What You Need to Know

  • A candidate in a judicial election could face disciplinary action whether he prevails against his incumbent opponent or not.
  • Any disciplinary action could depend on whether the candidate was aware that his brother’s political action committee sent out a mailer attacking the incumbent.
  • The election is on Aug. 23, but the Miami-Dade Supervisor of Elections has since distributed early and absentee voting ballots.

No one has proven a direct connection between an attorney running for a judgeship on the Miami-Dade Circuit Court bench in the Aug. 23 election and a political action committee supporting his brother.

But the following question has emerged: Did the judicial candidate know about an alleged improper disclosure the PAC made against his political opponent?
