The people who received the cash in $50, $20 and $5 bills weren't listed when the party filed a report last week on its activities for November and December. Florida law requires a party or candidate to list the full name and address of each person to whom a campaign expenditure is made.
County Democratic Chairman Wahid Mahmood [yes, he's a muslim] said he didn't know about the cash payments [yea right] until the Politics column started asking questions last week. Mahmood said the party would get the names of the cash recipients and file an amended report detailing who was paid[...]
[...]The $4,900 check from the party, Enright said, was given to her with Mahmood's blessing for the specific purpose of getting cash to pay Election Day workers. Enright said the typical worker got $75 in an envelope that contained a $50 bill, a $20 bill and a $5 bill. When the $4,900 turned out to be not quite enough, Enright said, Mahmood approved the $225 check three days later so she could pay additional workers.
