Four Broward Candidates’ Ethically Questionable Ads

Four Broward lawyers running for judge could end up in trouble for appearing to violate state Code of Ethics for judicial candidates.

A flyer distributed by A Better Florida For All promotes the four judicial candidates along with partisan candidates such as Andrew Gillum, Bill Nelsonand Alcee Hastings.

Partisan appeals judicial candidates’ ads are forbidden by the Florida Supreme Court Code of Judicial Conduct. Joint advertising by judicial candidates is also prohibited.

The Broward candidates who appear to be violating the Code of Ethics are:

  • Stefanie Moon
  • H. James Curry
  • Tanner Channing Demmery
  • Jackie Powell

The ad for the four judicial candidates is aimed at Democrats. It is blue in color and not only promotes Gillum, Nelson and Hastings, but other Democrats.

Who is ultimately behind this misleading and potentially unethical ad?
