Phillip J. Brutus (born November 26, 1957 in Port-au-Prince) is a former member of the Florida House of Representatives.

Brutus graduated from Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn, New York. He got his Bachelor's degree at the University of Massachusetts Boston in 1982 and his J.D. degree from Suffolk University Law School in 1985.

Brutus moved to Florida in 1985. Prior to his election to the Florida House, Brutus was a member of the Miami Community Council from the Third District. In 2006, Brutus did not seek reelection.

Brutus has announced he will run for the seat in the United States House of Representatives currently held by Kendrick Meek. This district needs a leader who understands the community’s needs and is able to implement policies that will advance its priorities. As law practitioner for 22 years, Mr. Brutus has represented clients in the community on a range of issues including: immigration, civil rights violation, discrimination, and foreclosure defense.


Between 1999 and 2014, Phillip Brutus's campaign has been fined 18 times by the Florida Election Commission (FEC) for missing required FEC filing deadlines. On January 26, 2016 the FEC found Phillip J. Brutus in violation of the Code Of Ethics "by failing to properly disclose his net worth, liabilities, and two real properties." On May 14, 2016 Florida Governor Rick Scott filed an executive order to publicly censor, reprimand and fine Brutus for these violations.
