BREAKING NEWS: Elijah Manley, a Broward County School Board candidate, was arrested by Fort Lauderdale Police on Friday. Manley was charged with resisting arrest/obstructing officers without violence. Manley is being held at the main jail in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

A source in the legal community tells REDBROWARD Manley’s arrest is related to the upcoming Fort Lauderdale City Commission elections. A self-described “radical,” Manley is one of several Dale Holness operatives supporting the mayoral campaign of Fort Lauderdale Commissioner Dean Trantalis.

Earlier this week, REDBROWARD revealed City of Fort Lauderdale campaign treasurer reports show Trantalis paid Elijah Manley for campaign work.
