Anabelle Lima Taub Wins Hallandale Beach Hand Recount

After the hand recount on Thursday, Hallandale Beach Commissioner Anabelle Lima Taub maintained her lead over challenger Cynthia Cabrera. It took dozens of workers about an hour to sort through more than 14,000 ballots cast in the Seat 3 race. Cabrera picked up just one vote.

Despite being a political newcomer, Cynthia Cabrera had an army of lobbyists and elected officials observing the recount. Lobbyist Evan Ross appeared to coordinate the volunteer forces which included Hallandale Beach Commissioner Michele Lazarow, disgraced former Broward County Commissioner Scott Cowan and State Representative Joe Geller. Cabrera told the Broward canvassing board that Geller was her legal representative.

Lima Taub was represented by attorney Barbara Stern.

Hallandale Beach Commissioner Michele Lazarow Denies Calling Black Campaign Workers “Hoodlums” (VIDEO)

Black Campaign Workers Claim Michele Lazarow Called Them “Hoodlums”

According to four witnesses, Hallandale Beach Commissioner Michele Lazarow called two young black campaign workers “hoodlums” at early voting on Tuesday. A volunteer working for a non-Hallandale Beach candidate told REDBROWARD that Lazarow called the men “hoodlums” after they spoke with a worker for Hallandale Beach Commissioner Anabelle Lima-Taub. Lazarow and her controversial lobbyist/consultant Evan Ross have attacked Lima-Taub for more than a year for her support of Hallandale Beach Police among other issues.

After asking this reporter if he was drinking, Lazarow said the men were lying. Lazarow denied calling them “hoodlums.” Both men were six feet away from Lazarow when she made her denial.

A frustrated Lazarow decided to flee the scene instead of discussing the matter further with the witnesses.

Of note, Lazarow handed her campaign materials to Hallandale Beach candidate Cynthia Cabrera.

Cabrera is running against Lima-Taub. She is featured prominently in attacks on Lima-Taub by a political committee operated by Evan Ross.

Earlier Tuesday, Cabrera told REDBROWARD she has no relationship with Evan Ross, his committee or Michele Lazarow.

Miami Herald: Private Eye’s Ex-Girlfriend Claims Hallandale Beach Mayor Keith London Behind GPS Tracker Story

The latest news on Hallandale Beach Keith London comes from a blockbuster story in the Miami Herald:

“Then came the plot twist. Gimenez looked straight at Mayor Keith London and said: ‘By the way Mayor, this is the first time I see you in person.’ The only other time she had seen him, Gimenez said, was on her ‘ex-boyfriend Victor Elbeze’s monitor when he told me [Gimenez] that you [London] hired him to track your colleagues.’

London cut her off to reply: ‘No no no no, I’m sorry. I’ll correct that afterward.’ Later in the meeting, he denied it all, pointing to Elbeze’s testimony about the developer as proof.”
