Palm Bay City Counselor Brian Jacob Anderson / Seat 3

THE BIG QUESTION IS HOW $ 5,050.00 WAS CONTRIBUTED TO BRIAN ANDERSON’S CAMPAIGN FOR CITY COUNSEL IN ITS FINAL MONTH?  WHO CONTRIBUTED IT?  WHERE DID IT COME FROM?

Thomas Grume, of Palm Pay, FL has filed complaint against City Counselor Brian Anderson for violating FL State Statues 106.075 and 839.13.

Under Statute 106.075, “A person who is elected to office must report all loans, exceeding $ 500 in value, made to him or her and used for campaign purposes and made in the 12 months preceding his or her election to office, or to the filing officer.  The report must be made, in the manner prescribed by the Department of State, within 10 days after being elected to office.”

Under Statute 106.075, “if any…public officer…shall fraudulently…falsify…any proceedings whatever of or belonging to any public office within the state; or if any person shall cause or procure any of the aforesaid to be committed, or be in anywise concerned therein, the person so offending shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree…”

On an official campaign finance report DS DW13 Brian Jacob Anderson reported that he had loaned his campaign $ 900.00 on the 28th day of September, 2016.  There is no record indicating that Mr. Anderson reported this loan with the filing officer within 10 days of being elected in accordance with Florida State Statute 106.075 sub paragraph 1.  This is a first degree misdemeanor under Florida Statute 106.19 subsection 1.

On a subsequent official campaign finance report DS DW13, Brian Jacob Anderson reported that he had loaned his campaign $ 1,000.00 on the 1st day of October, 2016.  There is no record indicating that Mr. Anderson reported this loan with the filing officer within 10 days of being elected in accordance with Florida State Statute 106.075 sub paragraph 1.  This is a first degree misdemeanor under Florida Statute 106.19 subsection 1.

On another subsequent official campaign finance report DS DW13, Brian Jacob Anderson reported that he had loaned his campaign $ 5,050.00 on the 23rd day of October, 2016.  There is no record indicating that Mr. Anderson reported this loan with the filing officer within 10 days of being elected in accordance with Florida State Statute 106.075 sub paragraph 1.  This is a first degree misdemeanor under Florida Statute 106.19 subsection 1.

Mr. Anderson’s Campaign finance reports show several different variations that are claimed to be his signature that even an untrained eye appear to be signed by no less than four different hands signing the candidates name.  These variations appear to be a violation of Florida Statute 839.13 subsection one.  Each instance of these violations is a first degree misdemeanor.

See for your self if these signatures are variations.

Mr. Grume is asking for an investigation to be commissioned to verify if Commissioner Anderson loaned his campaign $ 7,340.00, and that it is consistent with his personal financial records. And to verify that he had the financial means to make such a loan on his behalf, or if the $ 5,050.00 came from a third party and was falsely reported on form DE DE13.

Mr. Anderson ran several campaigns in the past where he was not elected.  2007 records show he donated a total of $ 345.94 to his campaign.  In 2008 Mr. Anderson donated a total of $ 90.00.  In 2012 he donated $ 220.00.

That there was a sudden influx of $ 7,340.00 to Mr. Anderson’s campaign in the final months is highly suspect and worthy of investigation.

Where did the $ 5,050.00 come from?
