Biography: 
Tim Canova is running for Congress as an independent in Florida’s 23rd district against Debbie Wassermann Schultz. He recently won a lawsuit against the Broward County Supervisor of Elections for the illegal destruction of the ballots in his 2016 race for the same seat, after the validity of the results came into question. Canova received his A.B. degree from Franklin and Marshall College in Government and Economics, and his J.D. degree, cum laude, from the Georgetown University Law Center. After the 2008 financial collapse, Canova emerged as a leading critic of the cozy relations between Washington and Wall Street that have corrupted our politics and distorted our economy. In 2011, he was selected by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders to serve on an advisory committee on Federal Reserve reform along with such leading economists as James Galbraith, Robert Reich, Jeffrey Sachs, and Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz. He also took part in the Occupy Wall Street movement in 2011, teaching a workshop on the Federal Reserve at the Occupy Los Angeles encampment. Since 2012, he has been a Professor of Law and Public Finance at Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law in Davie, Florida, where he teaches and writes in the areas of banking and financial services regulation, corporate governance, and international trade and finance. His work has been published under his professional name Timothy A. Canova in dozens of peer-reviewed journals, book chapters, monographs, newspapers, and magazines in the U.S. and overseas.
