Broward County Circuit Court candidate Lea Krauss keeps kissing up to Broward Democrats. Normally, one would expect a candidate to rub elbows and snap selfies with Broward Democrat insiders. But candidates seeking a seat on the Broward bench play by different rules.
Judicial candidates usually avoid purely partisan events unless all other judicial candidates are invited. Even then, judicial candidates excuse themselves before any partisan business begins. Last month, REDBROWARD revealed how Krauss’ kissing up to local pols brought her into contact with some of Broward’s scandal-plagued politicians.
Krauss bragged about her 150 endorsements from politicians and lobbyists like Steve Geller and former Congressman Larry Smith.
In June, REDBROWARD exposed the role Broward “political pimp” Vincente Thrower played in Krauss’ ill-fated fundraiser at a Fort Lauderdale “breastaurant.”
In Facebook posts this week, Krauss exposed her attendance at the Hollywood Hills Democratic Club Holiday Party.
The Club invited called the meeting a “kick off for the 2016 election” with Broward “celebrity public defender” Howard Finkelstein. There was a $7 admission charge to attend the party at the Orangebrook County Club.
On Facebook, Krauss posted she had attended a “joyous Hollywood Hills holiday party.” Krauss left of the “Democratic Club.” But the pictures she posted is filled with Democratic politicians and officials.
Krauss is all smiles with former Democrat State Rep. Elaine Schwartz. She’s grinning ear-to-ear with Broward (Democrat) County Commissioner Beam Furr. And Krauss definitely has the holiday spirit in a picture with Broward Democrat Party Chair Cynthia Busch and party director Travis Perron.
Krauss doesn’t seem the least bit concerned about running in these tight political circles.
Broward voters may have a different opinion.
