A new mail piece from the shadowy “Voters Response” group in Tallahassee, uses a mugshot to highlight the 1996 arrest of Frantz Jahra McLawrence. A previous mailer referenced McLawrence’s arrest but did not use his jailhouse booking photograph. McLawrence was arrested in Leon County for driving while his license was suspended.
The piece states McLawrence “Has an arrest record and he’s running a nasty campaign.” The group claims,”He feels entitled to throw stones and run a negative campaign attacking his opponent.” McLawrence is running against Broward Circuit Court Judge Lynn Rosenthal. His campaign has highlighted her recent DUI arrest. McLawrence makes repeated references to be “sober.”
As RED BROWARD previously reported, McLawrence is supported by controversial Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness and his daughter. McLawrence and Holness were members of Judge Ian Richards campaing committee.
