BEST RIGHT-WINGER: Ronda Storms

Who fights for morality, or at least the Christian Coalition definition of morality? Who leads the pack when the fight is on the right side of the political spectrum? Who personally insulted gays, lesbians and pro-choice advocates throughout this county and turned Tampa into a national laughingstock? Hillsborough County Commissioner Ronda Storms, of course. Love her or hate her, Storms came out of nowhere in 1998 to win a seat on the commission and has since become the No. 1 force dividing our community today.
