HI - Question here

Are we curious at all about this Liberate Florida PAC & it's potential #MedicalMarijuana connections? Because maybe we should be curious about that.
@Jason_Garcia @JeffWeinerOS @LeaLovesUSA ImageImage
Particularly because:

Liberate Florida PAC, run by Andrea Roca signed paperwork on 06/29/2020, and was received on 07/06/2020 & created.

While Liberate Florida, Inc. was effective w/Corp Div on 07/06/2020
and
LiberateGLV, Inc. was set up 06/08/2020
@Jason_Garcia @JeffWeinerOS ImageImageImageImage
Or possibly that #AMMPA, the co. that #JasonPirozzolo started, (when his friends in legis wrote a last min amendment to require an MD so he could start AMMPA) had #liberatewpb #liberatefl at Cannabis Conference in Miami w/#MattGaetz? or #BrianMast & celebrating the legis? ImageImageImageImage

This is a very interesting response.

Asked to elaborate on the Ghost Candidate race.

He repeats nearly every other question back verbatim, except this one. Instead he says "Are you talking about the Brodeur/Sigman race. Right now that's attorney client privilege so I can't".

1/Greenberg's victim atty:
“Dorworth has a history of hiring local provocateur,” referring to blogger #JacobEngels. Email cited an unrelated defamation suit against Engels-which the atty claimed #ChrisDorworth was the financier of the alleged defamation. By @WFTV h/t @RogerWants
2/ #MattGaetz defended Engels, and like a good the Wingman Greenberg was, he amplified his defense.
3/Engels runs a publication called Central Florida Post. He made FB Live posts about Beute days before Greenberg’s arrest. (See ⬇️ for an into to #JacobEngels)

1/ John Morgan
18 JAN 2019
Duh... I don't know why my brain failed to put these together.

During DeSantis’ post-election transition period, Gaetz served as an emissary to Morgan, Florida’s self-described “pot daddy,” keeping him abreast of the governor-elect’s thinking.
2/ Morgan has invested millions in marijuana-related businesses, including banks catering to the industry, licensees & Weedapps, a smart phone dir of cannabis doctors & retailers. also raising $200mil for a hedge fund concentrating on the industry. tampabay.com/florida-politi…
3/Less than 24hrs before the FL Legislature passed the state’s first medical marijuana law in May 2014, #MattGaetz & other members of the state House rewrote the bill to limit who would be able to get in on the ground floor of what has since become a billion-dollar business.
