This just in...Chris Carmody, big-time lawyer from Orlando, FL (but more importantly, past UF Senate President & Swamp Presidential Candidate) has prepared a statement for TheRadikal.com in regards to Glenda-Gate. Chris' post will be published alongside Part 2 of Sam Miorelli's response to this blog.TOMORROW
First & foremost, I'd like to personally offer Fmr. SBP Ryan Moseley good luck with his current legal troubles. Although this is a GDI Blog, I think everyone should be as supportive as the circumstances permit. I'm not advocating that he be given a medal, but of all the charges conceivable 'open container' is pretty fuckin weak. Not only that, but as someone familiar with GPD's tactics, I'm only surprised he got the resisting arrest "without violence" collar. Like I said, this is just plain weak.
Independents Leading the Way!
From both the Alligator.org & related emails, it seems members of the Orange & Blue Party really pressed an unprepared Patricia Telles-Irvin. During a week that saw fmr. Gator Party Student Body President Ryan Moseley taken into custody by the Gainesville Police Dept., members of the Opposition party were out in full force defending the rights of the student body, the same student body that has largely voted against them in the past.
A new standard is being set by the Orange & Blue Party, most notably through leaders like Sam Miorelli, Mark McShera, Frank Bracco, Kyle Huey, Ben Cavatero, and many others. This is not a party of 1, but an army of many! As an alum, former student senator, and former party leader, I am extremely proud of today's Independent community.
Interesting background too...lol
