2016: Broward Elections Boss Brenda Snipes’ Questionable Campaign Money From Employees…
Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes accepted 25 contributions to her re-election worth up to $4,165 from employees at her office. Although it is a small fraction of her total contributions of roughly $49,000, her opponent David Brown said taking such donations is wrong.
“It’s unethical to take money from the people who work for you,” Brown said. “It can lead to allegations of favoritism in the office.”
Snipes camouflaged that the donors worked for her by not listing the employees’ workplace on the campaign financial forms.
Although the law only requires that the occupation of a contributor be listed on state forms, many other candidates list the workplace to offer voters more transparency. Snipes lists many as “administrator,” technically accurate but not in the spirit of full disclosure.
In addition to donating $500 to the re-election as illustrated below, Snipes’ executive assistant Fred Bellis is managing her campaign. and RedBroward has written posts about Bellis’ role in her campaign.
When challenged about her employees’ donations, Snipes told one endorsement meeting that she didn’t know the names or origins of her contributions, according to Brown. That is either unbelievable or she is more disengaged that critics ever imagined.
