Florida Voters Kick FL State Attorney Angela Corey, of Zimmerman Case Fame, Out of Office

Melissa Nelson, an unknown corporate lawyer and former prosecutor three months ago, cleared her path to become one of the most powerful and influential figures in Northeast Florida on Tuesday night when she easily defeated incumbent 4th Judicial State Attorney Angela Corey.

The first poll that came out after Nelson entered the race showed her with a 10-point lead. That expanded to a massive 32-point lead in a poll that was released last week.

Nelson campaigned on a platform of bringing integrity to the office and said Corey had lost the trust of the community with her actions.

The election caps a dizzying rise for Nelson and an equally shocking fall for Corey, one of the most polarizing political figures in Jacksonville history who generated national attention and enormous criticism for her prosecutions of George Zimmerman, Marissa Alexander, 12-year-old Cristian Fernandez and many others. Corey will depart office in the first week of January as the first incumbent state attorney in modern history to lose a contested election.


Many, including famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz, say Corey grandstanded the charges against George Zimmerman, intentionally botching the case. Dershowitz accused her of submitting a flimsy probable cause affidavit, and for that, recommended her disbarral.

She's also the one who gave black single mom Marissa Alexander 20 years for firing a warning shot to scare off her serial abuser estranged husband.

Congratulations to Melissa Nelson, and to the people of Florida.
