If you have been reading the comments section you know that former candidate for Public Defender Gabriel Martin was suspended on an emergency basis by the Florida Bar. The order allows Mr. Martin to complete his work in a lengthy trial in Broward County, but he is otherwise suspended. The readers have posted links to a Daily Business Review Article. There are allegations about trust account violations in relation to a Title Company Mr. Martin may have been running.
Let us be perfectly clear:
1) We do not know Mr. Martin.
2) We know nothing about the case.
3)We have been otherwise occupied this week and could not devote any time to researching the issue.
4) We posted a comment asking any reader who had more knowledge to email us and we would put the information on the front page.
Unlike the Kennedy assassination that has also had the readers occupied on the comments section, there is no conspiracy by us to cover-up Mr. Martin's suspension.
To paraphrase Richard Millhouse: There is no cover-up and we are not crooks.
There. It's up for the world to read. Have at it.
See you in Court Monday.
Make sure to read our football picks this weekend. We are 9-2 over the last two weeks and hotter than Ms. Nesmith standing in a long line outside the courthouse in August.
Make sure to come to Tobacco Road Monday for what is shaping up as a birthday party and roast of Sy Gaer. There are sure to be more war stories per cubic foot at Tobacco Road Monday night than anyone ever thought possible.
