Interesting, indeed, since Charles F. McGonigal was directly under DAG Rod Rosenstein, who has previously represented HalkBank.

Ballard Partners were lobbyists for Turkiye Halk Bankasi Anonim Sirketi (Halkbank, Inc.).

Geoffrey Berman got too close to #Sayfie so Barr nixed him.

Yesterday I released my Florida State Senate ratings. You can read all details!…

Today, let me offer a THREAD on SD3, where Incumbent Loranne Ausley (D) is at risk of losing in her Biden +3 district; which covers the Tallahassee region #flapol #sayfie
This district is heavily dominated by Leon County, which holds Tallahassee. In a modern context, Leon and maj-black Gadsden County dominate the vote total. However, the outside rural counties are deep red, with most blue pockets being maj-black precincts #flapol
Gadsden and the North Florida African-American community are a critical voting block for Democrats in the area. I covered a recent DeSantis-inspired scandal in the county here #flapol

Several months ago, Ron DeSantis appointed a white Republican to the majority-black Gadsden County’s commission. That appointee has now resigned after a KKK costume photo emerged.

I delve into Gadsden politics and Ron’s horrible pick…

#flapol #sayfie Image
While I’ll give Ron the benefit of the doubt that the photo, which is old, was not likely known, it still was insulting for him to appoint a white Republican to Florida’s lone majority black commission - especially in replacing a black democrat #flapol.
Gadsden has a long and nasty political history - subject to Jim Crow suppression. In the 1950s, only a few black voters were registered. It took federal laws to finally see a massive shift in voter registration. See the rapid rise in the late 1960s #flapol. Image

Meghan, I love you and Ben. But this is wrong-a-mundo. Let me explain. #sayfie (1)
DeSantis probably knows the Trump base better than most. And they will resent a candidate who competes with Trump in 2024 -- even in a congenial manner. So I am betting unless Trump drops out, DeSantis will not run in 2024. (2)
By 2028, DeSantis will have a large profile and more experience. He will also likely have a huge war chest and a large number of chits across the nation. The shiny penny you mention is on the scene now. And none of them look like they will be shinier in 2028. (3)

In many campaigns, sometimes there is an endorsement that serves as a finishing move. Today, the former mayor of Palm Beach County (!), a Democrat, endorsed #FLGov Ron DeSantis. #flsen #sayfie
It's hard to believe a South Florida Democrat who once served the tony liberal communities of Palm Beach et al. would endorse Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis. Palm Beach Co. is one of the three big South Florida Democratic counties. (2)
To be fair, Palm Beach is probably the least Democratic county of South Florida. It has a lot of Republicans, as does Miami-Dade. Joe Biden beat Trump by less than 100K in Palm Beach in 2020. (3)

Conservative Media Cheering DeSantis Crackdown on Disney Are Ignoring What a Catastrophe It Would Be for Florida via @mediaite #sayfie #ReedyCreek #flapol
Let's dig into this. One of the main points = Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID) is SUPER complicated & has been around for over 50 years. It's a >$100 million annual operating budget to provide services over a 25K+ parcel that stretches across 2 counties. /2
Orange County includes Orlando and several other well-developed suburbs and cities. Osceola remains far more rural outside of the tourist corridor. Both counties are currently facing significant challenges related to skyrocketing housing prices, transportation needs, etc. /3

FL’s Constitution orders the Gov to submit his budget recommendation at least 30 days before session. Since legislators will return to Tally on Jan 11, today the Gov released his rec. for FY 2022-2023. See it here:…. & read this thread for quick details 1/
The Gov’s rec. is not the official budget, it is what the Gov would like legislators to include in their budget. During 2022 session, each Chamber drafts their version of the budget, negotiate, & pass the final “General Appropriations Act”(GAA) for the Gov to sign &/or veto. 2/
The GAA is always divided into 7 main sections: 1-2. edu, 3. human services, 4. criminal justice & corrections, 5. natural resources, environment, growth mgmt, & transport., 6. general gov, & 7. the judicial branch. Anything after these main sections =“back of the bill.” 3/

I’ve read the @bsfarrington article that had DeSantis’ spox @ChristinaPushaw tweeting late through the night. Here’s the actual link, so you can read it for yourself too, then go read her tweets, & decide for yourself. #flapol #sayfie /1…
Pushaw accuses Farrington of spreading “BlueAnon” “conspiracy theories.” But the article doesn’t actually quote or reference any of the many, many Democrats we all know would be perfectly happy to slam DeSantis. He also didn’t discourage Regeneron use. /2
Pushaw repeatedly called Farrington a “liar” & said his article contained “lies.” Where are the lies, @ChristinaPushaw? What EXACTLY is inaccurate in the article? Be specific. Quote what’s wrong. Here’s the link again to help. /3…

BREAKING: Armed men dressed as security guards claiming to be with the Trump campaign showed up today at the downtown St. Pete early voting location today, according to @VotePinellas Supervisor of Elections Julie Marcus.

