In documents filed last week in Broward County Circuit Court, an official with Broward Republican Party admitted to creating an anonymous website attacking a former School Board Member. On January 14, 2019 Jeff Brown admitted to creating the KevinTynan.com website. Tynan, a former Broward School Board Member is also the former Chairman of the Broward Republican Executive Committee (BREC). Last month, Jeff Brown was elected treasurer of BREC.
According to a lawsuit filed by Tynan, the website contained “defamatory statements” meant to “tortuously interfere” with Tynan’s business relationships. Tynan is highly-respected local attorney.
In November, REDBROWARD reported Jeff Brown as well as companies owned by Brown (Top Of Google and Inspiration Museum) and tech giants Google and Go Daddy were subpoenaed by Tynan.
Even though Judge Sandra Perlman ordered the site closed, the operator has repeatedly published the website.
As part of the lawsuit, Tynan presented Brown with a set of interrogatories.
Jeff Brown admitted he registered the KevinTynan.com domain name.
Jeff Brown admitted he paid the fees to register the KevinTynan.com domain name.
Jeff Brown admitted to drafting the content referenced on KevinTynan.com.
Jeff Brown admitted to uploading content onto the KevinTynan.com website.
In December, Brown ran for the BREC treasurer position as part of a “BREC slate” which included Chairman George Moraitis and former Coral Springs City Commissioner Tom Powers. Also, Brown is paid to operate the party’s official website.
When asked for comment on these new revelations, BREC Chairman George Moraitis told REDBROWARD, “I have discussed this issue with Jeff and told him I do not want the members of our board to be involved with anonymous emails.”
Jeff Brown did not respond to an e-mail requesting comment.
With such a stunning admission made to the court by a person in control of the Party bank account, website and sensitive data, should BREC members have been told?
