The Miami-Dade Website is reporting: "An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code."

I'm pretty sure this is computer speak for D'Arce sucks.

i just got site up still no changes

Looks like a win for most of the good guys. It might bode well for the future of judicial elections, but my gut tells me its mostly thanks to the bad weather and the lackluster races at the top of the ballot--only those who cared and knew for whom to vote actually voted.
Congrats to Alex Villalobos--proves people appreciate an honest man who does what he believes is right rather than kowtow to the powers that be.

Juan and Ivan; you lose because you think that corruption is alive in dade county. The voters showed you what democracy means

Anonymous said...

A toast to democracy (although I did vote for Ivan)! It really looks like the voters got it right for the most part.

A look at Rumpole's site meter shows that there are lots of people on the blog right now.

pando was a suprise. Marino had some very good promotion. ad's at every bus stop, huge billboards up and down US 1, and more. Plus the neg press against mcwhorter in the herald because of the calculated frivolous lawsuit did her in.

Anonymous said...

McWhorter should strike back for that BS lawsuit and smearing her name at the last minute!!!

Jason Grey said...

Holy Shit, the elections are not being decided merely by race or ethnicity? What county am I in? How can it be? What could it mean?
Help us Rumple, Please.

Schwartz over Mendez 51-49
Schwartz over Llorens 51-49
Cohn over Rippingille 51-49

and Cathy Parks is still trying to figure out who will be her runoff opponent: Mendez over Garcia 30-29.

CAPTAIN OUT ...........

Marino lawsuit was valid. McWhorter's own counsel acknowledged the violations. Blog published some. Palm Bch Judge merely ruled it was for JQC to enforce and not Judiciary. Did not want to undermine voting public by removing from bench. So stop your whining. Herald endorsed McWhorter so what the F are you talking about.