@WFLA #BattlegroundFlorida…
"The sheriff told me the persons who were dressed in these security uniforms had indicated to sheriff's deputies that they belonged to a licensed security company and they indicated, and this has not been confirmed yet, that they were hired by the Trump campaign," Marcus said.
Marcus, a Republican, is running to keep her seat after being appointed by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis in May when longtime supervisor Deborah Clarke retired.

Pinellas Co. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, also a Republican, is running for re-election as well.

excellent coverage as usual from @fineout & @Mdixon55 -- noteworthy that neither Biden nor Sanders really campaigned in FL or spent $ (Bloomberg spent way more) but Biden swept all major D endorsements…

.@AARPFL advocacy staff and volunteer leaders from across the state had the opportunity to share their stories of the high cost of #RxDrugs with @GovRonDeSantis @HHSGov @SecAzar and @HHS_ASH this morning : 1/ #StopRxGreed #FlaPol #Sayfie ImageImage
We applaud Gov. DeSantis, Sec. Azar & the administration in ensuring that states will have the opportunity to import safe, FDA-approved prescription drugs from Canada. We're pleased to see signs that direct savings for consumers could also be coming: 2/
.@AARPFL State Director Jeff Johnson on today's FDA rule news: “This is a big step in the right direction toward lower prescription drug prices in Florida. We’re not there yet, but this will help.” 3/3

Once upon a time, there was a new governor. He appointed co-managing directors of a Tea-Party-sponsored political group @flca4liberty to his education transition team. Appropriate to have multiple voices represented on a committee, yes, but this group wants full control. /1
.@flca4liberty doesn't consult w/ #Florida parents. It decides for us. Its last email blast asks "Is Your School Duping You Into Buying Porn for Your Child?" (@keithflaugh & Pastor Rick, your photo expresses exactly how parents feel when we read a subject heading like this.) /2
The @flca4liberty directors explain why this matters. "... is back in session, & soon the FL Legislature will be back in session, too! So much is at stake...We need to strengthen Florida's statutes to legally protect our children from harmful pornographic materials." Porn? /3

Over the next few days & weeks we will be coordinating with @GovRonDeSantis to secure prompt federal reimbursements to #Florida counties for storm-related costs. But we face some hurdles regarding #HurricaneDorian 1/3 #Sayfie #FlaPol
.@fema “Category B Reimbursement” is for pre-storm “Emergency Protective Measures” but are generally limited to direct federal assistance provided if @FLSERT is unable to meet a counties needs. It does not appear any direct federal assistance will occur with this storm. 2/3
I am concerned (as is Governor)that in future counties may be reluctant to undertake pre-storm protective measures if costs will not be reimbursed. Especially since many of these counties are still waiting for reimbursements from 2016 & 2017 storms.

#BayCounty was hit by a Cat 4 Hurricane just 4 weeks ago,yet managed to count votes & submit timely results.

Yet over 41 hours after polls closed #Broward elections office is still counting votes?

#Broward supervisor:
- says she doesn’t know how many ballots are left to be counted; &
- Isn’t reporting hourly or regularly,but rather releasing thousands of additional votes,often in the overnight hours,that are chipping away at GOP leads


#Broward elections department has a history of violating the law:

A court found they improperly handled votes by mail:…

Court found they destroyed ballots in 2016 in violation of state & federal law:…

It’s official, FL bill HB 631 is now a law and could affect a beach near you even if you don’t live in Florida. Walton County residents were out in droves yesterday (July 1st) to protest this new law, signed by Governor Rick Scott last month.…
This new #Florida law invalidates local municipalities' #customaryuse ordinances and effectively locks the general public out of using the best parts of Florida’s beaches—unless they can afford to rent (or buy) beachfront property. Lawsuits are pending. #standyoursand
🚫HB 631 bans local municipalities from adopting ordinances to regulate public access to Florida’s beaches above the mean water line.

⁉️But first, where’s the mean water line?

💥In short, it's where everyone wants to sit when they're at the beach.…
