Broward LCR Florida Learns of Scott Herman's Switching Political Hats
The Board of Directors of the Broward Log Cabin Club of Florida officially learned on Tuesday afternoon that on Monday, December 17th, Scott Herman, who became a club member last year, had switched his political affiliation.
Steve Rothaus of the Miami Herald contacted Andy of LCR Broward on Tuesday asking him of his opinion since he was Herman’s volunteer campaign Treasurer. He responded that “Scott, after his political setback, said he and others are thinking of a party change, but, I was never officially informed that he already had, on Monday, formally moved to do so.”
According to Sandy Steen, the club’s V.P., “ Regarding his being distraught over the alleged lack of physical and financial support offered by Florida's GOP leaders, Scott and his campaign manager, Nick Stone, also had difficulty receiving any backing whatsoever from the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund who apparently kept losing documentation.”
Jack Majeske, LCR Broward’s club President noted, “I didn’t know Herman all that well but since he was relatively new to the community many believed that he should have run for a Wilton Manor’s Commission seat initially before tackling a State House Seat held by a well know minority Candidate.”
While the LCR Broward Board of Directors expressed its disappointment over Herman's philosophical metamorphosis they wished him no ill will but understand that club members will face doctrine challenges in any future campaigns Scott and the DEC deem appropriate for the candidate to tackle.
