Broward School Board candidate Donna Korn joined us on the True Broward: Open Phones podcast last night to discuss her suspension by Governor Ron DeSantis, the Statewide Grand Jury, Parkland and her campaign. Her opponent, Allen Zeman, declined an invitation to join the show.
Broward County School Board candidate Allen Zeman hired a company owned by the “protégé” of Roger Stone, election records show. Currently, Zeman enjoys the support of the media and the Democrat establishment in his bid to replace Donna Korn. So why hire a company run by the man Stone called “one of the best young political consultants in Florida?”
According to his August 2022 campaign treasurer’s report, Zeman paid $8,450 to JHSM Holdings of New Jersey for “direct voter contact.” Elnatan Rudolph is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of JHSM Holdings. Located in Teaneck, New Jersey, JHSM Holdings provides text messaging services to political campaigns.
In an April 2018 interview, Rudolph said Stone brought him to Florida to work on State Senate campaigns. When asked if he was a Republican consultant, Rudolph said, “I tell people that depending on which state I am in – I am known as different things. In New York I was known as a Democratic Political Operative. In NJ, I was a councilmember with close ties to the Bergen County Democratic Party Chairman and in Florida I am most known as a Republican consultant.“
In 2018, the Sun-Sentinel reported the Friends of Ron DeSantis political committee “paid at least $268,000 for messaging services to a company owned by Elnatan Rudolph….”
The Sun-Sentinel justified its endorsement of Allen Zeman by stating Governor Ron DeSantis would replace Donna Korn with a Republican if she won. What do they think of Governor DeSantis and Zeman sharing the services of the same Republican consultant?
REDBROWARD exposed ties between Zeman and controversial former School Board member/lobbysit Neil Sterling. After our story was published, Zeman scrubbed Neil Sterling from his campaign website. Allen Zeman would rather hide his ties to Neil Sterling than answer simple questions.
Then, REDBROWARD revealed how Zeman told voters he made the fastest rise to the rank of Admiral in the history of the U.S. Navy. Just one problem, Allen Zeman never served in the U.S. Navy.
Allen Zeman really wants a seat on the Broward School Board. He claims to have a “laser-like” focus on ethics, but the choices he’s made during the campaign call that “focus” into question.
Broward voters deserve answers before the November election.
