I was up rather late yesterday evening and my mind kept returning to the poetic justice and Twilight Zone like ballot of Broward County. Ms. Levey Cohen ran under the name Levey because she lost a race under the name Cohen. By all accounts, she ran against a new and qualified Judge, Pedro Dijols because of the propensity for candidates with Hispanic sounding last names to lose in Broward. And because of the twists and turns in the election she is left to bear the "burden" of actually being forced to run under Pedro Dijols's name. There is no more time to change the ballot. Voters will be given a hand-out at the polls informing them that a vote for Dijols is actually a vote for Levey.
So Mardi Levey-Cohen is being forced to run under the name she by all accounts specifically choose to run against because she thought people would be biased against that name. If I were a Judge I could not come up with a better sentence for a person with such crass motives.
Poetic justice. Karma. Whatever you call it, a candidate by any other name does not smell as sweet, does it Ms. Levey-Cohen?
