Former Broward Republican Executive Committee Chairman Richard “Dick” Denapoli was formerly charged in a Republican Party of Florida grievance that was never formerly heard by the RPOF.

Stop Broward Republican Corruption!

Back In 2018 former Broward Republican Executive Committee (BREC) Chairman Richard Denapoli was formally accused of selling private and confidential BREC members’ information to Democrat candidates back in 2018. Recently, Drain Broward Swamp received documents that appear to be a grievance filed against Mr. Denapoli as well as two other alleged co-conspirators. On September 28, 2018 a grievance complaint against Mr. Denapoli was sent to George Riley the executive director of the Republican Party of Florida. In addition to Mr. Riley – copies were sent to Rep. Blaise Ingoglia, Chair RPOF, and Ben Gibson, RPOF counsel. A complete copy of the received grievance can be downloaded by scrolling to the bottom and clicking on the “DOWNLOAD” button above the Charlie Crist video where Mr. Denapoli supports Crist.

At the time of writing of this article Mr. Denapoli is the Republican State Committeeman and the Chairman of the RPOF Grievance Committee that hears all violations within the Republican Party throughout the State of Florida. One of the specific charges against Mr. Denapoli is that he violated his “Republican Loyalty Oath” as an executive officer and Committeeman for BREC. One of the many actions that Mr. Denapoli committed violating his loyalty oath was selling access to the email databases that was created by taking proprietary information that is privately and solely owned by BREC. This action was taken without the knowledge of BREC board or the many members within BREC. In the opinion of this writer, the selling of private Republican donor and membership lists to active Democrat candidates that are on the ballot violates the loyalty Oath of the Republican Party. Below is the unverified evidence of Richard Denapoli’s wrong doing. It is our personal belief that the grievance package sent to us 100% bonafide!

It is important to know that this grievance package that was delivered to Drain Broward Swamp has not been fully verified as authentic although it does appear as the official grievance that has been rumored in the last few years to have occurred. It is also important to point out that Mr. Denapoli denies any involvement or any guilt regarding this allegation. Unfortunately in the writer’s personal opinion it appears that Mr. Denapoli has lied to protect his decade old seat of power to the point he has even filed lawsuits against political opponents to stifle information and free speech.

In the September 28, 2018 filed a grievance the author alleges with proof of a redacted version of an email that was forwarded to him by a judicial candidate that was registered during the election in 2018 as an active Democrat party member. The name of that judicial candidate was Mr. Dale Miller who at the time was employed with the Broward County Public Defenders’ office. On Friday, July 27, 2018 Mr. Miller received an email from one of Richard Denapoli’s accomplices that read as shown below:

If you were around three years ago you would remember Rupert Tarsey’s name. He was the BREC Executive Secretary at the time of the solicitation. As reported in the Sun Sentinel, “Mr. Rupert Tumin Ditsworth of Beverly Hills — who is now Rupert Tarsey of Parkland — was charged in a felony complaint with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly beating an 18-year-old woman with a claw hammer. Ditsworth was 17. Police said the victim, a fellow student at Harvard-Westlake School, one of the nation’s most prestigious college-preparatory schools, was left with a broken leg and a broken nose. Her mother said the victim was struck 40 times and her scalp was split. Police said the teens had gone for a drive in Ditsworth’s 2000 Jaguar after school. The victim’s mother said she was invited to get smoothies after finishing an Advanced Placement exam. Ditsworth began talking about suicide and began striking her with the hammer, her mother told the Los Angeles Times.”

“The victim’s mother, a physician, described what she saw when she arrived at her daughter’s bedside. “Her hair and face were caked with blood,” she said. “On the left side, her head was shaped like a football.” The student newspaper at Harvard-Westlake reported that after she was released from the hospital, the victim attended the prom in her wheelchair and graduation on crutches.” There is an old saying that birds of a feather flock together; and Mr. Tarsey is one of the individuals mentioned in the grievance that was specifically filed against Republican Executive Chairman Richard Denapoli. It appears that at the time Tarsey was helping Mr. Denapoli sell the privileged information to active Democrat candidates. Mr. Tarsey was already on a one year probationary period imposed by the RPOF grievance committee in 2017 for wrongdoing.

The grievance document against Florida Republican State Committeeman Richard Denapoli further alleges that multiple emails from other judicial candidates, some whom have BREC endorsement, and from a consultant who manages several judicial campaigns stated it was common knowledge that Mr. Tarsey and Richard Denapoli were soliciting payment from other registered Democrat candidates for access for personal information that is proprietary and privileged to BREC. As Chairman of the Republican County Executive Committee – Mr. Denapoli appears to be abusing his position for monetary gain selling the private information that the local GOP acquired for its own private use. The individuals whom private information was peddled throughout the Broward County election to registered Democrat candidates were believing in good faith that their data was secure with the Broward County Republican executive committee. Placed in ordinary language Mr. Denapoli sold people’s’ private information without their knowledge or consent in our opinion.

