In a previous Shark Tank post, we uncovered that the BREC Treasurer and current candidate for REC Chairman, Richard DeNapoli had not filed the required Treasurer reports to the Supervisor of Elections -DeNapoli Faces Ethics Issues, Treasurer’s Report Missing
Earlier today it was discovered that , of the two missing reports first reported about, the G2 9/11/2010-/24/2010 is still not filed. DeNapoli stated that he filed them, and even went as far as submitting email communications to the Broward SOE to help his case. The SOE has not posted either one of missing reports, but does have a copy of the 9/25/10-10/08/2010 filing-a copy of the report was furnished to me.
Now an anonymous source is alleging that Chairwoman Guerra told them that the BREC has made a loan or donation of $15,000 to a local political campaign. I have reviewed all of the filed BREC’s Treasurer reports, and have not been able to corroborate the allegation, but keep in mind that the missing G2 could prove to be the ‘wild card’ to this story. Earlier today I sent an email to Chairman Guerra requesting requesting the missing report furnished to the BREC, but still no response to my request.
Here is the email I sent out earlier today:
This email is to confirm to you that the missing Treasurer’s reports I first reported on in my post earlier this week are still missing. I went to the Broward SOE this morning and the clerk confirmed that Treasurer’s report G2 9/11-9/25 is missing-all of the reports prior to this missing report, and the reports that followed, are all accountable. Furthermore, the clerk directed me to the Florida Division of Elections to verify the Treasurer reports were filed with the state-all reports originate from the Florida DOE.
But upon contacting the Division of Elections, the attendant notified me that the BREC was not registered with the state. The Florida Division of Elections mandates that all political committees have a Registered Agent registered- statute 106.022 Appointment of a Registered Agent. What is more troubling to me is that an anonymous source has told me that you divulged to them that the BREC donated, or loaned $15,000 to a local political campaign.
How much does DeNapoli know, and what is he hiding in that missing G2 report? With these accounting practices as lax as this,a and with his history of deception, how could BREC members trust him to lead the REC?
Here is the link to the DOE to search for yourself http://election.dos.state.fl.us/
I don’t think there is anything illegal here, however, I do feel that the BREC needs to be made aware of this transaction, if the allegation is true. But what the BREC is entitled to know and see, is the G2 report that has not been filed with the Broward Supervisor of Elections. It is probably an oversight by the Treasurer, Richard DeNapoli, since every other report is accounted for.So basically, this can all be cleared up with the BREC furnishing these documents.
Please send me that missing G2 Treasurer’s report to me, no later than 2pm. I would like to clear the air, and be able to amend my prior post regarding the missing reports.
