Phantomlib posted about the attack by the Koch Brothers on the Florida Supreme Court.

I'm posting a new diary on it to give y'all links where you can help.

On facebook:

Even if you can't give money, at least please link to them on your Facebook page.

These justices have fairly and impartially dispensed justice in Florida for many years.  As an attorney who represents "underdogs," I know that when I bring a case to them, my clients will get a fair hearing.

That won't happen any more if the Koch Brothers get their way.

For decades, these have been nonpartisan appointments (in fact, Justice Quince was a bipartisan appointment by Lawton Chiles and Jeb Bush, when a vacancy came up at the end of Gov.Chiles' term).  The Republican Party and the Koch Brothers want to change that and let Rick Scott appoint partisans who will dance to their tune.  It will be much worse than the NFL's substitute Refs.  

Help keep justice in Florida fair and impartial.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
