You might think that a trial lawyer might be just a tad more careful than was the case when Miami-Dade trial lawyer chief Andrew Moss took a swipe at a camera at an event featuring Charlie Crist.
The report – and the video – was duly made and posted for all to see, as Marc Cupoto blogged in the Miami Herald below:
A warning to anyone who holds an event for a major candidate for Florida governor: There will be trackers, the video camera-wielding politico-paparazzi on the lookout for gaffes or drama.
And they’re always recording.
The Republican Party of Florida posted the video hours later on YouTube.
Moss said the tracker, whom he identified as Francisco Chamorro, lied about being an attorney. Chamorro couldn’t be reached. He arrived at the event’s sign-in desk with a Rick Scott campaign-affiliated attorney, who is not a member of the group. Moss told both to leave before Crist spoke.
“So, why are you asking me to leave?” the tracker asks on the video.
Moss: “Because it’s a members-only group and you’re not a member.”
Tracker: “Was there anybody who told you that…”
Moss: “Are you recording me?”
At that point, Moss hit the camera-phone out of his hand and the video stops.
Moss, who said he was acting independently of Crist, acknowledged he shouldn’t have hit the tracker’s smartphone – even though, he says, the man was trying to secretly record him.Read more at the Miami Herald
