Silent But Deadly Has a Challenger!
I saw some excellent news in the corrupt local government propaganda rag, otherwise known as the Key West Citizen. A candidate has filed to run against David Rice! Of course, you can’t believe everything you read in the Citizen. After … Continue reading
Madok Campaign Contributions
I downloaded Kevin Madok’s campaign contributions from the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections website. As you’ll recall Madok won the hotly contested race for Clerk of Court. He narrowly beat incumbent Amy Heavilin in the Republican primary and Democrat Ron Saunders … Continue reading
What Happened to the Strategic Planning Department?
Update 3: George Neugent isn’t the only county commissioner to have a run-in with the ethics commission. Since this post was written, all five commissioners, including the “ever-so-proper” Danny Kolhage have been fined for ethics violations related to their financial … Continue reading
Best Thing I’ve Read About the Recount
Update: Here’s an article about regularly auditing election results. Very sensible, no matter where you stand politically. It’s a little surprising we don’t already do this. How you feel about Jill Stein’s request for a recount probably depends on which … Continue reading

Problematic Editorial From Reporter/Keynoter
You don’t hit a home run every time you’re at bat that’s for sure. The Reporter published an editorial with their recommendations for the November 8 election. Not their best work. They recommended Sue Heim and Steve Gibbs for the Key … Continue reading
Madok’s Resume Lie
I was recently reminded of something that happened when Kevin Madok ran for Clerk of Court in 2012**. Madok’s opponent, Matt Gardi, pointed out that Madok wasn’t actually a licensed Certified Public Accountant (CPA), though he did use that designation … Continue reading
Election Day Zen
Tomorrow, Monroe County voters will choose their District 5 county commissioner and they will choose which Republican candidate for Clerk of Court goes on to run in the general election. I’m no longer a Monroe County resident so I don’t … Continue reading
