Remove Judge Greer? (Terri Case)

[Media Source*]

Interesting post by The Empire Journal:
According to public records, George W. Greer, the judge at the center of Terri Schindler-Schiavo saga, not only failed to timely file the proper candidate and loyalty oaths in the proper form, he allegedly violated Florida statutes and failed to qualify for office and therefore, his name could not legally appear on the Florida ballot in 1998 and 2004 when he claims he was elected.

Even if one were to cast the oath argument aside, a review of the public records and confirmation by assistant general counsel in the Florida Secretary of State’s office has confirmed that Greer did not qualify for office because he did not file the statement of candidate for judicial office that is required in order to qualify to gain access to the ballot.

Do I see a shaft of light opening up at the end of the tunnel? More below.

More from the Empire Journal:
According to D.H. Penton, assistant general counsel with the Secretary of State’s office, and the Division of Elections, George Greer allegedly failed to file the requisite statement both in 1998 and 2004.

Florida law provides that if any person required to take the mandated oath fails to execute same, the governing authority under which such person is employed shall cause that person to be immediately discharged and his name removed from payroll.

"The oath is a prerequisite to qualify for public office", the AG’s opinion states. "Any candidate who fails or requires to file the requisite oath will have failed to qualify as a candidate for public office and the name of such person shall not be printed on the ballot as a qualified candidate...The provisions are mandatory and binding on all officers".

Think about it. If Judge Greer's oath is invalid, then wouldn't his ruling on the Terri case be as well? Where is a law blogger when I need one!
