The Fort Lauderdale campaign for mayor is becoming interesting.
A few days ago I was leaked some court documents pertaining to candidate Earl Rynerson.
Rynerson appears to have a history of being involved in litigation over money.
He’s had fights over money with credit card companies. He’s had fights over money with contractors. He’s had fights with landlords.
Many of these suits were dismissed. At least one is active in Broward County Court.
The current suit involves money Rynerson allegedly owes to Bank of America for credit card charges.
Rynerson denies in documents that he owes anything.
A notorious collection firm filed the suit. There are complaints about this firm’s tactics all over the Internet.
So I’m sympathetic to Rynerson.
The court documents include Rynerson’s Bank of America bill. On the bill are charges for gay porn, and that has generated a lot of whispering in this race.
What’s the big deal?
Porn is legal. Rynerson is gay. It’s a non-issue.
You can’t tell anything about Rynerson from a bunch of lawsuits, except he is often involved in lawsuits.
Maybe he is just standing up against injustices.
I tried to get an explanation from Rynerson. He didn’t return my calls, but it is a holiday weekend.
Voters who are interested should ask Rynerson the reason behind these lawsuits. Then they can decide for themselves.
I won’t be one of those voters. I don’t even live in Fort Lauderdale.
