Katherine Harris's Car Trouble
Cops: Florida man tried to run down controversial Republican
OCTOBER 27--A Florida man has been charged with attempting to run over controversial Republican congresswoman Katherine Harris with his Cadillac. According to the below Sarasota Police Department report, Barry Seltzer, 46, told cops that he was simply exercising his "political expression" when he drove his car at Harris and several supporters, who were campaigning last night at a Sarasota intersection. Seltzer--pictured at right in a booking photo--allegedly drove up on a sidewalk and headed directly for Harris before swerving "at the last minute." Harris told officers that "she was afraid for her life and could not move as the vehicle approached her," according to the report. For his part, Seltzer--who's a registered Democrat--told cops, "I intimidated them with the car. They were standing in the street." He added, "I did not run them down, I scared them a little!" That explanation did not stop investigators from arresting Seltzer for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony. Harris, Florida's former secretary of state, is best known for her role in the aftermath of the state's disastrous 2000 presidential election.
Picture of this idiot is at thesmokinggun.com.
The thug in question.
Harris is a Congresswoman and this was an attempted assasination.
They need to cut the crap and tell it like it is.
Wow, they have a law for just about everything!
This shitbird needs to be charged with attempted murder.
Kartherine Harris just happens to be a member of the House of Represenatives and Congress..it seems to me the man responsible admitted what he was doing and should be charged with murder. There is no question about it!
The media is beneath contempt.
Expect higher turnout for Bush.
My point is how the media colors perception by their choice of words. For example, Al Sharpton is directly linked to eight deaths due to his anti-Semitic activities, not to mention the Tawana Brawley fraud, yet I've never seen him referred to as "controversial".

Are you kidding?
Nope. Why do you ask?
Google Freddie's Fashion Mart
Also note how the Democrat who tried to run her down is not refered to as a "controversial" Democrat.
This Barry Seltzer? Seriously, I'm asking.
Found a picture of the honorable judge at
He's the far right guy on the right picture.
Might be him. Anybody else find a better picture?
Additional information I found to aid you searches.

Sorry. Perhaps someone should check my work.
I don't think they're the same person. The arrest report at the Smoking Gun website lists that Seltzer as having a Sarasota address while Judge Seltzer works out of Ft. Lauderdale. That would be quite a commute. Besides, they don't look alike at all to me.
Because everything I have ever read about the man acknowledges he is "controversial." They don't necessarily attack the guy the way he deserves, but nobody even at AP or Reuters pretends he's in the mainstream.
come now. he's simply expressing himself. exercising his 1st ammendment rights.
Hard to tell. I think the article would have said he was a judge. My guess is that they are two different guys.
However, Democrats in high power do some very stupid things. And he was driving a Cadillac (smile)
ain't saline great?
Hadn't noticed. . . .
Yep, that's the peace loving party for you.
I can't believe the low amount of post this thread is recieving.
Neither can I.
