We were alerted by a Broward Patriot that a relatively new organization, Floridians First, that was started by a local Personal Injury Attorney Gabriel Jose Carrera who was previously part of Tea Party Fort Lauderdale during the Broward Tea Party hey day started a private page to recall Republican State Committeeman Richard “Dick” Denapoli. The page looks like its in draft and not completed since the charges for the recall has NOT been listed. Carrera has been threatening a recall through Floridians First for quite a while in his political strategy meetings and his monthly Freedom Corner MAGA rallies. We here are excited that someone has grown a pair to start action or at the least educate the public on the RINO problem in Broward County. It is NOT known when this page will be live for Republicans to sign the recall petition. We here at Drain Broward swamp (DBS) will keep tabs on this page for the recall.

The MAGA, America First, Tea Party, U.S. Constitutional conservatives are all in unity against the enemy within the Republican party. Problem is that there are many NEW conservatives that have started groups thinking they are working with conservatives but in fact they are working with snakes. Trump talked about the snakes in his Sarasota, Florida SAVE AMERICA rally. Michael Rares at South Florida First, a self declared Q’Anon believer, jumped into Broward Politics in May 2021 after Candidate Darlene Swaffar gave Rares access to the South Florida First. Rares has admitted receiving assistance for the organization and for Swaffar’s campaign from Richard Denapoli the RINO. Credit to Mr. Rares for scrubbing his site of all pro-Denapoli political articles and replacing it with the precinct Project agenda of filling up the local GOP with activists. We here at DBS invite Mr. Rares to reject Denapoli publicly for the RINO that in our opinion he is as an elected official for the republican Party that have violated his oath of office and his party’s loyalty oath! Once Floridians First removes Denapoli all Republican organisations must work to get the 250,000 Republican votes out for Gov Ron DeSantis in 2022 and Donald Trump in 2024!

Republican State Committeeman Richard “Dick” Denapoli took in large amount of cash reimbursements as shown in the Broward County Supervisor of Elections website, but his opponents question the integrity demanding proof in the form of receipts for mailers and robocalls.

Looks like in this Supervisor of Elections (SOE) filed expense report the Broward County Republican State Committeeman only donated $100 but, reimbursed himself close to $7,985.96 in expenses. Mr. Denapoli is a millionaire who spent around $80,000 to obtain Republican votes to get elected to the State Committeeman position that does NOT pay a salary. The Volunteer position is for those who have a sense of giving back to the community politically through their good will. Many in the MAGA community are rumored to be upset after hearing the Mr. Denapoli spent large amounts of their own wealth to obtain a prestigious seat such as State Committeeman. These same people become quite emotionally upset finding out that the report filed as presented above that Mr. Denapoli requests reimbursements for traveling and self promotion. This is just another piece of information that stacks up against Denapoli’s character in our opinion.

One of Richard Denapoli’s “mailers” specifically states that its a NO COST platform! If his mailers are free why is Richard Denapoli taking $$$$ from the Republican Party for mailers? These are questions that need to be answered immediately. BREC should be asking these questions especially BREC’s Treasurer who is a staunch Richard Denapoli supporter. Please see the bottom of the mailer depicted below. If you want to view the whole mailer please click here! Who will stand up to Denapoli and call him on the carpet??? It is time that the members of BREC call Denapoli out and remove him for violating his Republican Loyalty Oath if this below is proven to be true in our opinion. These are unanswered questions that demand a response.

It is well known that as the Elected State Committeeman the job entitles assisting candidates and the local Republicans’ Executive Committee. At the time of filing this report it is unknown if DeNapoli has has ever raised funds for the local GOP to assist local candidates. It is known that Denapoli along with his Republican State Committeewoman Michelle Merrill raised a large amount of cash by booking and paying a speaker fee to have General Flynn speak for a military charity. You can read the whole story on that here where two (2) sitting U.S. Florida Congressmen walked away from the event when they initially were informed that the Broward Republican Executive Committee (BREC) was hosting the event. They were informed via Drain Broward Swamp (DBS) that the event was actually being hosted by a FOR-PROFIT Corporation.

