Charlie Crist Draws Small Crowd At Broward Dem “Souls To The Polls” Rally In Fort Lauderdale

It was a very “late arriving” crowd for Charlie Crist at the Broward Democrats “Souls To The Polls” event in Fort Lauderdale. Instead of joining Democrat officials for the traditional march down Sistrunk Boulevard to the African American Research Library, Crist joined a stage full of NAACP officials who gathered before the march. Surprisingly, Crist spoke without a fan.

The parking lot contained many campaign volunteers but very few actual voters.

Officials who actually marched in the Souls To The Polls were Broward Property Appraiser Marty Kiar, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Congresswoman Sheila Cherfilus McCormick. Heck, even Republican Congressional candidate Joe Budd marched to the library.

Guess Charlie forgot his walking shoes.

Broward Supervisor Of Elections Office Allowed Democrat Rally To Be Held Less Than Fifty Feet From Ballot Drop Box

Charlie Crist Attends Broward Rally Less Than 150 Feet From Ballot Drop Box

On Sunday, a Broward Supervisor Of Elections Office (SOE) employee left his post at the African-American Research Library in Fort Lauderdale to scold REDBROWARD. The gentleman, who was guarding the ballot drop off box in the parking lot, told this reporter that taking photographs were forbidden within 150 feet of the polling place. This employee was not concerned about a giant rally for Democrat candidates less than fifty feet from the ballot box.

A small parking lot approximately 45 feet from the ballot drop box was the setting for a partisan “Souls To The Polls” rally. A disc jokey played music from a large mobile stage (owned by Broward County government) emblazoned with the NAACP logo. Some workers for the Charlie Crist campaign sat under a red tent on the east end of the stage. On the west end, a large tent belonging to the Zeta Alpha Lambda fraternity was surrounded by large barbecue grills.

Less than a hour after a Broward SOE employee harassed REDBROWARD, Democrat gubernatorial candidates Charlie Crist and Nikki Fried were manning the barbecue grills.

Other Democrat candidates posed for pictures with the gentlemen of Zeta Alpha Lambda.

As REDBROWARD reported yesterday, Broward SOE workers allowed DNC & Broward Democrat Party official Grace Carrington to pass out party endorsement cards less than 150 feet away from the Coral Springs early voting polling place. Now, Broward SOE employees clearly stood by as a small carnival was set up less than 50 feet from a ballot drop box.

Does ballot security mean anything to Broward Supervisor Of Elections Joe Scott?

Why are Broward SOE workers so angry when asked to enforce Florida elections laws?

What else is going on with Broward votes?
