Maria O’Donnell Called Lighthouse Point Police To Report Mom & Kids Putting Up Opponent’s Signs

Once again, Maria Corvaia O’Donnell called Lighthouse Point Police to report political opponents’ campaign tactics. O’Donnell, Broward queen of the unhinged campaign rant, is running for Lighthouse Point mayor. On Presidents Day, February 20, 2017, Maria O’Donnell called police to warn them a mom and her two kids were “zipping” around town with Mayor Glenn Troast signs?!?!

Maria O’Donnell’s latest call to the LHP PD was made at 1:32pm on a national holiday. O’Donnell told the dispatcher, “There’s a golf cart running around Lighthouse Point putting Troast signs in the roundabout by the marina and all other public property areas.”

When asked if she got the tag number of the golf cart, O’Donnell said no.

When asked what it looked like, O’Donnell said “I have no idea.”

When asked the color the golf cart, Maria O’Donnell claim clean. She admitted she never saw it.

Maria O’Donnell said, “My friend saw it and then she called me and said you need to call LHP because they’re putting it in medians. And I looked outside and I see a sign in the median.”

O’Donnell could not even give an exact location for the golf cart menace! “You know the roundabout? There’s one there and she’s zipping on east. So she’s headed to the marina,” O’Donnell said.

O’Donnell said the driver was a white female with two children. She said, “I was told she had 2 [kids] and that she was putting signs in public areas.”

O’Donnell never identified her friend. When asked if she wanted an officer to contact her, O’Donnell said, “No, I trust you guys.”

Last week, REDBROWARD exposed O’Donnell’s unhinged rant to a police dispatcher when told the public works department removed her signs from the public right of way.

O’Donnell said, “I don’t know what a right of way means?” O’Donnell asked how many of of her opponent’s signs were picked up. Then Maria O’Donnell demanded to speak to the Chief of Police. “I don’t like these tactics. Who do you report to?” she said.

At one point during the third phone call, Maria O’Donnell stops to yell at her children. “I am on the phone with these people,” she said. “They are attacking me! So give me a break!”

O’Donnell told the dispatcher, “I’ve got a huge mess over here. You know you caused a lot of stress for this family. We’re a Lighthouse Point family. What are you guys trying to do to us?”

During her fourth phone call to police, attorney Maria O’Donnell plays the sexism card. She told the female dispactcher, “I feel discriminated against because I’m a woman. I don’t know why you’re discriminating against me.”

Who does Maria Corvaia O’Donnell think she is? Why does she keep bothering Police with campaign issues?

When her signs were removed, she asked why her Lighthouse Point family was targeted. But on a national holiday, Maria O’Donnell called police to track down a Lighthouse Point mom and two innocent kids on a golf cart.

Maria O’Donnell said she did not witness them doing anything. She used hearsay to file a report against a family because they might be supporting her opponent.

Imagine how those kids felt if the police pulled them over.

We’ve asked Maria O’Donnell for comment numerous times. She has yet to respond.


Unhinged 3: Maria O’Donnell Issued Veiled Threat To Lighthouse Point Police Chief Over “Damages” From Sober Home Statement

On February 10, 2017 Lighthouse Point Mayoral candidate Maria Corvaia O’Donnell issued a veiled threat to a police dispatcher over “damages” caused by a statement about sober homes. At 4:32pm on a Friday afternoon, O’Donnell called the Lighthouse Point Police Department. “This is attorney Maria O’Donnell and I’d like to speak with the chief of police, please,” she said.

Fifteen minutes later, the dispatcher told Maria O’Donnell that Chief Russ Licata was “very busy” and he would call her back. At this point, O’Donnell begins making demands.

“This conversation, if it doesn’t happen now, could cause me damages. He put a blast out to the public that I believe is inaccurate,” O’Donnell said.

O’Donnell is referring to a statement by the Chief regarding O’Donnell’s wildly inaccurate claims about sober homes.

Maria O’Donnell was upset her campaign issue was undermined in a message sent to residents. She said, “I believe it’s detrimental to my mayoral campaign and I want it amended immediately!”

O’Donnell began to use legal buzzwords signaling a possible lawsuit. “If he doesn’t want to address it at this time I just want to let him know that it’s damaging…damaging to my political campaign,” she continued.

“The only time this could be remedied would be now. The kind of remedy if this is indeed inaccurate, and by inaccurate I mean not factually true, the time to remedy is now,” she said.

O’Donnell demanded Chief Licata issue another statement. She said, “A blast must go out and it must state the truth of the facts!”

Minutes later, O’Donnell calls back to complain the Chief has failed to call her. The dispatcher reminds her it’s been less than ten minutes since her last call. “I still haven’t heard anything…obviously I’m getting ready for Keepers Day,” she said.

Then, O’Donnell quizzes the dispatcher. She said, “Are you aware of the sober home on 46th Street?” The dispatcher tries to explain he just answers the phone. “That wasn’t the question,” she barked. “Are you aware of sober home on 46th Street?”

The dispatcher says he is not aware of any facts related to sober homes.

Will Maria O’Donnell treat police employees like this if she’s elected mayor?

Why is she bothering the Police Chief with her political problems?

Who is she to demand anything from any city employee?

Why is she repeatedly tying up police telephone lines with her campaign silliness?

Lighthouse Point voters deserve answers before the March 14th election.