Richard with long time

The Article reported as follows:

“According to a source very close to one of the congressmen, the congressman in question was under the impression that this was a fundraiser for veterans put on by the questionable Broward County Republican Executive Committee (BREC) because Michelle Merrell, the group’s state committeewoman allegedly misrepresented herself when she pitched the event to him.

This event is not sanctioned by the Broward Republican Party, rather it’s put together by a fly-by-night Florida corporation— South Florida Conservative Coalition, LLc —that was set up by Merrell less than two months ago. But in looking at the fundraising email promoting the event, one would think that it was fully sanctioned by the local Republican Party. Who wouldn’t think that this was an official Broward GOP event?”

In our opinion we question whether DeNapoli with a history of being a long time Democrat actually has the best interest of the Republican Party in Broward County and that of the whole state of Florida. The reimbursements as reported above is just an additional weight of evidence against the character of Mr. Denapoli. We further believe that this elected official in his capacity as a Republican in the leadership of the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) should be doing more to push the agenda of President Trump instead of secretly blocking strong conservative voices and policies in the MAGA community. This has been confirmed by unnamed sources but here at DBS must advise that this piece of information is rumored and we are promised that evidence will later be provided so take the following with a grain of thought; that because Richard Denapoli refused to sign off on a request for a Broward County Trump Club formation the group requesting was denied. That the denial was sent to the potential club founder from then BREC Chairman George Moraitis on his law firm letterhead. The letter allegedly contained that due to one of the two attorneys not signing off the Trump club request to form a Republican group is denied. Out of the two attorneys at the time referenced in the letter on of them signed and the second attorney that refused to sign off was no other than our current Republican State Committeeman Richard “Dick” Denapoli. Again, This was provided by an unnamed source that has intimate knowledge of the event thus give it the weight that it deserves in your evaluation of Richard Denapoli. We here try to be as accurate as possible.

Lastly, Mr Denapoli’s supporters at the “South Florida First” political activist group have posted stories on their webpage promoting Denapoli’s political BREC positions and posting articles attacking Tom Powers the current BREC chair. It is important to note that the BREC Treasurer Charles Solak and Republican State Committeewoman Michelle Merrill filed a Republican Party grievance against Tom Powers for frivlous offenses. Both are part of the Richard Denapoli support group. More importantly, these two grievances’ go the the committee that Richard Denapoli chairs for the RPOF. In our opinion this smells to high heaven. Looking at South Florida First as recently as last night it seems these two specific support stories have been scrubbed from their website. The website of South Florida First is managed and run by Mr. Michael Rares a self-confessed QAnon enthusiast. Michael Rares admits to having multiple lengthy conversations with Richard Denapoli all the while the news section of South Florida First posts pro-Richard Denapoli articles. One of those posts was a direct mailer that was a mass email sent out and paid for by Richard DeNapoli, Broward Republican State Committeeman. According to Wikipedia, “QAnon is a disproven far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satanic, cannibalistic pedophiles operate a global child sex trafficking ring and conspired against former President Donald Trump during his term in office. QAnon has been described as a cult.”

Drain Broward Swamp does not know why “South Florida First” took down the pro-Denapoli news articles but, we all pray that this newly formed political group see the light that RINO Denapoli is a swamp creature in the Broward County political swamp that needs to GO!

-Drain Broward Swamp-

DBS does not know why South Florida First took the pro-Denapoli news articles down but, we all pray that this newly formed group see’s the light that Denapoli is a swamp creature in the Broward County political swamp that needs to go. Sources inside the Ron DeSantis for Governor campaign have made it known that Richard Denapoli is one of the greatest blocks in Broward County for Republican support. There is an estimated 250,000 Republican voters in Broward County. BREC under Richard Denapoli and George Moraitis brag that they turned out in 2020 Trump Presidential election an estimated 34% of the Republican vote. DBS asks what happed to the majority (66%) of the 250,000 republican Votes.
