Courts are suppose to be non-political.
Often they don’t live up to that goal. Especially when the election is less than two months away.
Take Brenda Di Ioia, who is running against a sitting judge and a former judge for Broward County Court.
Di Ioia was dumped as chief traffic court hearing officer over the holiday weekend– a courthouse job she has held for over two decades.
Di Ioia supporters are yelling “politics.” They claim that she was targeted by the courthouse establishment because she challenged sitting judge – County Court Judge Nina Di Pietro.
The third candidate in the race is former County Judge Ian Richards.
Disclosure: Brenda Di Ioia has been advertising her campaign for County Court Judge, Group 7, on South Florida Reporter.
