BREAKING | A Crime is NOT a Crime if it takes Less than a Minute – State Investigators Clear Supreme Justices of Wrongdoing

“It appears that the practice of using staff members to notarize campaign and other documents is common practice throughout the State and is done solely as a matter of convenience”


I’m no fan of Scott, but the law is the law, isn’t it?


State investigators clear justices of wrongdoing, Scott not pleased

Three Florida Supreme Court justices did not break the law when they used court staff to notarize campaign documents, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement decided.

But the matter is not settled. Justices Barbara Pariente, Peggy Quince and Fred Lewis, up for merit retention, now have to fend off a lawsuit seeking to strip them off the November ballot.

Gov. Rick Scott directed FDLE to investigate the issue last month after state Rep. Scott Plakon, R-Longwood, steered the governor to a state election law prohibiting candidates from using state employees who are on the clock for campaign work.

Leon County State Attorney Willie Meggs found the judges apparently violated the law, but noted in a letter to FDLE that the notarization took less than a minute.

“It is well established that the law does not concern itself with trifles. In general, there is no prohibition against a notary employed by the state, notarizing a document for their boss, or even as a public service to the citizenry,” Meggs, a Democrat, wrote to FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey this week.

FDLE investigators agreed.

Just like it has been the standard “practice” of the financial industry to illegally steal homes, it is now okay to break long standing laws regarding elections just as long as it’s convenient…

It’s the industry standard, right?

And this is why we fight…

You can check out the full article from the PB Post here…

More than $450,000 was raised for the justices in the first three months of the year…

Guess where those funds came from…

We know of a few “fundraisers” that, in another world, would seem totally unethical.

But hey, this is Amerika!

Copy of the lawsuit below…

Which laws can you break in under a minute?

Don’t worry, it’s not a crime if you beat the time…

    Hmmm, ok then, if I rob a bank in less than a minute, it must be ok, right?? Oh that’s right, the banks legislators write the laws, so they must not have a time limit on that one.

    Sorry, this was a political complaint, with little legal foundation. Florida Statute 117 allows employees to notarize their bosses signatures. This is not against the law. Focus people, there are notarization and signature crimes, but these were not them.

    Since there IS a merit retention system, maybe the foreclosure comunity can ask the judges stright questions, support the judges who defend civil and property rights, work against judges who rubber stamp by PCA or who excuse bank wrong doing.

    Do you not think the banking industry has not figured out which judges are on their side and which are not. Do you think the banking industry is not lending as much financial and other support to the judges it favors, or more precisely, in a merit retention system, funding the campaigns to get judges they don’t like off the bench?

    Complaining about the judges on the courts, after the ‘non partisan’ elections to dethrone home owner friendly judges, will be too late. Do you know who is on your side and who is not? Who will you vote to unseat or retain, and why?

      Where they justices performing the duties of their office? NO.
      So for the purpose of these documents the justices are not “their boss” . They are ordinary citizens.
      The problem is that notarization are done on behalf of the state. State’s recognize notaries nothing more.

      So when the people involved notarized the documents they where not in the employ of the state.
