While serial write-in candidate Josue Larose is a political unknown, the Florida Division of Elections says he has generated more paperwork than anyone else.
Larose, 29, of Deerfield Beach is waging a write-in campaign for governor after receiving seven votes in a special election last year for a state Senate seat, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Monday. He has also registered 340 political action committees and 40 political parties, including the American Noble Persons Political Party.
Jennifer Krell Davis, a spokeswoman for the state Division of Elections, said Larose has created more paperwork than any other single individual. He has also more than doubled the number of political parties registered in the state.
"Due to the unusual volume involving Mr. Larose's filings, the division is evaluating the appropriate next steps," Davis said in an e-mail to the newspaper, suggesting officials are contemplating some form of legal action.
Larose refused to comment, telling the Sun-Sentinel he had not granted permission for a story.
