Looks like the editors at the Times have opened up the books and decided Aaron Sharockman deserves to be a made guy.

After the St. Petersburg Mayoral Campaign, Sharockman will begin his new duties, covering Florida politics for the Times‘ Pulitzer prize-winning PolitiFact. The only downside to this is that Aaron will no longer be covering the drive to build a new baseball stadium.

Congratulations to a great reporter, even if he is a lousy card player. (He once called me with a pair of eights against a board that read Ace, King, Deuce; I had a King. He thought I was bluffing on the Ace.)

Peter Schorsch is the President of Extensive Enterprises and is the publisher of some of Florida’s most influential new media websites, including,,, and Sunburn, the morning read of what’s hot in Florida politics.
