The Broward County Commission shot down County Administrator Bertha Henry’s free speech ordinance. Ms. Henry told the packed Commission meeting that she didn’t want to limit free speech; She said they just wanted to know who was protesting. A surly Ilene Lieberman tried to impress the audience with her award-winning knowledge of Constitutional law. Lieberman critiqued the legal arguments of public speakers and had her attorney testify that no one would dare find a constitutional issue with her proposed ordinance. Ms. Lieberman’s performance was met with guffaws instead of “jazz hands”.
Attached is a musical interlude by one of the public speakers complete with “jazz hands”.
