The deadline for filing for judicial seats and several other elected positions is this Friday.
Stories are legion of the flights to Tallahassee on the deadline filing day; of scuffles in the hallways and political consultants physically blocking the door to the office where the filings are due.
How many of our robed readers are sleeping well this week? How many have refilled their Ambien prescription? Stay tuned as we and El Capitan will be proving up to the minute campaign coverage.
Coming soon: Bondsman, corrections and dirty attorneys- the open secret that nobody wants to do anything about.
And a special federal court update: "A Shaygan Shame."
Enjoy the week. See You In Court.
