Funny thing, you would think a man his age who lives in town in a house he rents from Andy O'Keef and not with his wife (he fails to mention that) would have something in his refrigerator besides a bottle of Vodka.

This POS fits right in with his quare buttie the sheriff except he likes little boys.
NO BO

Last night at the South Lake Hob Nob, Mike Graves won by a landslide again. It looks like Bo's negative advertising is growing thin on even the tea party folks. No qualifications = no Public Defender's Office. Vote MIKE GRAVES for Public Defender.

THEY ARE BUYING THESE STRAW VOTES AND EVEN THEN IT AIN'T GOOD-

LET'S SEE - BORDERS AND GRAVES HIGHLY FAVORED BY THE LAKE COUNTY COURTHOUSE MAFIA - EVEN JIMMY CONNER GOT A LITTLE EDGE ON THIS ONE BECAUSE IT WAS RUN BY HIS BUTTIE KASEY KISS THE RING! MAN IF THESE INSIDERS CAN'T DO ANY BETTER THAN THIS WHEN BORDERS ALONE HAS GOT 725 EMPLOYEES - EVEN MIKE GRAVES DONE BETTER THAN BORDERS. NOT SURE THIS LITTLE DABBLE IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR A SPIN IF THE REAL VOTERS GET THEIR VOTES COUNTED THIS TIME.

Ok, let me see of I'm getting this right. Straw pole in Hernando County - Bo's county of residence and surely where he has significant connections-Mike Graves wins by a landslide! At Citrus County Chronicle elections forum nobody shows up to support Bo even though it is the county of his office for the last ten years. Surely he must have a sphere of influence there...crickets! Both candidates speak and the next day the Citrus County Chronicle endorses MIKE GRAVES! A debate is scheduled by the Marion County Criminal Defense Bar. BO DOESN'T EVEN SHOW UP, Despite promising to be there! Every straw poll taken in every county MIKE GRAVES has won by landslides! Have you seen anyone campaigning for Bo other than him, his partner, and his family...NO! Has Bo had any message to give to the people except he is the only candidate to not have disciplinary action by the Florida Bar. No! MIKE GRAVES is the only qualified candidate. If you haven't voted yet check out the qualifications of both candidates and you will come to the only logical decision. If no one is campaigning for Bo and all you see are blue Mike Graves shirts worn by the legal community and most importantly the present employees of the Public Defender's Office, ask yourself why! Please vote for Mike Graves on August 14, 2012!!!
GO BO

Ya'll must be mighty worried to keep up this drivel.

Win, Lose or draw at least the people of the 5th Judicial CIRCUS made the sucker have to get out of OKeef's Bar and run for office like a real man.

What's going to be funny is if him and some of his other courthouse mafia butties win and their sick arse buttie the "shuriff" loses. Can you imagine these drunks and drug addicts having an honest sheriff again? That will be worth the watching.

Yes! That would be Brent King. Mike Graves is also the same Mike Graves that has represented every other Lake County courthouse mafia family member including Bruce Duncan.Sheriff Borders old boy friend and former Judge Hill bailiff Robert Myers, Mr plead bargain himself. Didn't do too good with Duncan huh?
