Broward Republican Party Official Richard DeNapoli Whines Over “RINO” Questions, Yet He Never Explained His “Conservative” Resume To Party Faithful

Richard DeNapoli

Republican State Committeeman Richard DeNapoli spent Tuesday night trying to convince party faithful that the Broward GOP leadership was “RINO”-free. DeNapoli’s declaration was met with resounding boos and even cries of “liar” from the crowd at a Pompano Beach restaurant. “RINO” (Republican In Name Only) is a pejorative term used against less-than-conservative Republicans. REDBROWARD posted the exclusive video of DeNapoli at a Tuesday Jews For Trump event.

After video was shared among party activists, DeNapoli tried to do damage control. DeNapoli posted a post-midnight screed in an obscure online chat group where he called attacks on him “fake news.” On Facebook, DeNapoli was quick to scold party members who shared negative stories about him. DeNapoli told one Republican woman, “Why would you post that fake news garbage?”

DeNapoli has fought off the RINO tag since he was accused of supporting Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio in the US Senate race.

In 2018, REDBROWARD reported on a series of issues which called into question DeNapoli’s claim to be a staunch conservative. On Tuesday, DeNapoli claimed he was “America First before it was cool to be America First.”

Our original 2018 is below. We report, you decide.

Tea Party To BlameFor Debt Crisis? Watch Broward DEM Complain That @AllenWest Too Focused on “Debt Ceiling”

Franco Ripple

The Latest bit of Democrat AstroTurf: The Debt Crisis and Credit Downgrade is the fault of the Tea Party; Somehow the Tea Party and their Republican supporters distracted folks in Washington D.C. from focusing on economic solutions…blah. blah. blah.

Well, back on July 21, 2011 (less than a month ago), Franco Ripple, vice president of communications Florida Young Democrats, went on the “internationally syndicated” (i.e internet) The David Pakman show. Ripple, an aide to Broward County Commissioner Kristin Jacobs, and the host mock Congressman Allen West and Michelle Bachmann for spending all their time talking about the debt ceiling; They’d rather have them talk about silly things like whether Debbie Wasserman Schultz is “vile”.

This wouldn’t be Mr. Ripple’s first foray into astro turf. Back in February, he was a driving force behind the union-backed “Awake The State” rallies aimed at Governor Rick Scott.

(watch for the Mitch Ceasar cameo)

Ripple, a former organizer with Obama For America (OFA), was the new media director for Fair Districts.Org; They’re the fine folks behind amendments 5 & 6 and the current redistricting mess.

No wonder they weren’t focused on the debt ceiling crisis…
