So the Florida Supreme Court ruled that the Florida House broke the law when it went home early, but that it was too late to bring lawmakers back! Are they kidding? (High court: Fla. House violated state law, May 2.)
If I left my job a few hours early, let alone a few days early, I would certainly be docked salary, assuming I didn’t get fired. If the court cannot fine or fire, it should at least require all House members to reconvene for the time missed.
And if the judges won’t or can’t uphold the best interests of the people of this state, maybe we need to fire them as well.
