Questions continue to swirl around the “mystery man” running against Broward Sheriff Scott Israel. In campaign paperwork filed with the Broward Supervisor of Elections Office (SOE), Edison Jules used a luxury apartment building in Plantation as his address. Jules’ campaign treasurer Katherine Antequera, a New York plus-sized model, also used the same Plantation address. Many assumed Jules, an Ohio policeman, still lived in the Buckeye state. However, REDBROWARD has uncovered new information regarding Jules’ residency.
On January 27, 2015, Edison Jules registered to vote in Broward County as a Democrat. Jules listed the Plantation apartment at 1600 SW 78th Avenue as his mailing address. Jules stated he lived at 11701 NW 29th Street in Sunrise. This Sunrise home is for sale “as-is.”
A real estate website claims the home is full of issues: “Possible Roof Damage, Possible Mold Damage, Possible Roof Leaks. Pool is cracked, needs to be filled or redone. Property being sold As-Is.”
When REDBROWARD visited, no one answered the door but dogs were barking.
A neighbor told REDBROWARD that several people have lived there over the last six months. The neighbor said he believes “A Mayor from Jamaica” lives there.
Ohio records show Jules lost his Groveport home in 2013. Bank New York Mellon started foreclosure proceedings against Jules and his wife in October 2011. Throughout the legal process, official legal documents were delivered to Jules at a New York address.
On his Linkedin page, Jules claims his production company is based in New York and Ohio.
Jules’ wife is registered to vote in Winter Haven, Florida.
Once again, Jules could clear up the mystery surrounding his campaign. Does he live in Ohio, New York, Sunrise, Plantation or anyplace else?
