Finally, Some Common Sense in Florida

The last we heard, a Florida court ruled that the GOP could not post signs saying that a vote for Mark Foley is a vote for Joe Negron. Well at last, we have some common sense coming out of that nutty court system.

The First District Court of Appeal ruled that signs can go up saying a vote for Foley is a vote for Negron, if they also say a vote for Mahoney is a vote for Mahoney.


The appellate court both upheld and reversed parts of the lower court which granted an injunction stopping signs from being posted in polling places in counties in the 16th Congressional district.

The order prohibits the Secretary of State from posting its signs, which only mention Negron for Foley. The Judges said those signs "suggest favoritism on behalf of the Republican candidate."

And amazingly enough, the Democrats are not appealing the decision.

I chuckled when I saw Joe Negron's campaign slogan: Punch Foley for Joe.

Democrats insisted that the Republicans stay within the law. They did. It was a fight that needed to be fought. Elections matter.

Now if the Republicans stay within the law all the way through election day and the vote tally - now that would be amazing.

Democrats are all for making sure Republicans aren't on the ballot, as we see in FL-16 and TX-22 this year.

Lee didn't get so outraged when the NJ Dems replaced Torricelli after the statutory deadline, though. His concern for "legal" remedies extends only so far as keeping Republicans off.

Shut up, Lee. There. I said it. Now get all riled up because I've stifled your free screed, er...speech.

That whole thing with not being able to remove Foley from the ballot and reprinting with Negron really irks me. There was plenty of time to reprint ballots for one district. Yes, it's in the Florida constitution so it must be followed. But I sure hope that in the near future Democrats are faced with the same problem. Then let's hear them squawk. There'll be an amendment on the next ballot.

Yeah, having to stay within the law at election time really riles those Republicans. All good Republicans feel the same way -- what good are election laws if you can't beak'em every once in a while so you can win an election?

October 2, 2002
The New Jersey Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that Democrats can replace Sen. Robert Torricelli on the November ballot with former Sen. Frank Lautenberg, even though the deadline for making such a change has passed.

Lee, you POS. Go ahead and ignore the part where I said, "Yes, it's in the Florida constitution so it must be followed." You're such an idiot.
