They just voted Sue Gunzburger the new Broward mayor to replace Ken Keechl. Hey, it was her turn. Commissioner Kristin Jacobs made a very lame motion for Gunzburger, saying that "when each jewel is allowed to shine, the whole crown shines." Yuck. Out with the old, in with the ... More >>

We're supposed to be happy that public officials in Broward are getting a primer on ethics. U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta will pay a visit to the Broward County Commission to stage an ethics tutorial (You had better be taking actual notes, Ritter, not doodles or love letters to a certain lobbyist).

It's never too late to clean up Broward County.
I keed. Vote. It's important. Ralph De La Cruz has an inspirational column about it in the Sun-Sentinel today, but for some reason it's not on the newspaper's web site. So if you don't have the paper, you'll just have to take my word for it. But there's more than just voting happening today -- t ... More >>
