FOR THE VICTIMS

While what the New York Times has deemed “(t)he fast-moving national reckoning over sexual harassment in the workplace” continues unabated in the high-profile professions, many are wondering when shoes will begin to drop in other fields.  After all, there are powerful people who have done bad things in all walks of life, even if they aren’t as rich or glamorous as the folks in New York, Los Angeles, or Washington.  And their victims, of course, are just as important as the long-suffering who work in media, national politics, or the arts.

Here’s the point.  The Broward County court system is no stranger to scandal and corruption.  A former Sheriff went to prison, judges have committed dangerous crimes and other detestable acts, and a chief judge a long time ago was himself accused of sexual harassment.  Is it not reasonable to therefore wonder over the past few decades if some of the powerful who are still employed or work in the courthouse, or have retired or left otherwise undetected, were sexually abusive or inappropriate?  Is it possible there have been settlements, compromises, or cover-ups over the years?  And isn’t the integrity and sanctity of the justice system more important than a television show or movie, while acknowledging that all victims everywhere deserve compassion and justice?

      Someone should give this advice Jay Spechler. How could his wife Mindy Shrago let this happen? Worse they are the first family of our children’s museum.

    Time to find out why Spechler really was considered such a threat or danger he was banned from the Courthouse by Tobin?

    Why did Spechler not defend himself before the JQC while he was a Judge? Judges make mistakes and hang in to take their licks from the JQC . How bad could it have been for Spechler to cut and run so fast?

    Would love to hear Lisa Trachman’s take?

    Why did Lisa resign so suddenly?

    Did Bob Trachman really kick Spechler’s ass at Dutko’s Christmas Party?

      Old story, it has been rumor around the courthouse for years. The rumor is that Sprinks got caught grabbing ass on Judge Trachman at the Dutko’s holiday party. Trachman had words and shoved Sprinks. Zeidiwg asked Sprinks to leave and he got mouthy with him. Who knows if true?

      Judge Von Teffs was a great Judge and inspiration to women everywhere. She made a mistake getting involved with someone who turned into a monster and made life miserable for her, Mr. Trachman and Scarlett. Scarlett and her mom live happily in the western part of the country, away from this place. Leave them be.

    The problem isn’t just the secrets that need to come out, the problem is also that known sexual harassers were continually promoted despite their bad behavior. Consider the man who constantly made sexually inappropriate remarks to every female colleague he worked with at the SAO for over a decade then somehow ended up a misdemeanor supervisor training 25 year old baby lawyers that could say nothing about his inappropriateness. Do you really think Satz and Marcus had never been told about his disgusting conduct?

        The above is not about Tony Loe, though Satz and Marcus are aware of Tony’s relationship with a certain young female attorney that likes to spend 7 hours a day in his office. Anyone who works or worked at the SAO knows who the above is about because he was open about making sexually explicit comments to every female, including to supervisors who did nothing about it. And forget about the 25 year old baby lawyers. How about the even younger interns subjected to his behavior.

    Don’t bother reporting sexual harassment in the clerk’s office. Not only will they (management and HR) do nothing about it, but they’ll later go ahead and promote the perp, into positions he’s not qualified for! Twice!

      Considering the Clerk herself was a victim when she was hit on by her predecessor and subsequent husband, nothing at the Clerk’s office can be considered shocking.

      WELCOME TO BROWARD WHERE ITS ROTTEN TO THE CORE OF GOVERNMENT. OUR COURT SYSTEM IS EVEN WORSE.
      START WITH THE BROWARD COUNTY COMMISSION WHERE THEY HAVE ALLOWED YOUNG AT ART TO KEEP THEIR DOORS OPEN DESPITE VERY DISTURBING QUESTIONS REMAINING.
      JUST HOW MUCH TAXPAYERS MONEY HAS BEEN WAISTED TO DATE AND TO WHOM HAS THE MONEY ACTUALLY GONE.
      BROWARD COUNTY COMMISSIONERS SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

      The thread is about inappropriate sexual contacts, an Ex Judge who is in portrait painted with his topless daughter on his lap is very relevant. The above poster is right, why is the County Commission and others looking away at these people who run our children’s museum.

        Jews: Sexually Perverted — and Remaking Society in Their Image

        Just as Jews tend to remake the societies they invade into mirrors of the multiracial, multicultural cesspools in which they evolved, they also instinctively attempt to mold their host societies to match the high levels of sex perversion naturally present among Jews.

        They are clearly infecting us with their own long-term psychosexual illnesses, which are today illustrated by such repulsive manifestations as Yuval Topper — “born female [and who] underwent a sex reassignment surgery to become male, discovered that he’s gay, married a gay man, and … became the first Israeli transgender man to conceive and give birth to a baby” — and the “the all-transgender, all-Jewish, folk punk band called Schmekel.”

        From the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, the Jewish author justifies what I believe is biological, instinctive behavior in “scriptural” terms.

        What we are witnessing here is a type of evolutionary competition in which a species or subspecies (in this case, Jews) modifies its current environment to more closely resemble one in which it has thrived (multiculturalism, multiracialism, pervasive sex perversion) but in which its competitors (Whites) cannot thrive and are weakened. Jews do not all necessarily do this consciously (though many are intelligent enough to see this pattern in themselves, I am sure). But that they are doing it is, in my view, indisputable.

      Let’s hope so, then maybe Satz will pay his trial attorneys what they’re worth instead of wasting money on useless non-lawyers…oh wait, all his trial attorneys got tired of waiting and quit already.

    Political considerations always trump petty internal disparity when you’ve been around a long time and intend on taking it as a badge of honor banner to the inevitable hereafter.
