazing and shocking.
The Brenda/Diaz connection is well known among courthouse insiders. Diaz will squeeze it for all its worth until he finally hits the skids which couldn’t come soon enough for the Broward Judiciary and Citizens of Broward. Diaz is the biggest joke on the bench despite his efforts to align himself with Tuter and Forman. They say every dog has its day and I get the feeling Diaz’ day is close. Many judges can’t wait until he’s out of the picture for good as he’s an embarrassment to all of them. They’ve been quite vocal about it. I personally believe Diaz has made a fool of himself so many times its time for him to be flushed out of office. One thing for sure is he won’t be missed and will only be remembered as the self serving buffoon he is. Tuter is just as bad or worse and we all know about Brenda’s past blowouts. She must be mental. Tuter is just a pandering idiot.
Brenda has no business running the clerks office. And Diaz politically pimped for her so his wife could keep the overpaid big salary. That is a huge disappointment for many who gave him the benefit of the doubt. Everyone knows it. Her job is to hang out with Brenda and be her shadow. Too many talented people in that office have left because of Brenda. Retired earlier than planned or sought employment elsewhere. The ones who are there listen to Brenda no matter how unethical the situation is or uneasy they feel. The place is an absolute mess. Someone needs to come in and remove people brenda put in place for personal reasons solely. She has no idea how to manage people. And she doesn’t have the brains or sense to comprehend what is involved in managing the office. She got elected solely on the name Forman. She’s not qualified and has done a lot of damage. Diaz backs this. Unbelievable.
After watching Forman rant on the news about how God wants her to be clerk of court and He’s slamming her opponents as drunks and whatever else she was babbling about. The Hitler incident. I couldn’t watch much of it because it was shocking someone this unstable was elected as clerk. I can’t imagine what it’s like to work there and worse yet be her side kick flunky like Diaz’s wife. What man would want his wife working for someone like that? Do they need the money that bad? Can’t she find another job? And it’s not just the courthouse. Others in the county know about her too and couldn’t believe she was elected. But when you hear Diaz backs all of this insanity and incompetence there are no words.
I think most of the county saw the crazy Brenda rants and the Hitler incident. I think it even made the national news it was so bizarre. Congress members had to condemn the Hitler statements. Again Diaz backs all this so his wife can keep her cushy job but who wants to be around someone like that?
in their defense i think that picture was before the antisemitism
She’s broward county version of the vp.
Stop. Please. Can you not see you’re playing into his hands? Yet again?
