LaMarca to Broward Commission: Your "Reign of Corruption Is Over"
Very busy this morning, but here's a videotape of former Broward GOP Chief Chip LaMarca's speech declaring his candidacy against Broward County Mayor Ken Keechl. I'll come back with commentary a little later. LaMarca is striking a populist tone -- and it has resonance: "If you're... tired of reading the tales of corruption in the blogs and the news media day after day, then join me... help me, help me drain this swamp."
Good words, and we know enough about Keechl to see that he's a self-serving and flip-flopping fellow who isn't fit for office. But what about Chip? Who is he? We'll just have to find out.
