Fort Lauderdale Mayor Wannabe Kenneth Cooper Not Following Election Laws Governing Campaign Contributions?

Two weeks ago, REDBROWARD shared video footage of Fort Lauderdale Mayor candidate Kenneth Cooper violating electioneering laws at the Coral Ridge Mall early voting location. Cooper, a seasoned Democrat candidate, approached voters at the entrance of the mall in violation of the 150 foot zone determined by Supervisor of Elections officials. A concerned resident confronted Cooper three times before returning with an elections office employee.

Cooper claimed ignorance. One day later, members of Cooper’s campaign mocking the rule in videos posted on Facebook.

Now, Kenneth Cooper appears to be violating another important part of the Florida elections rulebook.

Before accessing the main website, visitors to Kenneth Cooper’s online site are met with a screen asking for a campaign contribution. Visitors are asked how much they want to contribute, if they wish to make it an ongoing contribution and whether they wish to use a credit card, PayPal or Apple Pay.

Just one problem.

Florida law prohibits accepting and using campaign contributions this close to election day.

Appeals for campaign contributions were supposed to end October 29th at midnight. It’s spelled out on page 29 of the Florida candidate rule handbook.

As of October 31, Kenneth Cooper’s official website is asking for campaign money.

Why Is George Soros’ PAC Endorsing Coral Springs Commission Candidate Nancy Metayer?

Controversial billionaire George Soros is no stranger to funding far-left groups and candidates all over the world. Soros is a major player in U.S. politics with his funding of progressive and Democrat candidates. Over the last decade, Soros has funded lower level campaigns on local level such as Secretary of State races and district attorney races in big U.S. cities.

In August, REDBROWARD revealed George Soros’ Win Justice PAC backed Joe Kimok, a far-left Democrat running for Broward State Attorney. Kimok was beaten by Harold Pryor who faces off against Republican Gregg Rossman next week.

In September, REDBROWARD revealed George Soros sent close to $7 million dollars to a small corporation in Fort Lauderdale to help mold Broward County politics.

But even with all the money he sent to Broward, it appears George Soros finally dipped his toe into municipal politics with his backing of Nancy Metayer for Coral Springs City Commission.

Why does a far-left billionaire with the ear of global leaders care about Coral Springs politics?

Soros’ backing would explain why 90% of Nancy Metayer’s campaign contributions come from progressive sources outside of the City of Coral Springs.

This includes support of far-left politicians like Broward Mayor Dale Holness, Tamarac Commissioner Mike Gelin, Plantation Councilwoman Denise Horland and Hallandale Beach Vice Mayor Sabrina Javellana.

Earlier this week, Nancy Metayer refused to discuss her plans to “defund” the Coral Springs police budget.

George Soros is a key funded of the “defund the police” movement.

Could that be the reason?

Coral Springs voters deserve answers before Tuesday November 3rd.

Blue Broward? Red Hot Republican Enthusiasm At Early Voting As Trump Supporters Outnumber Democrats

Coral Springs Early Voting, Then & Now

Even during last week’s torrential downpours, enthusiastic Trump supporters waved signs and flags all across Broward early voting locations. Last weekend, local progressive groups, including Dream Defenders and Democratic Socialists of America, tried to counter huge gatherings of Trump supporters in Fort Lauderdale and Coral Springs. They were vastly outnumbered.

Even seasoned political operatives on both sides of the aisle cannot believe the response of Team Donald Trump.

On Thursday, REDBROWARD toured reliably Democrat early voting locations in western Broward County.

Eight years ago, the lines to vote wrapped around libraries in Coral Springs, Pembroke Pines and Tamarac. This year, Democrat volunteers sat around bored while watching Trump fans dance in the parking lots.
