Broward Inspector General John W. Scott has filed an ethics complaint against former Lauderdale Lakes Commissioner Eric L. Haynes for violating the Broward County Ethics Code. The eight page complaint alleges Haynes failed to disclose his outside employment with Inner Urban Asset Management of Fort Lauderdale, LLC. The three charges include failure to disclose and file for public inspection his employment with Inner Urban Asset Managment of Fort Lauderdale in 2012, 2013 and 2014. The Broward OIG is seeking $15,000 in fines.

Haynes is no stranger to ethics violations.

In June, the Broward Inspector General fined Haynes for lying about his residency. Haynes swore on official documents that he lived in the City of Lauderdale Lakes. A Broward OIG investigation found Haynes was actually living in Parkland.

Haynes is just one of many Broward politicians cheating the system and their constitutents. REDBROWARD has exposed the residency games of several local politicians. REDBROWARD has revealed how cronies of local politicians land taxpayer contracts and grants for their own benefit. It’s time for more action to stop this. Real action, not just fines and ethics complaints.

Broward voters deserve better. Right?