The Democrat candidate was told to make the check out to “Praetorian Consulting” that is located in Tampa, Florida according to corporate records. Neither Mr. Denapoli, Mr. Tarsey, or the other Denapoli associates are listed as officers or directors according the Florida Department of Corporations. Mr. Tarsey’s email confirmed that Republican Chairman Richard Denapoli requested $500.00 for the Republican Donor and member’s list. Payment was to be sent to Mr. Denapoli’s associate home and NOT to the business address based in Tampa. Judicial Candidate Dale Miller made the ethical choice and rejected the offer. The Florida Judicial Cannons prevent a candidate running for judge to accept this type of help from officials of a political party. If only other Judicial Candidates and school Board candidates were as honorable as Mr. Miller maybe they could have governed much better on the Broward school board as they did instead of turning a blind eye to public political corruption.


Another allegation involved in the grievance is the endorsement of possible candidates that are registered Democrats in Broward County. It is important to note that judicial elections are non-partisan but it is clear from the historical voting record what party the judicial candidate espouses an ideology should they be elected to the bench. On Monday, July 23, 2018, there was a BREC monthly meeting where numerous Broward County judicial candidates were allowed to speak to the BREC members. During that meeting no motions were made to endorse any of the candidates that spoke. Two days later all the BREC members received an email stating that certain judicial candidates as well as candidates for school board were officially endorsed by BREC. The grievant states that of the eight judicial candidates name to only three were registered Republicans in one of those that were endorsed was the key vote on the 2000 cam at Seaboard that started the recount in Broward County of that year. Of the five Broward County school board candidates endorsed only two were Republicans. These endorsements were made unilaterally without the membership vote or the executive board voting to endorse Democrat candidates. It is the opinion of this writer that all Republicans in the state of Florida should be upset Calling for the RPOF or the Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to remove him immediately.


It is rumored within Republican circles that many complaints against Denapoli have been delivered to the Republican grievance board and dismissed without a hearing. RPOF Joe Gruters personally trusted and hand picked Denapoli as Chairman of the RPOF grievance committee. There have been multiple allegations against Denapoli that violate the Republican Loyalty Oath that has NOT seen the light of day. One of the biggest question to ask Joe Gruters, the bigwig of the RPOF, is why Chairman Denapoli did not recuse himself for the obvious conflict of interest? Many in the Republican community voice their belief that in 2018 there was an important election year and Gruters did not want to stain the elections with a trial. Responding to that rumor we ask what office was Denapoli running for that would have kept other Republicans from being elected? We are of the personal belief that hearing the grievance against Denapoli would have caused NO DAMAGE to the statewide and local Republican candidates in the 2018 elections.

Analysis: I cannot believe that these serious allegations did not result in the grievance committee having a trial where the evidence could be presented with Mr. Denapoli afforded the opportunity to respond so that a final decision could be made. Only those on the grievance committee and the Republican leadership knows why Mr. Denapoli’s is still in power and this grievance was never heard. It is our opinion that endorsing Democrat Socialist communist ideologues that are registered and promote the Democrat Party from a Republican executive committee should be run out of their Republican executive office. Where are the Republicans that believe in law in order? Where is Gov. DeSantis on this Republican who in our opinion is a bad Republican and a bad seed? Is it possible because of a looming election that the Republican Party boss Gruters did not want to ruffle the feathers of the establishment, country club, blueblood members? Using one’s position of power to enrich themselves to the detriment of those that placed their trust in the leadership is a great crime against Broward County Republicans, Florida Republicans, and the United States of America.

Richard will take selfies with MAGA superstars, but works against the America First and the Constitutional Conservative Community every time!

It is impossible to comprehend how people have tolerated a traitor who sold out for cold cash Republican endorsements to the opposing party. We here at Drain Broward Swamp would have been embarrassed if we had a reputation in the community for selling out private discretionary privileged data on trusting members of the Republican Party to Democrats. In our opinion, this action equals that of somebody in the military that gives away strategic secrets to the enemies. The president of the Republican party for the state of Florida should be ashamed of himself for tolerating such a snake within the Republican Party. I mentioned above in the article that birds of a feather flock together and it seems that the Republican Party of Florida is covering each other’s backs. What Florida needs more than ever today is a political revival to drain the swamp of snakes and other creatures that violate their loyalty oath. Drain Broward Swamp is standing with Trump to rid the Republican party of snakes like Denapoli!

Mr. Denapoli has been a controversial figure going back to 2008 even during the height of the tea party movement conservative individuals were calling for Mr. Denapoli to resign. Fast-forward to the present he is still in the Republican Party blocking and frustrating America first policies and candidates. With this I ask you to share this post on your social media, send it to those in power, email it or even print it out and mail it with a stamp on an envelope to make everyone aware of the rhino problems here in Broward County, Florida. Although Mr. Denapoli uses verbiage and rhetoric espoused by Donald Trump in his rallies he is not a Trump supporter (in our opinion). We were told that the Florida for Trump campaign filed two complaints with the Republican Party of Florida because the Broward executive committee under the leadership of Richard Denapoli denied it any assistance in the 2020 election. Donations were solicited and monies were raised under the auspices of getting Trump elected. If those monies were in fact spent why in a very important and controversial election did Broward County Republicans only produced 34% of the 250,000 Republican voters here in Broward County? Do not believe the lies of Richard Denapoli. He will show you pictures of him standing next to Donald Trump and other conservatives, but it is just smoke and mirrors to confuse you. If you don’t believe this article ask around within Broward County Republicans whom have been fighting the good fight for the last 10 years and they will tell you that Richard Denapoli is a Republican in name only (RINO) as per his actions.
