I just read this over at the Sun-Sentinel.
When a wave of political corruption investigations hit Broward County a few years ago, it sent a parade of local politicians marching into the courthouse to be arraigned on criminal charges. But some of them have been in no hurry to go to trial.
Many cases have stretched on for years. Of the 14 criminal cases filed against former Broward politicians and their spouses in recent years, there have been six convictions. One case was dismissed but is still under appeal, one case ended with the death of the accused before trial began, and six cases are still pending after a series of delays.
Six convictions, two of which (Sylvia Poitier and Steve Gonot) are mine. With Capellini’s upcoming ass-hammering, that puts me at about 50%.
Don’t fuck with The Genius.
