Home Is Where The Campaign Is

A recent opinion from the Florida Judicial Ethics Advisory Committee:

ISSUES

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?

ANSWER: Yes.

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.
