In Florida, a Housing Rebel Wants to be Part of the System

In Florida, a Housing Rebel Wants to be Part of the System

Business week-

Local elections for county recorders and clerks rarely draw much attention or excitement. The position, after all, is essentially one of master file-keeper. On Aug. 14, voters in Palm Beach will face the question of whether their local county clerk can and should be more than a paper-pusher.

Lisa Epstein, a housing advocate, is challenging the Democratic incumbent Sharon Bock for the relatively obscure role of Palm Beach County Clerk of Circuit Court on the platform that clerks can help stop banks from robosigning foreclosure documents. As we’ve reported before, a mini-movement of local county recorders and clerks have become activists, trying to challenge banks on irregular paperwork or sidestepping the county offices entirely. The Palm Beach election is drawing national attention. Neil Barofsky, the former special inspector general for the bailout,  has endorsed her. Blogger Yves Smith of Naked Capitalism threw her support behind Epstein in a post titled “Get Everyone You Know in Palm Beach County to Vote for Lisa Epstein for Clerk of the Court Next Tuesday.”
