I am surprised by some of the prominent lawyers giving to Renier Diaz de la Portilla's run for judge. Are the other candidates really that bad?
Here is what one reader said:
outstanding members of the bar willling to lend their name to this six year lawyer with practically NO experience whatsoever practicing law and a very dubious past - 3 years to get into the bar after graduation.
The family holds title to the largest election law violations in the history of Florida - Renier as a school board member - proposed banning Michelle Obama from coming to a public school in Dade - proposed random drug testing of students - then used taxpayer dollars to send a mailing of his school board newsletter to his brother's probable Senate District - great integrity for someone seeking a judicial position. And the FOP has endorsed him.
How many endorsements will he get or checks that are given because Miguel is in the Senate or Alex was - and how many because of the outstanding credentials he brings to this race?
And Resorts World giving to a judicial candidate - really?Here are some lawyers supporting Renier:
Ben Kuehne; Ronald Book; Nelson Diaz,; John Arcia; The Haggard Law firm; Stewart, Tilghman, Fox; Lori Weems; Lydecker, Lee, Berga et al; Asly Darius; Weiss Serota; Michael S. Popok; and of course Resorts World gave $2,000 from 2 different companies. If I didn't like the other judge I wouldn't endorse and lend my name to someone who I "sort of endorse" as the lesser of two evils. Some of the above held fundraisers for Renier.
All I can think of is, these lawyers are looney. If the pretty woman wins, then what? She has some strange backers for a judge as well. I don't know who I would vote for in this race but Renier, he would never get my endorsement. I suppose as the lesser of two evils, we could become the County of beautiful judges...most are. It seems she switched to another race. It is hard to keep up with judges, they switch around to where they think they can win.
