"Its evil look brings madness! Its evil spell enslaves!"
In my opinion, based on what Buddy Nevins has forthrightly described in his Wednesday BrowardBeat column, below, Broward County Commissioner Ilene Lieberman won't stop selling her office's influence to the highest bidder 'till she's in prison shackles.
Sadly, it's that simple, and it's about time the statute of limitations ended for all of her many apologists in the South Florida community, including certain media members, who, for reasons that nobody can honestly explain, still keep giving her the benefit of the doubt.
Enough with the excuses already!
Sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar, and Lieberman is exactly what she looks like: an unrepentant offender of the community's ethos, which is really saying something for how low we actually are now -and how much lower she will go.
If we were Amish, perhaps we could simply shame Lieberman or shun her or banish her, but... well, we're not Amish.
I am SO going to be in the front row of the Commission Chamber for that meeting!
And so are dozens of South Florida civic activists and bloggers. But will South Florida's news media actually leave their air-conditioned offices and show-up?
Or what about lawyer/lobbyist Steve Geller, who'd per$onally benefit from what Ilene Liberman's trying to do?
Hmm-m-m... now that's a question!
Outrage: Commissioners To Debate Gutting Ethics Reform

Can the ethically challenged Broward County Commission sink any lower?
Commissioners will consider next week a set of amendments to gut proposed ethics reform.
The amendments are supposedly authored by the county attorney’s office. I see the hand of Commissioner Ilene Lieberman in this.
Lieberman has consistently argued against ethics reform. She has been accused in the past of using the county attorney’s office to further her aims of derailing any new ethics laws.To read the rest of the post:
