Description

A four-month Palm Beach Post investigation revealed that the frontrunner in Palm Beach County's state attorney race, a prominent local politician, engaged in questionable behind-the-scenes politicking to clear his path to office. The newspaper's reporting linked the politician to threats against a popular local judge and showed that he had orchestrated a series of covert attacks against the sitting state attorney, exploiting a loophole in state campaign finance law by secretly funneling the attacks through a millionaire who wanted a favor from the state attorney's office.
