Broward Sheriff Ken Jenne (of the deceptive CNN Assault Weapons Demo fame) just became the most powerful man in the county. Last election he pushed for the creation of a Strong Mayor position that was to be created with him in mind. Voters defeated the measure. So today the City Commision voted to give him control of Fire-Rescue services under his direction as head of the Broward Sheriffs Office.

Thank God Governor Jeb Bush was in office to prevent that from becoming a law, Janet Reno sure as hell would have signed it.

You people who think you live in "safe" states are indulging in self-deception.

Not sure what you are getting at. I've never felt it couldn't happen here. We've been fighting this kind of crap for years.

According to Jenne, you're about to be placed under the jurisdiction of [b]"the most [i]progressive[/i] public safety organization in history."[/b] Progressive. Now when's the last time ya'll saw that word associated with anything good? [rolleyes] Regardless, let not your heart be troubled. I'm sure something scarier exists...although I can't for the life of me imagine what it might be. cynic

In their comments before voting 8 to 1, commissioners uniformly praised Jenne's ability and character...

That is one majorly fucked up County Commission! [noclue]
...with the bulk of the debate being on how the county would respond if Jenne left the sheriff's office. Commissioner Lori Parrish proposed a clause in the contract allowing the county to dissolve the agreement 90 days after Jenne left office, but that proposal failed. "I don't hate it," Parrish said of the decision, "but if I vote my intellect, I know that public policy should not be based on the strength of character of one official." Jenne said he appreciated the commissioners' confidence in him, adding: "The truth is that Broward Sheriff's Office is a dynamic institution with layers and layers of great administrators." Jenne said the contract's could include escape clauses to make the commissioners more comfortable with the arrangement, but stressed that the agreement would be tied to the office of county sheriff, not to him personally. "It's unfair to my successor, it's unfair to the firefighters," he said. [red]"I'm assuming my successor will be better than I am."[/red]

[img]http://www.pbs.org/newshour/images/politics/jan-june01/reno8.jpg[/img] On behalf of all conservative Floridians, I'd like to apologize to the rest of the nation for having produced and foisted upon you the earthquake-imitating, baby-burning, gun-grabbing, child-imprisoning WHORE pictured above. May God forgive me, but I hate that bitch more than anyone on the planet. At least Osama is a foreigner. This putrid *unt screwed over her own countrymen.... [pissed]

I got news for ya, get one more Moose and you could make a Idiot Oreo. Politically he's a moron. First he alienated liberals by raiding a private swing club and arrested everyone inside. Two local teachers lost their jobs for having sex with each other in the club, they were married. Then he alientated conservatives by requesting Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Florida State Rep and Broward County School Board member, who is herself a high school dropout who later got a "honorary" college degree) propose the Broward County Assault Weapon Ban. Everyone hates this POS, but somehow he keeps getting newer and more powerful positions of authority. He is a Sheriff who has never served a single day as a LE officer of any kind. For years he created a local machine gun ban by refusing to sign any Form 4s. Several people hit his office with a class action suit last year and he stated signing. However, he couldn't sign personally since he is not and never has been a sworn officer. He currently has a adjutent in his office sign the Form 4s.

I keep wondering when this asshole's political ambitions are going to get bigger than Broward County so we can move him out of here. Either that, or one of the last remaining deputies under him will "do the right thing..."
