A recent opinion from the Florida Judicial Ethics Advisory Committee:
May a committee of responsible persons, established by a judicial candidate to support the candidate’s campaign, hold an event at the candidate’s parents’ home, at which funds will be solicited for the candidate’s campaign?
May the committee solicit contributions in the flyer promoting the event and at the event itself?
ANSWER: Yes. However, neither the candidate nor her parents may be present when the solicitation of funds is made.
