Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

How much longer will that entry at Wikipedia for Dave Aronberg exist? He's running for Palm Beach State Attorney, so why the Chicago-style tactics against sitting judge?

How much longer will there be an entry at Wikipedia for Dave Aronberg, who's running for Palm Beach State Attorney? Chicago-style tactics against a sitting judge?

As it happen, I voted for Dave Aronberg in the 2010 Democratic primary for Florida Attorney General race against Dan Gelber, and then voted for eventual winner Pam Bondi that November in the general election, owing to both my liking of Bondi's moxie and my distaste for Gelber, whom I've ripped here previously a few times, not least for the company he keeps and his propensity to be a perpetual candidate..

That said, though, why is there an entry for someone like Aronberg who's largely unknown outside of certain activist/news junkie neighborhoods in South Florida?
I mean he's more obscure than some of the most obscure Dolphin players. 
Plus, much of the information there is NOT accurate or timely.

Additionally, it seems to me that per the Palm Beach Post story below, his friends are doing him no favors by acting like they are Rahm clones and trying to put the screws to a sitting judge to force her not to run against him. 

I've lived in Chicago, and this isn't it, and neither is Palm Beach County.
It's hard for me to see how this sort of incident or similar ones in the future won't backfire on Aronberg in ways that he never anticipated.
