Just when you thought Dale Holness couldn’t sink any lower. On Monday evening, a Broward voter received a robocall on behalf of Holness’ campaign for U.S. Congress. The woman on the phone call claimed to be Dale Holness’ daughter, Damara Holness.
Damara Holness is currently an inmate at the Federal prison in Marianna, Florida. Ms. Holness will be an inmate until September 2023.
According to the voter, the woman on the call identified herself as Damara Holness. The purported Damara Holness admitted to making “mistakes” but said her father “had nothing to do with them.”
So how did a Federal inmate participate in a campaign telephone call for Dale Holness?
Why is an inmate, who never returned $181,000 in cash to authorities, allowed to plan any role in a Federal election?
Shameless. Desperate. Low. These are the words to describe a man who would use his incarcerated daughter to win a political campaign.
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.
“ABSOLUTELY ISN’T ME OR MY FIRM”
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?
