Broward County’s watchdog released a report last week saying Beverly Perkins’ successful 2020 re-election campaign for Pompano Beach City Commission committed a third-degree felony and first-degree misdemeanors involving thousands, including an $800 “swearing-in celebration” at a Pompano Beach restaurant.
The Office of the Inspector General is referring the case to the Broward County State Attorney and the Florida Division of Elections for further action.
The OIG found 22 post-election expenditures totaling $7,381.92 that weren’t for the election nor legally allowed disbursements of surplus campaign funds. Perkins’ lawyer Larry Allen said that Perkins did not benefit personally, calling them “bookkeeping errors.”
