1/🧵 Tina Descovich is the ringleader of the "#MomsForLiberty" circus. She is a former school board member in #Brevard, and she was defeated by #JenniferJenkins for her seat in 2020. The same Jennifer Jenkins who State Rep Randy Fine is being investigated for threatening.
2/ The "small office" she claims to work out of is also home to many other interesting things, including an org she had with the other founding "mom", Bridget Ziegler, over 2 years ago.
3/ Before she was a school board member, her website says she was a marketing/PR/HR professional who has close ties to the defense industry. With Randy Fine, we can add casinos to that list.

Playing russian roulette with kids' lives during #Covid makes a little more sense now.

Data Targeting refers to the Florida Republicans who benefited from shill candidates as “Seal Team Six.” Documents suggest that the president of the Florida senate, Republican @WiltonSimpson, may have been involved in the scheme. 😳 #FlaPol #ShillCandidates
.@WiltonSimpson is an apparent fan of the ban on mask mandates in public schools. As I’ve shown, Republicans don’t actually want to help public schools. Their goal is to take them over so they can eliminate them. 2/

1. Floridians for Equality & Justice
Chairman, Treasurer & Reg Agent: Stephen Jones

@Annette_Taddeo Mr. Jones does exist. He just doesn't go by Stephen, that's his son's name.

Looks to me like its Stafford Jones, & he works w/#DataTargetingInc.

@LeaLovesUSA & I can explain.
2. Mr Stafford Jones has many aliases he uses to operate in the shadows of Florida politics.
C Jones, William S Jones, Stafford Jones

For Floridians for Equality and Justice, along with others.

One thing these Jones have in common; a wife. Christie Jones.
3. Christie Jones & Stafford Jones, a married couple most certainly would own property together. So @LeaLovesUSA pulled signatures from a property to compare, confirming that William Jones is Stafford Jones.
Additionally, Stephen Jones' signature displays a resemblance (nes & J).

1. There's more than just three #ShillCandidates from the 2020 Election for Florida House seats.

Follow along.

I'm not seeing any discussions about District 42 and that's a big problem.
2.Parties sometimes recruit people to file w/o affiliation in tight local & state-level races where many voters know little about candidates. Some voters do little research before they go to the polls & may be persuaded to cast votes for people whose names sound like theirs.
3.Groups looking to siphon votes away look for people who represent a strategic demographic, such as a woman or someone w/a Hispanic-sounding name. In a tight race determined by just a few hundred or thousand votes, that tactic can be successful and inexpensive.

Alvarado really shouldn't act so confident... but the #darkmoney in Florida game has played fine a long time.

Here's the problem now; #JoelGreenberg knows & no one is #manafort enough to protect each other. H/t @LeaLovesUSA

Incredible reporting out of @orlandosentinel, again!

THIS story is IMPORTANT!
By @Jason_Garcia & Annie Martin

Behind the scenes, #JoelGreenberg told others in local politics he was orchestrating Sheppard’s campaign. He claimed to be using Sheppard to gain “control” OCSO. /1 Image
“I do happen to have the only democrat on the ballot for the Orange County sheriff office race [sic],” Greenberg wrote to another Seminole (R), who provided a copy of the message. Greenberg sent the message about 48 hours before Sheppard finally paid his qualifying fee. /2 ImageImage
