Emails Confirm BREC Treasurer’s Reports Received By SOE

RED BROWARD obtained copies of the BREC Treasurer’s Reports ( 9/11/2010-9/24/2010 & 9/25/2010-10/08/2010) after online reports claimed:

[T]his means that ‘Treasurer DeNapoli did not file for this reporting period as he said he did, yet reported every period thereafter.  Is there something here that he is trying to hide?

These copies were filed electroncially with the Broward Supervisor of Elections Office.

Now, some commentators make the wild accusation Richard DeNapoli may have produced false documents in an attempt to silence his critics. Along with the reports, RED BROWARD  received copies of emails between the BREC Treasurer and the Public Services Director at the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office. The emails are dated and clearly show the attached reports.

RED BROWARD hesitated posting these emails, since we did not have the permission of both parties. However, due to the accusations, and the fact these emails may be part of the public record, RED BROWARD decided to share them with the public.

DeNapoli: Treasurer’s Reports Not Missing, Filed with Snipes’ Office

Richard DeNapoli refutes recent report that BREC Treasurer’s documents are “missing”. An online story claimed the following:

DeNapoli recently stated that the BREC had raised in excess of $20,000 from the last fundraising event held on October 8, and he also claimed that all Treasurer reports have been filed with the County.   This is a very interesting assertion, since the reporting date of 9/11-2010- 10/8/2010 is conveniently missing from the Broward Supervisor of Election’s summary. This means that ‘Treasurer DeNapoli did not file for this reporting period as he said he did, yet reported every period thereafter.  Is there something here that he is trying to hide?

DeNapoli states Treasurer’s reports were filed electronically with the Supervisor of Elections Office. A hard copy of the report was submitted as well. DeNapoli tells RED BROWARD, the BREC treasurer’s reports are submitted to the SOE but the documents themselves are posted to the SOE website by a third-party vendor. A simple call to Mary Cooney at SOE seems to be in order. DeNapoli provided RED BROWARD with copies of the 9/11/2010- 9/24/2010 and 9/25/2010-10/08/2010 reports.
