THE PDS HAVE ARRIVED!!!

THE PDS HAVE ARRIVED!!

“you dui lawyers are funny.”

Rumpole replies: That’s because they do all their drinking at home and then log on to our humble site. But as we have seen in a previous post, there is a danger to drinking and blogging.

“tidy up retirement? a place for a drunk to get a new start. are you f***ing (edited by Rumpole) joking? that can't be what the office is all about all about these days. i guess times have changed. the current administration has lived of the lorals of the old gaurd for much to long. anyone with a sense of history understands that brummer was never well regarded by the GREATS(n) ie the original ten. he was the only guy who wanted the job back then. and make no mistake about it, a trial is not a word that benny b is comfortable using. the kid should have held out for 500k.rumpole come back to the dark side”



Rumpole Replies: You have been reading Brummer Bummer. Welcome to the site. Better late than never. By the way, in case you haven’t heard, Bush nipped Gore in a close one. As to Brummer, there were two compelling sides to the story. As we have previously said, BHB (someone e mailed us that those were his initials) deserved to get zinged for his conduct. He has also served for many many years producing great lawyers who give indigent clients a great defense. He deserved to have us recognize his accomplishments as well.

There is no “dark side” of Rumpole. We are not out to ruin or maliciously hurt anyone. However, hypocrisy will be outed. Self important dodos can expect to get put through the ringer. What we really seek is a great discussion of the issues of our building.

PS: Did you go to public school with Jason Grey? You can’t spell “laurels” or “guard” but have no problem with spelling “fucking”.


Another Reader, either late to the Blog, or just a very thoughtful old chap, also saw fit to comment on La Affair Du Brummer:

Why is everyone giving Brumm a hard time? Even though he's basically worthless, who else (besides some idiotic 20somethings) would want to deal with a bunch of lazy gov't pissants?

Rumpole Replies:

Brummer is an elected public official. He is held to the highest of standards. He fired a PD for working on the other guy’s election and got caught with his hand on the trap door lever. He was sued and we tax payers paid the bill. He has been treated fairly in this arena.


OK. Now we get it. The PD’s have found the Blog!!!! Better late than never we say. Welcome, PDs. And get Mr. Stein to respond to our challenge. What did we write that was incorrect? Mr. Anonymous, who also appears to have signed his name wrote:

I GIVE MY BOSS A BREAK! HE IS A GREAT LEADER WITH SOLOMONIC INSTINCT. PLUS, WERE IT NOT FOR HIM, GREAT LAWYERS SUCH AS , RORY S. , CARLOS M. , C. DAVID WEED , BECKY COX, ETC... WOULD NOT BE WHAT THEY ARE TODAY. THE BEST OF THE BEST...LEAVE BRUMMER ALONE!! WARREN S.


That crash you heard was us falling out of our chair. Could this be the great, wise, respected Warren Schwartz? The Ben Franklin of Felonies? This barely made it past our censors, as we are suspicious it could be someone writing as Mr. Schwartz. The posting was done anonymously. However, hoping against hope, there is joy in Mudville. As the Casey of The Courthouse, a real heavy hitter is reading our blog. We have arrived at last!

THERE IS NO QUESTION WARREN SCHWARTZ DID NOT ACTUALLY WRITE THAT COMMENT - IT WAS POSTED AT 12:30 P.M. AND WE IN THE OFFICE ALL KNOW HE LEAVES BY 11 AM.

Rump I think what you got wrong is that Mr. Stein doesnt like danish as he is partial to muffins

Pd's you who are the self righteous who lecture all of us who sold out for big bucks. You are the ones who always talk as if you are the ones doing gods work by defending the poor and the wretched. You who endlessly lecture the rest of us sell outs on the importance of the constitution. How can any of you possibly defend what Brummer did here? His actions were buffoonish even by the low standards we have come to expect from elected officials in South Florida.
I agree with the post who said the kid should have held out for more cash. Just having a trial would have exposed all the nonsense that goes on in that office. We would have learned about the Chicago Machine/Tammany Hall style fundraising tactics In which some lawyers who shall remain nameless go around the office collecting campaign checks with a vigor that would make Tony Soprano proud. We also might have learned that BHB was so worried that he might lose a year before election he gave large raises to his crossword loving danish eating higherups so that they would get bigger pensions and sick leave payouts if they got fired by the new regime.

Come on will some current pd or ex-pd like me back me up on this? Or are YOU all the real sellouts?

I still work in the Pd's office.(Yes, I Know, but its just too easy to stay) I can say with certainty that the kid, Gabe Martin and his band of troublemakers (and self-glorifiers), received more votes within the office than BB did. It just that if you come out openly and oppose the guy, you'll be screwed. Every single one of Martin's supporters was demoted, fired, or strongly forced out. And now look at what they are doing to ol' Carol Ferraro. All b/c she refused to lie for BB under oath during the investigation into the various campaign crimes (yes, crimes) committed by BB and his banana republic apparatchiks.For Rumpole to say the kid, Lonnie Richardson, was "traiterous" b/c he opposed his boss is pathetic. Take a stand against cronyism, apathy, and straight-up corruption, and you're a "traitor"?To what? Sure, there were certain elements in the insurgency that seemed to be in it purely for kicks, and if they got lucky, easy $. But overall, it would have been simple justice for BB and Weed and Stein (who prefers bagels with his 11 am juice)and all the rest of these welfare cheats to lose to the young rogues. Message to BB: if you insist on running again in '08 , and you get opposition, '04 will seem like a walk. Some folks will not be truly sated until you're doing the perp walk at 11 on Fox 7. And you know the info is out there.

brummer will have democratic opposition in '08. the kid should have run as a democrat in '04
instead he tried to play ethnic
politics by running as a Cuban
Republican.

the head PD has got to be a Democrat - you just can't win
otherwise.

any takers for '08?

from the likes of these comments,
it sounds like you've got a built in base of support.
