Federal PAC Located At Dale Holness’ Business/Campaign Office Gave Big Bucks To Company Linked To Daughter

Envelope For Federal PAC used Dale Holness Address
4325 W. Sunrise Blvd Is Address For Holness Real Estate Office & Campaign Office

Stop us if this sounds familiar. A shady political action committee (PAC), started by operatives of Congressional candidate Dale Holness, paid big bucks to companies tied to Dale Holness operatives. Federal records show Kayla Butler, a Palm Beach yoga instructor, formed the “Prosperity For All People” political committee in October 2019. While paperwork for the committee claimed the committee was located at a Boca Raton Pak Mail store, a scan of the envelope lists its address as 4325 West Sunrise Blvd in Plantation.

This is the address of Dale Holness’ All Broward Realty company as well as the address of his campaign office.

Before it’s “administrative termination” by the Federal Elections Commission in February 2021, Prosperity For All People raised $24,000 from seventeen contributions.

Prosperity For All People’s only expenditure came nine months later. The committee reported a $15,000 payment to All Priority Consulting, Inc. located at The UPS Store on University Drive in Lauderhill.

According to State Corporation records, All Priority Consulting, Inc. was formed in July 2020 by Karlisle Williamson Jr.

While its latest filing with the State of Florida uses the same Lauderhill UPS Store as its address, when first formed, All Priority Consulting used a different location.

Paperwork filed in July 2020 states All Priority Consulting was located at 5523 Barnstead Circle in Lake Worth, Florida.

TEAM HOLNESS: STRONGER TOGETHER?

REDBROWARD previously reported on Kayla Butler’s role in forming political committees tied to Dale Holness. On July 20, 2020, Butler, a paid intern on Dale Holness 2016 Broward Commission campaign, filed paperwork forming the Stronger Together Florida political with the Division of Elections in Tallahassee. According to the documents, the political committee is located at home on Barnstead Circle in Lake Worth, Florida. The telephone number for the committee is (754) 444-6117.

The telephone number for Stronger Together Florida is also found in State records regarding third party groups conducting voter registrations. The number is listed for “All Consulting And Marketing, Inc.” which conducted voter registration drives at 4325 W. Sunrise Blvd in Plantation since May, 2019.

Once again, this is the same address for All Broward Realty, Inc, a real estate company owned by Dale Holness.

According to the State third party voter registration records and State corporate records, All Consulting And Marketing Inc. is owned by Richelle Holness, the daughter of Broward Mayor Dale Holness.

State license records show Richelle Holness is a licensed real estate agent at All Broward Realty.

Last year, REDBROWARD called Richelle Holness to ask about her ties to these political committees.

After confirming she was Richelle Holness, she said, “You know you’re calling Richelle. I don’t know why you’re calling me.” After advising Holness that her telephone number was listed in the documents filed with the Florida Division of Elections, we asked what was the purpose of the PAC. Holness said, “You can look it up on FEC [Federal Elections Committee] or whatever.”

When asked if she knew Kayla Butler, Holness said, “Thank you for your time, goodbye” and hung up.

OMAR SMITH & THE LADY ON BARNSTEAD CIRCLE

REDBROWARD later revealed that the house at 5523 Barnstead Circle was the home of Dale Holness’ ex-wife, Ann. Within hours of the publication of our story, Omar Smith called REDBROWARD. Smith begged us to removed Holness’ ex-wife name from the story. He claimed she played no role in politics. While speaking to Smith, a angry female voice could be heard yelling at him.

ACCOUNTABILITY PROJECT & SHERIFF GREGORY TONY

In addition to Butler’s Prosperity For All People, All Priority Consulting received money from other political committees involved in Broward elections. REDBROWARD exposed how funds from a committee supporting Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony were funneled to Holness operatives. Broward First was a political committee supporting Tony’s election in 2020.

In the weeks surrounding the August 2020 primary, the Parkland-based Broward First political committee sent $36,750 to two different political committees in Fort Lauderdale. On July 27, 2020 Broward First made a $16,000 contribution to the Young Professionals For Florida political committee. On August 25, 2020 Broward First made a $20,750 contribution to the South Florida Accountability Project.

On July 27, 2020, Young Professionals For Florida made a $16,000 contribution to the South Florida Accountability Project.

On that very day, Karlisle Williamson Jr. created All Priority Consulting, Inc., State corporation records show.

Less than a month later, the South Florida Accountability Project paid $15,000 to All Priority Consulting.

On August 12, 2020 the money was refunded to the political committee. It was repaid to All Priority Consulting on August 13, 2020.

On September 2, 2020, the South Florida Accountability Project paid $20,000 to A Star For I, Inc. As REDBROWARD reported on numerous occasions. A Star For I, Inc. is owned and operated by Dale Holness campaign guru Omar M. Smith.

Last week, Federal prosecutors charged Omar Smith with conspiracy to commit bank fraud and wire fraud to fraudulently obtain a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan. Smith received a $215,500 PPP loan for his A Star For I company.

One shady political committee based at Dale Holness’ real estate office. Another PAC based at his ex-wife’s home. And, a political consulting company located at the ex-wife’s home as well. Huge paydays for Omar Smith.

Earlier this week, REDBROWARD revealed All Consulting Broward, a company owned by Richelle Holness, was paid $350,000 in 2020 for GOTV consulting by the Democratic Executive Committee of Florida.

Why was so much money money being paid to operatives and companies tied to Dale Holness during the election of 2020?

What did Team Holness do with all that money?

