Morning Juice: Crist Veto May Signal Indy Run; Life for Killer in Sunrise
A glance through the Friday-morning headlines:
- Charlie Crist's veto of Senate Bill 6 has touched off conflict with fellow state Republicans, leading to more speculation that Crist will declare as an independent in the race for U.S. Senate. [Sun-Sentinel]
- The tea partiers did their tax-day thing outside federal buildings in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. All the usual pageantry: signs warning of socialism, costumes, etc. [WSVN-7]
- Broward County Public Defender Howard Finkelstein has bolted from a county courthouse task force, claiming that he's lost faith in the integrity of the contracting process for the $328 million project. [Broward Bulldog]
- John Liebro, a 32-year-old Sunrise man convicted in the love-triangle murder of a 24-year-old woman in 2007, has been sentenced to life in prison. [Palm Beach Post]
- The Florida Senate approved the Seminole gambling bill, which now needs only a yes-vote from the House to make its way to Crist's desk for a signature. We've had two other compacts fail, but maybe the third time's the charm. [Sun-Sentinel]
- It's been a rough April for Miss February 1992. Tanya Beyer, a former Playboy Playmate, was busted for doctor-shopping for prescription drugs in Palm Beach County, leading to a decidedly unglamorous court appearance. [Palm Beach Post]
