Americans for Prosperity, the conservative advocacy group affiliated with the Koch brothers, will unveil a political campaign on Tuesday designed to highlight the judicial records of the three Florida Supreme Court justices who are up for merit retention.
The group will will launch a web site to provide voters with information on the justices’ records: youbethejudge.com, and run 30-second television ads across the state chastising the justices, AFP of Florida president Slade O'Brien told the Herald/Times. They would not release how much they plan to spend.
The first ad will focus on the court's 5-2 decsion in 2010, rejecting the proposed constitutional amendment intended by the Legislature to counter President Barack Obama’s Affordable Health Care Act — the one Republicans dubbed ObamaCare.
“We’re not advocating for the election or defeat of any of the justices what we’re attempting to do is call more attention to them advocating from the bench,’’ O’Brien said.
