In June 2012, just months before they launched a massive Democrat voter outreach effort in Broward County, Congressman Alcee Hastings gave an award named after his mother to Broward Supervisor of Elections Office (SOE) attorney Burnadette Norris-Weeks. REDBROWARD obtained photgraphs of Norris-Weeks accepting the “Mildred Hastings Tenacity Award” at a June 3, 2012 Hastings event in Broward County. Earlier this week, REDBROWARD revealed Norris-Weeks received more than a plaque from the controversial congressman.
Federal campaign records show Congressman Hastings paid Avenue Executive, a company owned by Burnadette Norris-Weeks, for planning the “Step Up To The Polls” 2012 Democrat Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) efforts. On October 12, 2012, Hastings’ campaign made a $2,000 “GOTV Contribution” to Avenue Executive. According to Hastings, Norris-Weeks’ event was a major component of his Operation: Big Vote plan to maximize African-American voter turnout.
Does Burnadette Norris-Weeks do any other work for Congressman Alcee Hastings?
Broward voters deserve answers.
