Former City Commissioner Tim Smith of Fort Lauderdale has opinions.
He blasts those opinions across the Internet in one of the better Broward websites — Tim Smith’s Fort Lauderdale.
This weekend Smith charged that when he was previously on the bench, judicial candidate Julio Gonzalez ”coddled criminals”.
Gonzalez lost his seat in 2008 and wants it back.
With early voting already underway, having “coddled criminals” is quite a charge.
Smith reprints a dramatic post from four years ago detailing how Gonzalez thwarted efforts to chase criminals and druggies out of a Fort Lauderdale neighborhood.
Interesting story. It is right here.
Meanwhile, Gonzalez is doing no better with his financial reporting than he has done in the past. His latest report gives an address for the loan to the campaign as the defunct firm of scamster Scott Rothstein, where Gonzalez worked for a time:
