Bulletproof? Broward County Commission Candidate Buys Body Armor

Broward County has some of the roughest politics in the country – from trading quips and snippy comments, to outright accusations and frequent gamesmanship, but until now gunfire has not been a significant concern for most candidates. Broward County Commission hopeful Christopher Warnig must know something we don’t. In his first campaign treasurer report, Warning lists a $255.44 expenditure for “protective apparel.” The pricey garment was purchased from NATMIL, one of Van Buren, Arkansas’ finest establishments. NATMIL (a.k.a National Military Armament, LLC) specializes in small weapons and bulletproof vests.

Last month, DAILY BROWARD reported young Mr. Warnig was arrested in 2011 for allegedly stopping three female motorists in Benton, Pennsylvania.

In February 2013, Warnig was arrested for falsely impersonating a police office by Wilton Manors Police. He was charged with possession of a handcuff key and unlawful use of police badges, as well.

Warnig told us, “everyone is innocent until proven guilty.”

Why does Warnig need a bulletproof vest and why did he charge it to his political campaign? We will keep you posted…
