Florida judge resigns from vote-counting board after donations to Trump campaign uncovered

Source: USA Today/AP

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Ė A Florida judge has resigned from Duval Countyís vote-counting board after findings that he donated repeatedly to President Trumpís re-election campaign and other Republican efforts were uncovered.

Duval County senior Judge Brent Shore, whose home displayed several signs supporting Trump, had served as chairman of the canvassing board because of his role as a county judge.

Yet Florida judicial rules bar judges from political donations of any kind.

And canvassing board rules bar members from "displaying a candidate's campaign signs."

3. It's pretty damned sorry that it took revelations in the news before he did the right thing.

If that hadn't have been uncovered he'd have taken his right wing bias into the vote counting.

The front door of Duval County Canvassing Board Chairman Brent Shore's Atlantic Beach home. Shore, a county judge, donated 12 times to Trump, even though he is prohibited from doing so.

A local judge and head of Duval Countyís vote-counting board has donated repeatedly to President Trumpís re-election campaign and other Republican efforts, and his home is covered in signs supporting Trump, despite rules requiring judges like him refrain from donations or public support.

Duval County senior Judge Brent Shore has served as chairman of the canvassing board because of his role as a county judge. ... Yet judicial rules bar judges from political donations of any kind. ... And canvassing board rules bar members from "displaying a candidate's campaign signs."

Senior county Judge Brent Shore, who has refused to change rules barring the public from photographing or videotaping vote-counting meetings, first donated $20 in 2016 to Donald Trumpís 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.
