As the raging national debate over abortion was starting to engulf the Florida Supreme Court last January, now-Chief Justice Carlos Muniz personally led a private courthouse tour for an anti-abortion crusader and his supporters.
The tour taken by John Stemberger and members of his Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC) is attracting much behind-the-scenes attention at the state’s most powerful court.
Lawyers and others have flooded the court’s communication office with public record requests for information about the Jan. 25 tour – photos, emails, calendars, chats – according to a court employee who spoke with Florida Bulldog on condition of anonymity.
“There’s a lot of scrambling going on upstairs,” said the employee, who fears getting fired if identified. “It feels spooky around here right now. Everyone is tense.”
