In 2018, Democrat Gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum made two large payments to a company owned by the daughter of then Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness but listed the address of an Oklahoma company with a similar sounding name, election records show. Gillum, the former Mayor of Tallahassee, lost to the race to Ron DeSantis. Dale Holness played a vital role in the Gillum campaign in Broward.

Dale Holness’ real estate office in Plantation was transformed into Gillum campaign headquarters. As REDBROWARD previously reported, Holness and daughter Damara Holness filmed campaign videos for Gillum inside the office. Project Veritas even recorded undercover video of Holness campaign guru Omar Smith working inside the office. And REDBROWARD spoke with Smith during a Gillum campaign rally in the parking lot of Holness’ office.

Damara wasn’t the only Holness daughter involved in the Gillum campaign. According to State of Florida elections records, the Gillum campaign made two payments to All Consulting and Marketing Inc. State corporate records show the company was formed in January 2018 by Richelle Holness.

On November 2, 2018, the Gillum campaign made a $37,000 payment to All Consulting and Marketing Inc. Then, on December 7, 2018, Gillum made a $120,500 payment to All Consulting and Marketing Inc. Both payments were made for “research” by the company.

State of Florida records show All Consulting And Marketing Inc is based in Wellington, Florida. However, the Gillum campaign reports claim All Consulting and Marketing Inc is located at “1718 South Cheyenne” in Tulsa, Oklahoma.


There is a company located at 1718 South Cheyenne Avenue in Tulsa, Oklahoma. ALL Consulting performs environmental engineering work and consulting. And it is not owned by Richelle Holness.

REDBROWARD spoke with ALL Consulting founder and CEO Dan Arthur. When asked if his company performed any work for Andrew Gillum, Arthur said, “It absolutely isn’t me or my firm.” Arthur said his firm never performed research for any Florida candidate.

So how did $157,500 payment to a firm owned by Richelle Holness get the address of an Oklahoma engineering firm?

As REDBROWARD reported yesterday, the use of wrong addresses seems to plague companies and political committees tied to TEAM HOLNESS.

What kind of “research” did Rochelle Holness perform for Andrew Gillum.

What kind of “research” is worth $157,500?

Andrew Gillum. Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony. The Democratic Executive Committee of Florida. Why are these candidates and organizations paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to entities tied to Dale Holness?

What magic does Dale Holness claim to perform during Broward elections? Why didn’t this magic work for his bid for U.S. Congress?

Broward residents deserve answers, right?

George Soros Backed PAC Gave More Than $6 Million To Broward Vote Canvassing Co.

George Soros spent more than $6 million dollars in Broward

Since 2018, Federal and State PACs funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros have paid more than $6 million dollars to an obscure vote canvassing firm located in Lauderhill, records show. The Win Justice PAC and its State of Florida affiliated committee paid the huge sums to Hard Knock Strategies, an LLC formed in March 2018.

State Of Florida records show Hard Knocks Strategies is one of three companies owned by Itohan “Stephanie” Ighodaro of Fort Laudersale. The three business are located in a nondescript office building at 3521 W. Broward Blvd in Lauderhill.

According to numerous published reports, George Soros uses the Win Justice PACs in a effort to elect radical State Attorney candidates all across the United States.

In 2019, The Washington Post reported George Soros’ PAC spent more than $1 million dollars on State Attorney races in Virginia. POLITICO reported Soros’ PAC funded Kim Foxx, the controversial Cook County prosecutor in the Jussie Smollet case. In St. Louis, George Soros’ PAC funds Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner who tried to prosecute Mark and Patricia McCloskey for defending their home from rioters.

George Soros’ desire to reshape the U.S. justice system is no secret.

“Yes, it’s no secret we contribute to Safety and Justice PACs,” Soros spokesman Michael Vachon, told Just the News. “We are for criminal justice reform.”

In August, REDBROWARD exposed a new Soros-backed political committee’s role in the Broward State Attorney race. The Florida Justice & Public Safety PAC mailed campaign materials to Broward Democrat voters touting the radical left-wing agenda of Democrat Joe Kimok. Formed on July 23, 2020, the Florida committee is affiliated with the Washington D.C. based Justice and Public Safety PAC as well as the Kimok campaign.

But George Soros’ millions of dollars paid to Hard Knocks is spent to promote more than State Attorney campaigns.

In 2018, the Federal Win Justice PAC paid $2,239,334 to Hard Knocks. Federal campaign records show the money was used to support the campaigns of Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, Donna Shalala and Senator Bill Nelson.

That same year, Hard Knocks received $2,536,164.08 from the Win Justice state political committee.

In 2018, Hard Knocks Strategies of Lauderhill received 4,775,498.08 from George Soros’ political committees. Not too shabby for “phone banking” and “vote canvassing.”

For the 2020 election, Hard Knocks Strategies continues to be a George Soros favorite.

For this cycle, Hard Knocks Strategies has been paid $764,500 by the State Win Justice political committee.

Federal records show the Win Justice PAC gave $474,000 to Hard Knocks Strategies. This includes a $250,000 payment for “phone banking” on behalf of former Vice President Joe Biden.

How did a tiny Lauderhill business become the Florida electoral hub for George Soros?

According to their website, Hard Knocks Strategies is “the go-to integrated strategy firm in Florida for mobilizing Democratic voters statewide, with a proven track record of delivering groundbreaking, winning campaigns.” Well, it’s certainly the “go-to” firm for George Soros.

What exactly does Hard Knocks Strategies do? According to their website, “Formed in 2018, Hard Knocks made history twice over in our first electoral cycle, and deployed over 3000 staff out of 13 offices across the state of Florida, from the Panhandle to the Keys.”

REDBROWARD asked Itohan “Stephanie” Ighodaro for comment. While she was involved in the 2018 election cycle, Ighodaro told REDBROWARD she was no longer affiliated with Hard Knocks Strategies. She said she gave control of the company over to Eric Brakken. Ighodaro said she would provide Brakken with our contact information.

According to LinkedIn, Eric Brakken of EJB Strategies is the former executive director of SEIU Florida.

According to 2020 Federal campaign records, the SEIU PAC paid $592,076 to Hard Knocks Strategies. State records show the SEIU political committee gave $296,218.23 to Hard Knocks Strategies. How will Hard Knocks Strategies spent that $888,000 this cycle?

Is Hard Knocks Strategies a private company or part of a workers union?

Why is George Soros and the SEIU spending so much money in Broward?
