Mark Siegel Democratic Party Chairman | Epstein’s decision to run against Bock “is definitely going to damage Lisa Epstein as the voice of the dispossessed”

“After a prolonged discussion in the lobby with the party chief, Epstein decided to run anyway. She submitted her papers and a $9,272.40 filing fee a mere 62 minutes before Florida’s noon deadline for setting the 2012 ballot.”

Democratic clerk candidate Epstein has also been the focus of much speculation. She opened a campaign in March with a pledge to use the clerk’s office to crack down on robo-signed documents and other suspicious foreclosure paperwork from lending institutions.

But after opening her campaign, Epstein talked with incumbent Bock and Democratic Chairman Siegel about dropping out of the race and working with Bock to weed out fraud. The three had conversations as late as Thursday night before Epstein decided to run and Siegel made a final plea at the elections office.

“We were hoping that they could get together without a primary and make a lot of progress,” said Siegel, who said he was not at the elections office specifically for Epstein but to provide general assistance to Democratic candidates. Siegel said Epstein’s decision to run against Bock “is definitely going to damage Lisa Epstein as the voice of the dispossessed. Now she’s just another candidate for office.”

Epstein said she weighed those arguments, but concluded “I would be remiss in coming this far and then backing away when there has been no measurable response besides an offer to have a collaborative effort on an anti-fraud campaign.”

After filing her paperwork, Epstein phoned Bock from the parking lot at the elections office. Bock said she was disappointed but had been gearing up for an election since Epstein opened her campaign.

“The job of the clerk is a job that is much wider than just the 2 percent of the cases that are in foreclosure,” Bock said. “It’s going to be a very interesting race.”

  1. The incumbent is correct there is more than just the filing of the foreclosure complaint. There is the assignment of the Plaintiff’s credit bid at the Sheriff’s sale which prevents the Sheriff’s Office from collecting two percent poundage from the entire purchase price. There are those foreclosures that do not proceed to sale in order for the Lender to avoid paying real estate taxes and maintaining the property. There are those Defendants who are actively involved in loan modifications whose cases continue to move forward on the docket in violation of HUD guidelines. There are repeated requests for orders of sale and writs of possession which are obtained through the filing of praecipes without an existing Court order justifying the writ or the order of sale. Yes, there is alot more than just the filing of foreclosure complaints.

    I fully support Lisa E for clerk of court.

    I cannot support democrats or republicans. Even the LIbertarian party choice for president is a “wall street crimes holocaust denier.” The 2 and 1/2 party system is a bogus sham.

    Bock admits that 2% fraud is tolerable? The 2% number is a sham and will continue to rise as the implosion continues.

    Vote for the person, NOT the party.

  3. Eugene Villarreal says:

    The Democratic Party like the Republican Party only wants to maintain their status quo and do nothing for the benefit of the public..

  4. Fed up says:

    I despise Democrats and Republicans well … they can eat dog fazoo then die.
    If I was in Lisa’s county I would certainly vote for her without hesitation.
