    Told you Usan would be saying so long to trough feed. Couldn’t happen to a bigger jarhead. Now he’s gotta go make a real living.

      Usan was running at a handicap. Name appeared last on the ballot and he wasn’t particularly popular in courthouse circles.
      This election more than anything else shows incumbent broward judges are vulnerable.

    Not so fast. There could be a lot of ballots to count. He was strong in early voting. The mail-ins may have been educated voters too.

    741 votes..how do you call that “too close to call”? I call that a W

    This is electronic voting for fuck’s sake – not like the days of ‘hanging or pregnant chads’

    Looks like the voters have spoken.

    Oh come on, if he asked for a ‘recount’ that would look so pathetic …this is ‘electronic’ voting!

    it was already bad enough what he did to his own reputation with the stunts he tried in the campaign to keep his job.

    Dear Judge Kaplan:

    I was always with you. I did write Judge Usan a check from my business account, my personal account, my wife’s account, and my children’s education accounts, but there was pressure and I have cases in there I’m sure you understand. But I was always with you and I swear I voted for you. I’m here for you forever.

    Signed,

    Talking about results, FYI.
    The JQC filed the notice of voluntary dismissal in the Contini case August 03. The FSC still has not signed off on it.

    From what we have seen, they usually sign off on something like this within about 1-2 weeks.

    Maybe they are still going to summon him?

      YES MICHAEL G AHEARN YOU ARE A MASTER OF SPEWING

      I commend, Ms. Rose, Miller and Stern/Golden/Johnson for running solid races for their candidates.

      Judge Affrick-Olefson is a once every decade or two candidate who spent what she needed to spend to win. Many candidates have had a lot of money and lost. I have heard that combination of Melanie Golden, Judy Stern and Eric Johnson were involved in the race and good job to them. I commend Candidate Padowitz, Amy Rose and Miller for fighting a good fight against tough odds. Lesser people would have not dug in, spent the money and fought on.

      I commend Judge Usan and his team for running a great race in a tough climate. I can’t deny that Judge Usan and my client Judge Kollra had very close races. It is unfortunate that these two Judges were subject to a misinformation campaign used to drive turnout in certain communities and it almost cost Broward two great Judges.

      I won’t deny the fact that Ms. Alspector dropped well over $100,000 the last month of the campaign on Mr. Kaplan for mail. Mr. Kaplan doesn’t need me to discuss his success, his record is well known. In the end, we were outspent almost 2 to 1 and did not have top of the ballot. Ms. Shotwell, like Judge Usan and Judge Kollra were subject to a misinformation campaign in certain communities , Ms. Shotwell only lost by a few thousand votes. I always own my loses as publicly as my wins.

      In regards to my mail pieces dropping the same day, remember of those 4, 1 lost, 1 won outright, 1 almost pulled 50% in a 3 way race and the fourth is going to be top of the ballot in November. Also add in my 5th client who didn’t do mail and came in first in her race and will be top of the ballot in November. Not perfect but I will take 4 out of 5 any day of the week.

      Finally, congratulations to those who ran, win or lose. Being a candidate is not for the fait at heart and takes great courage.

    BillyBoy:

    With reference to your consistent efforts to destroy the career of Judge Diaz, there can be only one conclusion: You are a pathetic failure.

    Outside of harassment:

    Your written “journalistic” manipulations have meant nothing.
    Your hounding of the staff and family of Judge Diaz has meant nothing.
    Your efforts on behalf of his opponent, Michael Heise, including the “journalistic” $500 contribution, have meant nothing.

    Didn’t the crushing defeat of Mr. Heise make all of this clear to you?

      Ok Bob. Did you enjoy being in the swealtering sun begging for votes? Did you enjoy having to use your money in this campaign? It was great seeing pictures of you sweating and pretending to be nice. To think- if you had actually been nice- you wouldn’t have had to spend the time and money you did to keep you job. Hope you had a great summer. Lol

        I agree. Bob was very rude to me in front of a client. That is why I voted against him and asked everyone I know to vote against him. Why it is so hard for judges to understand that all they have to be is nice. Rule against us but there is no reason to be confrontational.

          Answer: Because these type of Judges, like Diaz and Lee, have multiple personality disorder. They have been victims before, and now have the absolute power to be dominant.

        Please Bob- get off the blog and attend to your docket. I promise you no one that has to appear in front of you is glad you won. Lol. But they are all glad you had to behave at least for a while and had to use your money and time to sweat like a pig all summer!

    Afrik.. $ and TV works
    Kaplan… its all about the name
    Diaz….good to have a loyal army
    Kollra….you can beat a jewish name with a good campaign
    Alspector….Shotwell bad name in todays world
    Casey…jewish female with great name with no campaign can be beaten by a good campaign.
    Davis…..Sokoloff is a terrible name. I mean really anyone else could have beaten him
    Lee….actually campaigning is helpful and a good confederate name wins over a german one

    There is a lot of blame but never any acceptance of personal responsibility alas therein lies the problem.

      The problem is a double-bind installed by The Florida Bar,
      and JQC. No worries… Local elections are inconsequential.
      The thrust of the problems, lies in ignorance coupled with blind obedience. The Illusion of Justice.

        Pedo Gate Keepers are Pay for the Play Venues.
        Counterfeit forms accepted from our corrupted contractors, through our pay for play lawyers, by Judge Howard Coates.

        Court contractors keep Blank Police Forms in their office, to mimic an official process, that allows for the continuity of child trafficking. WW epidemic… SE. FL.- GR.0.
        These fraudulent contractor’s, covered-up a school district whistle blowers, and parents. They use the courts as a weapon to shut down exposure. “Continuity…

          The Pay for Play Teams of The Child Trafficking Industry.

          One of the perks of being a corrupt lawyer in the pay for play teams, is that corrupt politicians who are “appointed” to judge after failed elections, are able to conduct hearings without opposing parties present.

          Judge Howard Coates has no worries with The JQC.
          Rumor has it, Judge Howard Coates has The Chief Judge of The JQC in his pocket.

          Being part of The Wellington gang has its perks.
          Being an ex Wellington councilman voted out of office, s priceless.

    And Brenda “Makes Miriam Oliphant Look Competent” Snipes just found about 10,000 more absentee ballots and counted them.

    This now puts Judge Kollra out of recount territory and also puts Judge Usan ahead of Richard “Beat My Wife Please” Kaplan by about about 336 votes.

    Other races tightened as well.

    That is all.
