Spokespersons for both Jeb Bush and Janet Reno are indicating that Bill McBride may now have a business-related campaign issue to defuse. That’s because his old law firm, Holland & Knight — the state’s largest — has been experiencing cutbacks and now layoffs.

But to target McBride because H & K is not immune to the nation’s economic slowdown seems lame. And since when is freezing the pay of and laying off lawyers considered such a liability?
