Elections Workers Allow Broward Democrat Party Official To Violate 150ft Boundary At Early Voting In Coral Springs

Broward Supervisor of Elections Office (SOE) workers were oblivious as a Broward Democrat Party Official sat nearby handing out the official party palm card to voters at the Northwest Regional Library in Coral Springs. Florida law states all electioneering must be at least 150 feet from the entrance of a polling place. When setting up a polling place, one of the first things Broward SOE workers do is mark the 150 feet boundary.

On Sunday, REDBROWARD spotted Democratic National Committee Black Caucus Southern Regional Director Grace Carrington well within 150 feet of the library entrance. We watched as Carrington asked numerous voters if they wanted the offical Democratic Part card. Carrington sat in the shade while other candidates and volunteers melted in the 100 degree heat by the boundary set by SOE.

Carrington and two SOE workers convinced the supervisor on scene that Carrington was behind the line. Later, a disgruntled worker confirmed Carrington was violating the boundary. She moved further from entrance. Of course, Broward SOE workers were upset with REDBROWARD for pushing compliance with the law.

Broward Judge Candidate Tanner Demmery Doesn’t Want To Answer Questions About The Shady Voter Card Passed Out By His Volunteer

On the first day of early voting, Broward County judicial candidate did not want to answer questions about shady palm cards endorsing his campaign. When REDBROWARD caught up with him at the Northwest Regional Library in Coral Springs, Demmery cried “harassment” when asked about his appearance on the partisan card from the A Better Florida For All political committee. Demmery even asked a woman to call the police. As REDBROWARD exposed in January, the Palm Beach committtee is tied to controversial Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness.

The Holness-friendly group is using the palm card to promote Democrat candidates including Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson. Last week, Buddy Nevins at Broward Beat reported four non-partisan judicial candidates appeared on the latest card. They are Haccord James Curry, Stefanie Camille Moon, Jackie Powell and Tanner Channing Demmery.

“Partisan appeals judicial candidates’ ads are forbidden by the Florida Supreme Court Code of Judicial Conduct. Joint advertising by judicial candidates is also prohibited,” Nevins wrote.

On Friday, Omar Smith of A Better Florida For All told the Sun-Sentinel, “none of the candidates were picked because of financial ties to the political action committee or to any of Smith’s businesses, which perform campaign services.”

Demmery told the Sun-Sentinel, “[H]e had no idea why his name appeared on the Better Florida for All flier, though he did pay one of Smith’s contractors for campaign signs. Dennery said he was unaware of the connection between the contractor and Smith, and by extension the PAC, until after the flier began circulating in Tamarac.”


By last Friday, Tanner Channing Demmery was fully aware of the legal and ethical situation surrounding the A Better Florida For All card. But this week, a REDBROWARD reader sent a photograph of a Tanner Channing Demmery volunteer passing out this very card at early voting. Wearing an official Demmery campaign t-shirt, the female volunteer is shown with the card at the African American Research Library in Fort Lauderdale.

Demmery is running against Corey Amanda Cawthon for Broward County Judge.
