Holy Dancing Salami! Did Stacy Ritter Team Up With Judy Stern?

Did Broward’s favorite dancing commissioner just enlist the aid of uber-lobbyist and salami sandwich doyenne Judy Stern? Tipsters told us about a recent luncheon for Stacy Ritter (D-Booby Trap) hosted by Stern, but Ritter’s latest campaign report offers more proof.

Ritter paid $8000 to The Kitchens Group for “polling and research”. Another Stern favorite, Fl State Rep Joe Gibbons (D-Jacksonville) paid $5,500 to The Kitchens Group. Gibbons paid Judy $4,694.90; Damn the price of salami has really gone up. Heck, Julio Gonzalez only paid Judy $3,575.

Back in 2008, Democrat Sheriff Candidate Scott Israel (D-Former Republican) enlisted The Kitchen Group at the behest of his consultant…Judy Stern. Broward Beat covered the lawsuit filed by Kitchens against Scott Israel:

“Israel told Kitchen that the bill was the responsibility of his former campaign manager Judy Stern, who often works with the Kitchens Group.

‘The law says the candidate is the agent for the campaign. The candidate is responsible,’ Kitchen said.

‘I have no comment,’ Israel said. ‘It’s in litigation and there are a plethora of issues. Obviously, I believe I acted honorably and honestly as I always do.’”

Ken Keechl Tells Stacy Ritter & Nick Steffens: “You Are Both Scary”


On Friday we told you about Broward Commissioner Stacy Ritter’s (D-Booby Trap) Facebook post to Broward School Board candidate Nick Steffens. Ritter told the much younger Steffens’ “Hey, I could hook you up and it will be loose.” Steffens was “afraid” to ask what Ritter meant by the comment.

Ken Keechl, Ritter’s former fellow Broward County Commissioner, has chimed in on the odd Facebook thread. Keechl posted, “You are both scary.”

Steffens posts that Ritter is his “biggest fan”. Voters can comment on Steffens and Keechl this Tuesday at their local polling place.

Voters get their turn with Ritter in November.

Winter is coming…
