T-U: Duval Judge Leading Vote Counting Board Donated To Trump 12 Times, Despite Rules
A local judge and head of Duval County’s vote-counting board has donated repeatedly to President Trump’s re-election campaign and other Republican efforts, according to WJCT News partner The Florida Times-Union.
His home is covered in signs supporting Trump, despite rules requiring judges like him refrain from donations or public support, the Times-Union reported.
Duval County senior Judge Brent Shore has served as chairman of the canvassing board because of his role as a county judge.
And canvassing board rules bar members from "displaying a candidate's campaign signs," according to reporting by the Times-Union.
Senior county Judge Brent Shore, who the Times-Union reported has refused to change rules barring the public from photographing or videotaping vote-counting meetings, first donated $20 in 2016 to Donald Trump’s initial campaign for president.
He has donated 11 more times since then to Trump for a total of $170, as well as donating $178 in the last two years to the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Congressional Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
