Steve Vernon Running For Fl State District 73 Sends Flyer Disparaging Opponent Joe Gruters 3 Little Kids Apparently Vernon Has No Respect For Little Kids Ticketed 47 in 20 MPH School Zone

What is Steve Vernon's problem with little kids? Steve Vernon is Running for Fl State District 73. Lakewood Ranch Republican Steve Vernon sent out a flyer disparaging opponent Joe Gruters 3 little kids, apparently Vernon has no respect for little kids. Steve Vernon was ticketed doing 47 in a 20 MPH Manatee County school zone, while school was in session on March 30th 2012 in the morning, he paid a $431 fine. Steven M. Vernon listed a phone number of 941-321-0616 when corresponding with the Manatee County Clerk. What the hell was that all about, all Manatee County 20 mph school zones are marked with flashing lights and warning signs as you approach the school, was this Vernon guy just not paying attention or was this some sort of road rage. Hard to tell as the 3 page speeding citation has been sealed and marked confidential by the Manatee County Clerk. As a private investigator I have never seen a 3 page speeding citation nor have I ever seen a speeding citation sealed and marked confidential, see Manatee County Clerk public page
FLORIDA POLITICS: Joe Gruters says mailer calling his children a distraction should disqualify HD 73 opponent (STEVE VERNON). For Joe Gruters, being a dad to three small children in an asset. His opponent, it appears, thinks otherwise. Gruters is demanding an apology after his House District 73 opponent — Lakewood Ranch Republican Steve Vernon — sent a mailer that, among other things, said Gruters’ three young children would be a distraction.The mailer said Gruters will “have a new business, multiple political appointments and two volunteer positions of authority with the Republican Party, and is the father of three babies that will distract him from representing the district.” Gruters said he believes the mailer was sent to voters in Manatee County, which makes up about 85 percent of the district.  

“I just think it’s sad and I think he should apologize,” said Gruters in an interview with “At the end of the day, that’s what we’re running for. And for him to say having babies is a distraction is so off base and disqualifying.” The House District 73 race has become increasingly nasty as the Aug. 30 primary nears. Vernon has been hitting Gruters for his connections to the Republican Party, calling him a career politician and a party boss. Those attacks don’t bother Gruters that much. But bringing his kids — ages 4, 2 and 10 months — does.“It’s totally out of bounds,” said Gruters. “You never want to bring family members into a political discussion.”
