Lobbyists and companies with business before the Broward County Commission have poured thousands of dollars into Ilene Lieberman’s campaign for county judge. Many say Lieberman,currently a Broward County Commissioner, is a professional politician and a novice attorney. Her opponent, Katherine “Katie” McHugh is an experienced trial lawyer. Lieberman touts her experience with the political process at judicial forums.
Lieberman (D-Catlady) received contributions from construction firms, All-Star Toilets, garbage firms, janitorial companies, the Florida Panthers and companies doing business at the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport.
Don’t worry, Ilene is speading the money around. She paid her neighbor $1000 to build a website for the campaign.
Ilene Lieberman’s six cats were unavailable for comment.
Over at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Brittany Wallman just posted a story about Ilene Lieberman (D-Mango) and her six cats. What are they names? Get ready: Duke Ellington Michelson, Ella Fitzgerald Michelson, Jackie Wilson Michelson, Ringo Starr Michelson, Jimmy Dorsey Michelson, Jessica Michelson.
It gets better. Apparently, Ilene has a room dedicated to her cats, “Lieberman and her husband, Stuart Michelson, have a cat room in their house, with a special staircase for the cats to climb on, and a bunk bed, as well.”
And even better, Lieberman brags to Wallman, “‘At one point, we had 12 feral cats that we adopted,'”.
What’s next? A peek inside Ilene’s Mango cave complete with monitors to observe those dastardly mango thieves? We can only hope.