Dale Holness’ Gave $1,000 Contribution To Political Committee Tied To Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton & Happy Feet Advertising

The real estate company owned by former Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness gave $1,000 to a political committee tied to Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton and the mysterious Happy Feet Advertising company, records show. On January 4, 2022, Holness’ All Broward Realty made the $1,000 contribution to Broward Vision PAC. REDBROWARD previously exposed the deep ties between Broward Vision PAC and Marlon Bolton.

In September 2019, Trace Robinson created the Broward Vision PAC political committee using the same post office box address used by businesses owned by Marlon Bolton. Florida business records list Marlon Bolton and Trace Robinson as owners of The Driven Project, Praise Experience Worldwide Outreach Church, and South Florida Theological Seminary, Inc.

Last year, REDBROWARD revealed ties between Broward Vision PAC and North Lauderdale Commission Regina Martin, another Bolton ally. On September 11, 2020, Regina Martin announced Broward Vision endorsed her campaign. “Thank you Broward Vision for your support and endorsement of our campaign..#letsrebuildtogether.”

State elections records show half of Broward Vision PAC donors were longtime Marlon Bolton donors. At least Twelve of Broward Vision PAC donors contributed to Marlon Bolton’s 2020 re-election campaign. Most of those funds were spent on businesses with ties to Bolton.

State of Florida campaign records show Broward Vision PAC paid $1,400 to Exy Consultants, a corporation created under the Happy Feet Advertising LLC name by Robinson. Exy Consultants used the same P.O. Box 451711 address as Marlon Bolton. Trace Robinson is the founder of Happy Feet Advertising.

On December 12, 2021, Broward Vision PAC paid $3,370 to Happy Feet Advertising LLC for consulting. Last month, Broward Vision PAC paid nearly $3,300 to Minuteman Press in Coral Springs and $300 to WZOP of Lauderdale Lakes.

REDBROWARD readers will recognize that these companies regularly do business with committees tied to Marlon Bolton.

Loyal readers will also remember our report yesterday detailing Tamarac Commissioner Debra Placko’s 2018 payment to another company owned by Trace Robinson. Just week after Placko paid $4,000 to Robinson’s Residents United Advertising LLC, she was endorsed by the illegal A Better Florida For All PAC. REDBROWARD exposed the ties between A Better Florida For All and Dale Holness and Omar Smith, his campaign guru.

Why are there so many political committees involved in Tamarac politics?

Why are so many Tamarac politicians eager to support these mysterious political committees?

What is Marlon Bolton’s true role with these committees and companies?

Marlon Bolton refuses to answer questions about Happy Feet Advertising, Resident United Advertising LLC, Residents United PAC, Broward Vision PAC, Go Tamarac Go PAC, Conservative Governance PAC, Our Blue Democracy PAC, Trace Robinson, Carl Williams and Malucci Joseph.

Don’t Tamarac residents deserve answers?

Dale Holness Throws Son Under The Bus, Claims He Does Not Know If Son Received Check From Daughter’s PPP Loan Scheme

Does Dale Holness Know Best?

In a bizarre effort to address claims he threw his daughter “under the bus” following her arrest last month for her role in federal conspiracy to fraudulently obtain a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan, Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness threw his son under the very same bus. Last month, the U.S. Attorney charged Damara Holness with conspiracy to commit wire fraud to obtain a $350,000 PPP loan. In August 2020, REDBROWARD first exposed how Damara Holness landed a huge loan using her father’s business address in loan documents.

Dale Holness quickly tried to distance himself from his daughter. Following her arrest, Dale Holness made the laughable claim that he was “estranged for years” from Damara Holness. REDBROWARD showed the deep political ties between father and daughter over the few election cycles. Apparently, REDBROWARD readers were not the only ones to think Holness threw his daughter under the bus.

On August 21, 2021 Dale Holness was the guest on the “RACE and The Races” Facebook program. From the start, Holness showed his displeasure with the hosts who dared to discuss the recent arrest of Damara Holness. He scolded hosts Narnike Grant and Sandra Cherfrere for listening to “gossip” that could damage his chances to win the U.S Congressional seat previously held by Alcee Hastings.

Both hosts stated that black women were unhappy with Holness’ “estranged” statement following Damara Holness’ arrest. They wondered why Holness “threw his daughter under the bus” instead of saying nothing.

How did Dale Holness respond?

UNDER THE BUS

The U.S. Attorney alleges Damara Holness wrote checks to individuals in an attempt to conceal her PPP loan fraud. The Federal Government alleges Damara Holness wrote checks to individuals who then endorsed the checks back to her. Once the checks were cashed, the individuals received a small percentage of the amount while Damara Holness kept the rest.

During his appearance on “RACE and The Races,” Dale Holness appeared desperate to distance himself from this check cashing scheme. So desperate that he appears to implicate his namesake son in his daughter’s scheme.

Holness was angry that one of the hosts mentioned he may have received a check from Damara Holness. “Nonsense,” Holness said. But Dale Holness was not satisfied with his denial. He decided to throw his son under the bus.

Holness said, “I have a son, Dale Holness, similar to mine. I don’t know if he got any but I didn’t get no check.”

Dale Holness continued, “you have to be careful when you put stuff out there, it’s dangerous and damaging to people….”

Umm, yeah.

So why did Dale Holness bring his 35 year old son into this?

Does Dale Holness know that checks were made out to “Dale Holness?”

His son was never mentioned in the charging documents.

Why would Dale Holness do something so “dangerous and damaging” like dropping his son into the middle of an ongoing Federal investigation?

Is Dale Holness so desperate to save his own political skin that he would throw not one but two of his children under the bus?

A real father of the year.
