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.

Marlon Bolton’s Blue Broward? Tamarac Commissioner Answers Telephone For Tallahassee Political Committee Tied To Mysterious 2020 Voters Guide & Website

Our Blue Broward?

Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton answered the telephone number listed for a Tallahassee based political committee tied to a mysterious 2020 voters guide and website. On Monday afternoon, REDBROWARD called the Conservative Governance PAC, a political committee based at a PAK Mail store at 1563 Capital Circle S.E. in Tallahassee. The State records list Malucci Joseph as the chairperson, treasurer and registered agent of Conservative Governance PAC.

Last month, REDBROWARD revealed Malucci Joseph, a singer and active participant at services held at Marlon Bolton’s Praise Experience Worldwide Outreach church in North Lauderdale is tied to other political committees which support Bolton or his allies. These include Go Tamarac Go PAC and Residents United PAC.

In December, Elijah Manley, a Democrat running for the Florida State House District 94 seat, made two payments to Happy Feet Advertising, a Margate company. Over the last year, REDBROWARD documented the deep ties between Marlon Bolton and Happy Feet Advertising owner Carl Williams. Instead of using Happy Feet’s Margate address, the Manley campaign listed the 1563 Capital Circle S.E. address used by Malucci Joseph and Conservative Governance PAC. State business records show this Tallahassee address is also used by 100 Volunteers Of Florida, a fictitious corporation owned by Happy Feet Advertising of Margate.

OUR BLUE BROWARD

During the November 2020 election, some Broward residents received the “Our Florida Democracy” voters guide. The guide is still available on the Our Blue Broward website. The guide states it was produced by the Our Blue Democracy political committee located at 1563 Capital Circle S.E. address in Tallahassee.

The guide endorsed most of the Democrat candidates on the 2020 ballot. But a few candidates received special notice including pictures alongside Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. In addition to being pictured with the Presidential nominee, these special candidates received their own sections on the guide.

Who were these candidates?

Marlon Bolton, former Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness, the late Congressman Alcee Hastings, North Lauderdale Commissioner Regina Martin and Tamarac Commissioner Elvin Villalobos.

REDBROWARD previously reported on the help Martin and Villalobos received from political committees and companies tied to Carl Williams and Marlon Bolton.

Federal records show Our Blue Democracy was formed in September 2020 by its treasurer Malucci Joseph. Our Blue Democracy used the same address and telephone number as the Conservative Converance PAC operated by Malucci Joseph.

Federal campaign reports show a September 18, 2020 contribution of $5,000 by Malucci Joseph. Four days later, Our Blue Democracy paid $3,309.34 to Minuteman Press of Coral Springs for mailing services and $900 to Xpress Color of Lauderdale Lakes for printing services. These are the same companies used by Residents United PAC, Conservative Governance PAC and Go Tamarac Go PAC.

REDBROWARD wanted to ask Broward resident Malucci Joseph why she opened so many Tallahassee based political committees.

This reporter called the Tallahassee telephone number listed for both committees: (850) 220-7853.

But Malucci Joseph did not answer the phone.

MARLON BOLTON ANSWERS REDBROWARD PHONE CALL

“Hello?” Marlon Bolton said.

“Marlon?”

“Who’s this?” Bolton said.

This reporter identified himself and the publication and asked Bolton why he was answering a telephone number listed for two Tallahassee based political committees.

“Tom Lauder, I don’t consider you a real reporter?”

We stated that’s his opinion and asked what his role is with the Conservative Governance PAC, the Our Blue Democracy guide and the Our Blue Broward website.

Bolton said, “Tom Lauder, do you have any other questions, not related to these PACs?”

We asked Bolton if he had recently hired an attorney.

“Tom Lauder, do you have any other questions?”

We asked if he had been interviewed by any Federal, State or local law enforcement agents.

“Goodbye, Tom Lauder,” Bolton said.

Other questions we had had for Bolton:

Why do so many business associates of Marlon Bolton operate political committees based in Tallahassee?

Why is Malucci Joseph spending so much of her money to fund these committees?

Don’t Tamarac residents deserve real answers from Marlon Bolton?
