Hi kids, here's what is sloshing around in my noggin this am:
1. Free candy handouts to poor people -- this Obama guy never quits!
2. How do you get the Governor to show for a deposition -- hold a fundraiser:
Attorney Steven R. Andrews was prepared to put the governor under oath in Tallahassee, but Scott's communications director, Frank Collins, said Thursday that "there is not going to be a deposition tomorrow." Scott's lawyers asked the judge to quash the deposition but, as of late Thursday, they hadn't received an answer.No doy!
Scott is instead expected to attend a fundraiser at the Biltmore in Coral Gables, featuring former Gov. Jeb Bush, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera.
However, if the governor is a no-show for a deposition in a case he initiated, it may not be without consequences.
According to California's rules of civil procedure, the governor must submit to the deposition today unless he has received the court's permission to change the date, said Walter Clark, a trial lawyer who practices in Southern California.
Last I checked, parties can't unilaterally cancel a deposition unless they get a court order in advance.
Or do special rules apply to our Governator?
3. No quicker way to clear a courtroom.
4. Enough with these red light cameras.
5. Early vote, plebes!
Have a great weekend!
