Let Irv Continue to Serve

September 1, 2006

To cast your vote to elect Irv Slosberg to State Senator in District 30 it’s not necessary to dislike, demean, belittle, or generally badmouth his opponent.
All that’s necessary is to look at the past 6 years of Irv’s record of serving his constituency in District 90.
What you will find is a guy who did his job more than well. He did it with a passion. You will find a guy who likes to do whats best for his constituency and doesn’t much care about personal gain or reward for himself.
Irv is being forced out of his Representative 90 seat not by an unhappy constituency, but by Florida’s law on term limits. He cannot seek re-election to his current seat. He has served the maximum permitted term.  If he is to continue to serve, he must do it from another legislative seat. The one he has chosen to run for is Senate District 30 — vacated by another guy, Ron Klein, who is also forced to “move on” by the term limit statute. In this Senate District Irv will be serving the same people as before. He will just be adding some new soon-to-be happy-with-Irv constituents.
I am not attacking term limits. It is the same statute that is ridding us of Jeb Bush. I am suggesting that just because we have to abide by those term limits, we should not be fooled into thinking Irv Slosberg did anything but a great job for us for the last 6 years.
That should naturally lead to our vote to Let Irv Continue to Serve.

Lauderdale Swiftboaters HQ Found

August 27, 2006

This is the HQ of Florida Residents for Responsible and Responsive Government, Inc., the character assassin outfit that has been attacking Irv Slosberg. Its a mail drop in Ft. Lauderdale.  Suite #1077 is Box #1077.

Now the question is WHO are these folks? Are they paid for by Ted Deutch’s Republican lawfirm or are they associates found by Ted’s new TV commercial buddy Congressman Robert Wexler while wandering through the halls of Congress where money and secrets change hands every day?  Or are they just a bunch of caring citizens residing in Florida State Senate District 25, Florida House District 91, neither of which has anything to do with Irv Slosberg — currently serving in FL House District 90 and running for FL Senate District 30?

 

Lauderdale Swiftboaters: “Fire Slosberg Torpedo #2”

August 24, 2006

Anti-Slosberg salvo number two from the “Florida Residents for Responsible and Responsive Government, Inc.”, the Ft. Lauderdale (Florida Senatorial District 25 – NOT the district where Irv is running.) based hatchet outfit.
Right out of the Rove handbook on destroying your enemy while offering no real candidate, this bunch of paid operatives remain mysterious.
The news media seems content to ignore things like this to make room for Jon Benet and friends.
The latest mailer in my Boca mail box today. No positives at all — Just slime Irv with unsupported charges.
Get with it main stream media. Who are these political assassins. Where does the money come from?

Ft. Lauderdale Swiftboaters against Slosberg

August 23, 2006

The latest attack on Irv Slosberg comes from the Florida Residents for Responsible and Responsive Government, Inc. in a mailer out today in Boca Raton.
You might ask, “Who exactly are they?”
You might find that they are not exactly who you think they might be.
As starters, their address is outside Senate District 30 where Irv is customarily attacked by the Wexler/Aaronson/Deutch Cabal. They are in Ft. Lauderdale, Senate District 25.
Though this piece of election trash is not attributed to the Deutch campaign the material and allegations are strikingly similar with their usual campaign — we have nothing to offer, lets attack Irv.
Obviously the above mentioned triumvirate does not wish to be OFFICIALLY or PUBLICLY associated with this bunch. Their campaign is not mentioned and they probably have the pre-printed denials standing by.
But one might ask who funds this bunch of concerned citizens? Why do they care so much about sullying the reputation of a candidate in another district?
Lets go news media. Dig in. Find and report the facts. Follow the money.

Voice of Truth-August 17, 2006

State Senate District 30 will have on the ballot State Representative Irv Slosberg who has 6 years of proven service to his constituency. His opponent, Ted Deutch is an attorney with no legislative experience. In fact the race has 2 other people who are operating in the shadows.

They are Congressman Robert Wexler and Palm Beach County Commissioner Burt Aaronson. Their job is to use all their influence to beat Irv Slosberg. Why?? The reason is obvious.

They are the power brokers and Irv Slosberg will not play ball with them. Representative Slosberg wants to put all his energy into actually serving his constituency. He does it to a fault and that is why Congressman Wexler and Commissioner Aaronson are seeking to unseat him.

They are working with the premise that Yes! — You can fool all of the people some of the time, and if you lie big enough and often enough you can win elections.

Translated, “Screw the People”, and they are good at it. Ted Deutch is the pawn who’s job is to be their lackey — and he will do a good job of that.

Dr. Who? Dr. Why? Dr. How?

August 16, 2006

Arthur W. Anderson, Ph.D. is the Supervisor of Elections for Palm Beach County, FL. I think it fair to describe him as an unremarkable person who is likable and competent in his job. So why devote an entire post to him? I will first off state that there is absolutely no suggestion on my part that Dr. Anderson is involved in any political shenanigans. About the worst thing you can say about his performance is that he is yet to deliver the paper trail he promised in the campaign, but he hasn’t yet finished “studying the options”. How quickly they learn.

The same cannot be said for his predecessor’s reign.

Cruella De Vil or Madame Butterfly to some, Theresa LePore achieved national prominence for her stewardship of running the Supervisor’s Office pre-Anderson, and the percieved need to replace her resulted in Dr. Anderson’s election. Ms. Lepore’s story of switching political parties when convenient and abandoning them all when necessary is scarily similar to the current saga up the coast in CT.

“Why” Arthur Anderson rather than Sam Citizen is vague and probably not of prime importance.

“How” provides the basis for understanding politics in The Land of the Hanging Chad.

Robert Wexler, current U.S. Representative for District 19 in South Florida took up the Democratic banner and in essence got LePore out — hence Anderson in. Naturally Congressman Wexler (who casts his Congressional votes the way I wish him to about 98% of the time) had some considerable help in this effort from other political power figures including but not limited to County Commissioner Burt Aaronson, and even several appearances in support of the “out with LePore” cause by, you guessed it, “Our Joey”, the former Vice Presidential Nominee and current Senator from CT, now involved in switching some party affiliations himself . . . And so the beat goes on.

Currently the Wexler/Aaronson team is together again and waging war with my guy, State Representative Irving Slosberg who is term limited out of his Florida House seat and is running for State Senate in District 30 which includes his old congressional district and expands his constituency.

Irv is running on his record. The Wexler/Aaronson guy, a first time political candidate is running “against Irv”.

It’s sort of the same team with an unremarkable, likable — we have no idea if he would be a competent legislator — fellow by the name of Ted Deutch taking over the Arthur Anderson role. And the beat goes on . . . and on . . .
