Tuesday's South Florida headlines:
- The feds who filed corruption charges against Broward Vice Mayor Josephus Eggelletion are taking a closer look at GOLF, the nonprofit through which he allegedly took bribes. But for those who were hoping to learn "squat" about the organization's finances, bad news: the accountant told your local daily, "I'm not telling you squat." [Sun-Sentinel]
- Chad Pennington's gone for the year with a dislocated shoulder, and Tim Tebow's status is still unknown, following the worst weekend for Florida quarterbacks... ever? [Miami Herald]
- Developers are applying to build nearly 1,600 new homes in Palm Beach County. But wouldn't it be easier to just build one insane asylum for the developers and the government officials who would approve those requests? [Palm Beach Post]
- In Pahokee, the job of alerting police to an attempted murder-suicide fell to a three-year-old, who with his one-year-old brother watched his father shoot his mother. [CBS12]
- In Sunrise, police say that Quincy Kelly killed his wife Lisa and 13-year-old daughter Soroya before turning the gun on himself. [WSVN]
- In this week's episode of Unfrozen Cave Man Lawyer, John Michael Moody of Wilton Manors gets disbarred for groping a flight attendant, using profane language, and carrying a 7-year-old child down the aisle while the seatbelt sign was illuminated. The Florida Bar apparently could not be swayed by the "I'm just a cave man..." defense. [Miami Herald] For my fellow Phil Hartman fans, Cave Man video after the jump.
