Did Scott Israel Know About Robocall Smears Before Calls Made?


Robocalls attempting to hurt Sheriff Al Lamberti started going out this week to voters in Broward County. On Sunday in a Twitter conservation, Lamberti’s opponent Scott Israel (D-Republican) made mention of the “South Florida Tea Party” endorsement. How did Scott know?

Most Republicans and conservatives in Broward know that “South Florida Tea Party” is a suspect organization run out of Palm Beach.

Broward political observers are wondering why can’t Scott Israel and his manager Amy Rose play fair? They wonder if someone may use the same “endorsement” for Rose’s School Board client Abby Freedman. Ms. Freedman, the favored choice of Stacy Ritter (D-Booby Trap), Mickey Udine, Franklin Sands and Judy Stern, has spent a month desperately courting Republicans. They rebuffed her efforts after her associations were made known.

  1. Isn’t a Tea Party endorsement a good thing for a Republican? I understand that the South Florida Tea Party is fairly big here so their nod to Lamberti should be welcome d. Al Lamberti is a Republican so what’s the problem?


  2. With over 30,000 members, the South Florida Tea Party is the state’s largest Tea Party . Definitely not a secret. There is no conspiracy behind Scott Israel’s tweet. You can visit the website at: SouthFloridaTeaParty.org or on Facebook. Al Lamberti got the endorsement because he best represents Tea Party core values.
