Sounds like Josephus is running scared.
One individual posted all of the comments below, because he does not have a job or an education, however he has plenty of time to rant and rave. He shows up to every county and homeowners meeting with this same foolish reframe and he may need to look that word up and add it to his limited vocabulary. This individual needs to get a hobby and or a job and stop posting so many lies and slanderous comments on blogs. Oh- I am certainly not Mrs. Eggelletion, but I would be happy to represent her if you keep using her name.

Having Commissioner Eggelletion talking about "honesty and integrity" bearing in mind some of his past indiscretions - which were incidentally reported in the Sun-Sentinel - is a little bit like the kettle calling the pot black. Does the word "briefcase" ring any bells for readers???

I can't imagine anyone wanting to be seen as an incumbent.
Everyone I know is voting out incumbents until ALL the existing crooks and big spenders are gone!

From the SS Archives:
Josephus Eggelletion Jr. founded a non-profit corporation to allow minority, disadvantaged children play golf. The corporation is called Golf Oriented Leadership Foundation Inc., and he serves as its president. Eggelletion also has worked as a school administrator and owner/operator of a chain of barbershops. Eggelletion is a registered Democrat and the second black member of the County Commission in its history. He worked as a lobbyist at the same time he was a county commissioner, which led to an investigation and fine when the two roles conflicted. He admitted in 2005 that while employed as a lobbyist by Waste Management, he voted as a County Commission to award a $26,556 contract to the company to pick up garbage from county buildings. He also admitted that he worked for Waste Management while the firm was doing business with the county. He agreed to pay a $2,500 fine to the state Ethics Commission. The State Attorney's Office in 2003 cleared Eggelletion of any law violations when he used a government-issued credit card to buy more than $3,300 in personal items such as a Bally briefcase and claimed 55 hours sick time from his public school job when he was out of town on county business. The Ethics Commission also cleared him on the allegations concerning his sick time.

Nuff said!

How petty is this of Mr. Eggelletion, this shows me that he has wrong motives. Why go after someone over such a petty thing. He needs to be more focused on the issues in his district not that the word "for" was missing from the opponents advertisments.

More sleazy dishonest opponents running against one sleazy commissioner. How pathetic.
How can you say something like that, just because someone left out the word "for" does not make them sleazy or dishonest.

Befire you start threatening people about the Mrs Eggelletion you should be checking her spending habits and her bank acct. Joseph is nothing but a liar and a thief and has been taking kick backs for the airport expasion since he's been in office. The man can't look you in the face and have an honest conversation because he's a crook. If you want to have any legal ethics at all you should be protecting the people who he harms evrytime he lines his pockets. The airlines are pulling out and down sizing there fleets so why would any real person try to throw people out of there houses for a bogus runway that is not needed. Let alone they can't do anything right at that place which is more miss management by the county. Lets get real this is nothing but about $$$$ and Eggelletion has to come thru forall the $$$ he has taken. So if you want to threaten to take on people for being honest then I question your ethics. Wake up and look who is being srewed here. You can't threaten the honest people.
call me stupid
