Another day, another big endorsement for Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti. The Broward Police Benevolent Association (PBA) has endorsed Lamberti over former Republican Scott Israel (D-Not Really). Expect the Israel dirty tricksters to spring into action any day now.
Here’s the Lamberti campaign release:
Broward County, Fla. – Today, Sheriff Al Lamberti is honored to receive the endorsement from the Broward County Police Benevolent Association (PBA). In Broward County, the PBA serves more than 2500 members and over 26,000 members strong throughout the State of Florida with the Florida Police Benevolent Association.

In supporting Sheriff Al Lamberti’s re-election as Broward County Sheriff in 2012, the PBA determined that Sheriff Lamberti “best reflects the interest and shares the same professionalism among law enforcement and within the Broward Sheriff’s Office with his experience and leadership qualities that the PBA promotes within the association,” said Patrick Hanrahan, President, Police Benevolent Association. We look forward for many years of a working relationship with the Sheriff and the Broward Sheriff’s Office”, expressed Pat Hanrahan.

The campaign treasurer reports covering August 10, 2012 to September 14, 2012 were due at the Broward Supervisor of Elections office on Friday September 21, 2012. Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti submitted his report on Friday September 21, 2012. Brenda Snipes’ website shows no September 21, 2012 report for his Democrat opponent Scott Israel (D-former Republican). It is 11 days late. Who is to blame? Did Israel forget? Did Snipes’ IT department forget to post it?
