Life and politics from the Sunshine State's best city

Can Susan Glickman ever shoot straight?

in Peter/Top Headlines by

The House of Representatives’ new lobbying registration regime has ensnared Susan Glickman, Florida director for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy.

House Speaker Richard Corcoran now requires lobbyists to disclose every bill, amendment, and individual appropriation they are trying to influence.

Go to the House website, and you’ll see Glickman is registered for four House bills. But not for a fifth that she also testified on recently.

That would be HB 1043, which would allow Florida Power & Light the ability to pass on the cost of energy exploration to its customers.

Whoops.

But this isn’t the first time silly Susie has blundered her way through the thicket of lobbying disclosures.

Back in 2015, Glickman appeared before the Senate Appropriations Committee to discuss the importance of registering lobbyists.

But a search on the state’s registration website showed she herself had not registered, despite appearing as a lobbyist before at least three committees during Session.

Did I say “whoops” already?

So now it remains to be seen what punishment Glickman gets for not being able to follow the rules.

We’d be OK with a one-year banishment from the halls of the Capitol. Or at least on the House side.
