Shop talk? Should taxpayers foot the bill for Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony’s podcast when it has nothing to do with public safety or law enforcement?
Broward Sore Loser Dale Holness filed paperwork to run for U.S. Congress CD 20 in 2022. The move comes as Holness clogs Florida courts with lawsuits challenging the results of last month’s Democrat primary. Even though he was the overwhelming favorite, Holness lost to political newcomer Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick.
Last week, Team Holness asked judges in Broward and Palm Beach to move the lawsuits to Leon County. It appears as though Holness was unaware Florida law states Leon County has jurisdiction multi-county matters. Amazingly, the Broward and Palm Beach motions (the latter signed by Holness lawyer Burnadette Norris-Weeks) were dated November 30, 2020 instead of 2021.
The legal minds behind Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness laughable maneuvering to overturn the U.S. Congressional District 20 Democrat primary finally realized Broward and Palm Beach counties were not the proper venue for their lawsuit. On Tuesday, Holness’ Broward legal team, Don James and Roshawn Banks, filed a motion to move the case to the Leon County Court in Tallahassee. Holness’ legal eagles finally realized Florida statutes state issues involving an election in more than one county must be heard in Leon County. Late last week, Holness filed lawsuits in Broward and Palm Beach County.
As of Wednesday afternoon, Holness’ attorney in the Palm Beach case, Burnadette Norris-Weeks, had not filed a similar change in venue motion.
Special note for our Margate readers: Even though Team Holness dated the motion November 30, 2020, this is actually the year 2021.
With the case moving to Leon County, perhaps Sun-Sentinel opinion editor Steve Bousquet, aka “Mister Tallahassee,” can provide Broward residents with in-person coverage?
