In the nineties it was a Democratic controlled Supreme Court who allowed local government to create special taxing districts for beautification projects. People's votes were set aside for special interest groups. I am pretty familiar with what was going on the local ground when that court case went through. The way I see it, it was a favor for a favor.

Be sure you select judges that have absolutely nothing to do with Florida's backwater good ole boy community, or this state will not move forward.
