Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

What do you have to hide Mary Brandenburg?

From the Palm Beach Post-

WEST PALM BEACH — Despite the end of the legislative session and mayoral race, state Rep. Mary Brandenburg and at least one other person mentioned in a sealed grand jury report on "pay to play" city politics are pursuing legal efforts to keep the sections referring to them secret.

Chief Circuit Judge Kathleen Kroll on Monday received a new motion to repress or expunge a section of the report. Also, a person she would not identify has asked that a circuit court case file number be assigned in order to appeal an earlier order by Kroll unsealing the report, she said.

It is unclear whether the same person made both the motion and the request for a file number. Brandenburg's lawyer said he did not request the file number.

Because of state grand jury secrecy rules, the judge declined to comment in detail or to say who filed which motions or appeals.

Brandenburg, D-West Palm Beach, has acknowledged a monthslong battle to keep her name out of the report, which was issued Feb. 2. In April, she said she wanted to at least delay its release while she was in Tallahassee during the legislative session.

The session ended May 4, but she and her attorney, Don Pickett, confirmed that they have not dropped the effort and are awaiting a decision from Kroll.
Why would a politician want a grand jury report sealed? I thought from the beginning the legislative excuse was bogus, and this confirms it. The report probably tells that Brandenburg is just another crooked Palm Beach County politician who trades influence for money. There just isn't enough evidence YET to indict. Otherwise why Mary are you fighting so hard to keep the report secret? If you got nothing to hide, you got nothing to worry about.
