Pinellas Pasco Group 18 Candidate Judge Greer Exposed
PRWeb ^ | October 27, 2004 | Juan Schoch

Posted on 10/27/2004 2:32:13 AM PDT by Banjoguy

Pinellas Pasco, Group 18, Judicial Candidate George Greer uses a previous quote as if current by the former Florida Supreme Court's Chief Justice Harry Lee Anstead as a political endorsement of himself, in a recent "numbering in the thousands" absentee ballot mailer.

The quote says: "Only those judges who have demonstrated the highest judicial competence and personal character can receive this award, and you have distinguished yourself among the judiciary by having been selected twice to receive this honor ... You are truly a credit to the judicial branch." Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Harry Lee Anstead

At the request of Current Chief Supreme Court Justice Judge Pariente's secretary, Brenda Williams, the illegally used absentee mailer was faxed to the Supreme Court Chief last Friday. A return phone call to a concerned Florida resident, said "thank you very much", this has been "shown around" and "you are encouraged to contact the Judicial Qualifications Committee as we will be also."

Florida Supreme Court Justice Harry Lee Anstead is presiding over a case (SC04-925) which will decide the Constitutionality of the law popularly known as "Terri's Law" (SB 12E / HB 35E, public law 03-418).

Then over the weekend, several television political ads have been running by Pinellas Pasco Judge Greer.

Judge Greer and his legal cronies, along with the Supreme Court of Florida, are a stain on the judicial system of Florida and the country. Not only are they killers, but Judge Greer is a corrupt politician who does not deserve to be judging anyone.

Judge Greer is the incompetent judge who keeps ruling absurdly about Terri Schindler-Schiavo. If you'd like to keep up with it, I'll ping you to some great threads. Just let me know!

SCOFLA: the Supreme Court that didn't know the meaning of the word "seven".

As in "all county returns must be made before 5pm on the seventh day after the election"

I'm kind of surprised to find this article posted here on this late date.

"Florida Supreme Court Justice Harry Lee Anstead is presiding over a case (SC04-925) which will decide the Constitutionality of the law popularly known as "Terri's Law" (SB 12E / HB 35E, public law 03-418)."
The Florida Supreme Court issued its opinion in this case (SC04-925) on September 23 and followed with a corrected opinion in the same case on October 14. It would appear that this article was posted to the web on the 18th of October. Terri's Law was held to be unconstitutional and the Governor's stay was lifted.

The author, Juan Schoch, is hardly an unbiased journalist. To the contrary, he is a Terri Schiavo activist and advocate. He posts here more than frequently on this subject under the screen name "pc93".

It also should be taken into consideration that PR Web is a vanity publisher. Anyone can post virtually anything and it will appear to be a "press release".

Juan Schoch, aka "pc93", hails from Orlando or its immediate surrounds. Hmmm. Don't you also have a tie to Orlando??

I do not know Juan Schoch nor did I know of him until reading this. I happened onto the article while surfing Google links about Greer. However, I though the essay was more about the misuse of political endorsements. I missed the significance of the dates since I was only too happy to post something perjorative regarding Greer.

It also should be taken into consideration that PR Web is a vanity publisher. Anyone can post virtually anything and it will appear to be a "press release".

Well they sure fooled me. (Then again, due to my complete lack of objectivity in the matter of Terri Schiavo, maybe I wanted to be fooled.)

Thanks for your observations.

This incompentent judge has the support of 65 percent of the liberal Pasco-Pinellas county voters. This was once a "conservative" area.

Actually, don't know that your views are a lack of objectivity as much as they are passion after looking into the details of Terri Schiavo's situation. Those who tend to her and those who see her say she most definately responds, incl. that she laughs at her father's jokes. Yet Terri has been quite deliberately misrepresented in court and in the press as being in pain, in a coma, unable to respond (PVS). Inquiring minds want to know why.

There was supposed to be a hearing today on hubby's motion to deny the parents' their appeal rights. Maybe it was postponed.

REMEMBER that Greer ran an illegal election but since any complaint would go to his friends in Tallahassee, there is no point to challenge his election. There were too many violations to go into detail here as you know... Greer relies on other people which is why he can't even run a fair campaign. Greer has no idea what he's doing so he always says "we have already been through this". Does that sound like a Judge or a SLACKER IN A BLACK ROBE TO YOU?

Lol, can of worms ;-)

As far as Greer goes, let's just throw him in a pit with an apple in his mouth.

I was not aware of the disposition of the investigation. I was one of the people who called to report the abuse, and I was really given the run-around. I didn't think they had even done an investigation. Thanks for posting this.

One contributor, (to Greer's campaign) Frank Nagatani is a name that can be tied to the DCF Legal Division which blocked the testimony of a DCF Investigator who produced a report about felony abuse, neglect and exploitation of a disabled adult generated from a 60 day investigation during November and December of 2001. The investigator who was supplied with nearly 800 pages of supportive documents, visited Mrs. Schiavo alone and once with her Mother, Mary Schindler, to "see" for himself that Terri Schindler Schiavo is not in a coma or even close and is very conscious and interacts with not only her mother but others.

The DCF Regional Attorney, Frank Nagatani blocked the subpoenaed testimony of the investigator in Judge Greer's court. Judge Greer acknowledged the existence of "the report". The report was swept under the rug and the abuse, neglect and exploitation (as defined very vividly and supported by many public records), including and as described in Florida Criminal Statutes 825, continues.

As Judge Greer is acknowledging the existence of this report in open court, which qualifies the fact that an investigation was conducted and proves that complaints had been taken by the DCF Adult Protective Services Hotline - Attorney General Crist was on the television telling everyone that no complaints had been received by DCF regarding Terri Schiavo alleging felony abuse, felony neglect and felony exploitation.

Then just 4 months after these denials and attempts to "cover things up", the person who made the hotline complaints (that were investigated, and which produced a report that was acknowledged to exist by Judge Greer in open court) was asked to appear in front of the then Chairwoman of the DCF Oversight Commission, Sandra Murman, with Terri Schiavo's father, Robert Schindler, to talk about the complaints, the investigation, "the report", the actions of Judge Greer and what was thought to be a solution to all of the abuses, negligence and exploitations.

This produced a return phone call that the Chairwoman would not be allowed to speak with the complainant or Mr. Schindler about these matters in the future due to a new confidentiality document she had to sign. More cover-up.

You're absolutely right. Juan is a strong supporter of Terri. You will never catch him reporting from her estranged husband's perspective. You will never catch him replacing facts with misplaced objectivity.

If you did half as much research on Terri as did on her supporters, you'd be one of her supporters.

I visited your site and your editorial-investigative report on Greer was excellent. Due to demands on local Terri supporters, we will be focusing on grassroots boots on the ground activism by the end of the month if Terri's stay is overturned.

If that is how it will be, the satellite trucks will roll in and you will see us all on tv again. fregards, floriduh voter
