What the Florida AG should be doing

Check out the final judgment, below, against Republic Services, a client of DAN GELBER's former law firm, AKERMAN SENTERFITT.

Notice that several states joined in the federal antitrust lawsuit about anti-competitive practices by WAYNE HUIZENGA;s REPUBLIC SERVICES.

Florida's AG did not join with the Attorneys General of the United States and seven states (California, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas).

Wonder why? Our current Florida AG, WILLIAM McCOLLUM, is a known Republcan.

Sadly, Republicans (who adopted our antitrust laws in 1890) don't believe in antitrust laws -- they are handmaidens of monopoly, from sea to shining sea.

Republicans are pro-trust, pro-monopoly and pro-polluter.

If we were to elect DAN GELBER as Florida's Attorney General, do you expect him to bring antitrust lawsuits against the Who's Who of AKERMAN SENTERFITT's client list?

Do you think DAN GELBER would bestir himself and his staff to do something for what BP's Chair ineptly called "the small people," e.g., bring antitrust lawsuits under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act?

I don't reckon.

What do you reckon?
