Screenshots Show Nick Sortal Tried To Hide Late-Night Messages Sent To Plantation Resident

Councilman Nick Sortal tried to hide late-night Facebook messages he sent to a female Plantation resident after she criticized his recent behavior. Fortunately, screenshots of Sortal’s bizarre messages were provided to REDBROWARD. As we reported yesterday, Nick Sortal made a late-night phone to former supporter Susanna Bott after she asked him to quit his campaign for Mayor of Plantation. Sortal told Bott that accusations he made inappropriate sexual and racial remarks to a City of Plantation employee were “untrue.”

Sortal’s denials came just five days AFTER a Plantation City Council meeting where he admitted to making remarks about his penis and his satisfaction that “Plantation will never have a black mayor.”

Late Night With Nick Sortal

In the now “unsent” Facebook message, Sortal claimed, “Their ‘facts’ are twisted and untrue. I am very upset about this. My [wife] was there. Can we please talk and would you hold off on posting until I get a fair chance to talk?”

“Their statements are not true!!” Sortal said.

In a second message, Sortal says his wife would have “slapped me silly right then and there.”

At some point after sending the messages to Bott, Sortal utilized a Facebook Messenger feature that allows a user to “unsend” a message.

Unprofessional. Unbecoming.

Now, possibly unhinged.

Nick Sortal wants a “fair chance” to speak the truth?

On June 22, 2022, Nick Sortal opened the Plantation City Council meeting with a three minute statement. He had the floor. No interruptions.

During that three minutes, Sortal admitted, for the third time on the record, to making the inappropriate sexual and racial remarks.

Why did he admit to both comments if they were untrue?

He claimed he was being sarcastic when he told a black employee, “Oh good, Plantation will never have a black mayor.” Nick Sortal said it was a tone deaf joke.

How can it be twisted if he admitted to it?

Why is Nick Sortal and his Council ally Denise Horland so desperate to keep the story under wraps?

The kids these days call it “gaslighting.”

Do they think intimidation tactics will keep Plantation residents from learning the truth?

Plantation voters deserve better, right?

Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton Wants You To Pick A Side

Sounds like trouble in paradise for Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton (D-Big Baby). In a Saturday afternoon Facebook post, Bolton appears to question the loyalty of his followers. Bolton wrote:

If you have to question what side they are on, then they are not on your side.

Sadly, Marlon Bolton is never on the side of Tamarac residents.

Marlon Bolton is on the side of Marlon Bolton.

Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick Admits Father Called Opponent On Telephone Belonging To Employee

Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick

Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick admits her father called one of her Democratic opponents on a telephone belonging to her medical services company. Yesterday, REDBROWARD revealed Emmanuel Morel told Sun-Sentinel editors and reports about a phone call he received from Cherfilus-McCormick’s father, Gabriel Smith. A third candidate, Elvin Dowling provided details of the exchange which occurred during a Sun-Sentinel interview of Democratic candidates for U.S. Congress CD 20.

According to Dowling, “Emanuel Morel informed us all that he received a call on Sunday evening from someone identifying themselves as the father of Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick. He said that the person threatened him against running against his daughter (over the course of two separate phone calls that were apparently witnessed by members of Mr. Morel’s campaign staff). Mr. Morel stated that he felt his life was threatened and that he has contacted the FBI who is investigating the calls as we speak.” When asked by a reporter about the call, Cherfilus-McCormick denied any knowledge of any phone calls to Morel.

When Morel produced a telephone number, Cherfilus-McCormick said the number looked familiar. According to Dowling, “At first she stated she did not and then stated that she has a lot of numbers connected to her campaign that were similar in nomenclature and it could be one of hers but she was not sure.”

On Thursday, Emmanuel Morel appeared on the Race And The Races webcast hosted by Narnike Grant and Sandra Cherfrere. Just minutes into the show, Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick joined the show. She said she was “at a wedding” but wanted to respond to Morel.

Cherfilus-Mccormick said, “No one at my campaign has contacted or spoke to [Morel].”

She said, “The number you put out is actually another employee’s number…she’s been getting threats and had to cancel her line.”

Cherfilus-McCormick said she discussed the matter with her parents. “No one threatened you. And because of that, we are pursuing legal, um, against you for slander and for going on every show and talking.”

Then, Cherfilus-McCormick attacked Elvin Dowling for tipping off REDBROWARD about the matter. “Elvin Dowling called some kind of Republican blogger who insert themselves into a Democratic primary is disgusting,” she said.

Under questioning, Cherfilus-McCormick told Narnike Grant that her parents did speak with Morel. She said Morel was discussed at a weekend meeting between her parents and Haitian ministers. According to Cherfilus-McCormick, someone at that meeting said, “someone should talk to Morel.”

When Cherfilus-McCormick insisted no one from her “campaign” called Morel, host Sandra Cherfrere asked if the phone belonged to a Trinity Health employee. Cherfilus-McCormick stated the phone was assigned to “nurses or staff” and the Caller ID would appear as “Trinity.”

She admitted the call came from that number.

The Sun-Sentinel interview occurred Wednesday afternoon. Elvin Dowling contacted REDBROWARD at 5:48PM on Wednesday. REDBROWARD called the Trinity cell phone at 7:10PM. A telephone company recording stated the number was no longer in service. The REDBROWARD story was published minutes later.

How could the Trinity employee receive “threats” if the number was already out of service before the world knew the number?

Why were Cherfilus-McCormick’s parents calling another candidate in the first place?

While they may not be campaign employees, Cherfilus-McCormick’s father and mother wore campaign shirts at a candidate debate on Friday evening at the University of Fort Lauderdale.
