From the May 2001 Idaho Observer:

Florida headlines reflect problem with lawyers

Perhaps the most obvious examples that the Constitutional Guardians' campaign to remove lawyers from non-judicial public office are found in the headlines they have generated in Florida's daily dominant media. If we are to accomplish the task of limiting the participation of lawyers to the judicial branch of government only, we must employ methods of activism that generate press coverage in ways that reach a lot of people. The Constitutional Guardians have proven that running for public office on a “no-lawyers-in-non-judicial-public-office” campaign is an excellent way to reach entire communities. Proposing legislation and filing lawsuits are also good ways to get press. The good thing about this issue is that the only people who disagree with the premise that it is illegal and unconstitutional for lawyers to hold non-judicial public office are lawyers and the families of lawyers.

Following are examples of headlines that have been published in Florida dailies in the last few years:
