On Sunday, a who’s who of Broward elected officials, candidates and lawyers gathered at the home of former Broward County Property Appraiser Lori Parrish for Judge Tarlika Navarro’s campaign kickoff. Like previous events at Parrish’s southwest Broward home, guests gathered around the pool to listen to the guest of honor. While the attendance of candidates on the same ballot is not uncommon at these fundraisers, Sunday’s event took it to a whole different level.

Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony, a newly minted Democrat, attended Navarro’s kickoff. Also attending the Navarro kickoff was former Broward Sheriff Scott Israel. Governor Ron DeSantis removed Israel over issues stemming from the 2017 massacre at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Tony was appointed by Governor DeSantis to replace Israel.

The very definition of a party foul? Didn’t anyone check the guest list?

Both men are running for the 2020 Democrat Party nomination for Sheriff. No word if Tony and Israel spoke at the event.
