1/Gaetz, Moody spread election conspiracy. FDLE spends 706 hrs proving it false
Moody called for investigation saying DeSantis also urged her to after reading a WAPO story that Bloomberg wanted to help former felons get their voting rights back in Florida.
2/On the eve of the uprising, the Rule of Law Defense Fund sent out robocalls urging supporters of Trump to join what was, by this point, an escalating movement to overturn the election by force.
3/As scrutiny of those messages intensified following the insurrection, Moody’s office scrubbed references to the Rule of Law Defense Fund from her online biography. Her website still promoted the board appointment on Friday, according to @TB_Times. By Mon morning, it was gone.
4/Alabama’s attorney general is calling for an investigation into who may have authorized a branch of the Republican Attorneys General Association to promote the pro-Trump rally in Washington, D.C., that preceded a deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Ashley Moody, Republican #darkmoney & the #CapitolInsurrection
The group, Rule of Law Defense Fund, an arm of the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA), whose “mission is electing Republicans to the Office of State AG” across the country.
6/In December, she signed Florida onto RAGA’s unpersuasive amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court supporting President Trump’s failed effort to delay the certification of presidential electors in four key states that Trump lost.
7/RAGA itself continues to list Moody as a director of the fund, noting that “since taking office as AG” in Jan 2019, “General Moody has been recognized as a national leader appointed to the Executive Committee of the Natl Assoc of AG & BOD for the Rule of Law Defense Fund.’’
8/One of the RLDF’s earliest chairmen was Ok AG Scott Pruitt, later Trump’s controversial pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Under Pruitt, the RLDF organized legal challenges to the EPA’s Clean Power Plan.
9/Maplight’s description of RLDF: “The shadowy org at the center of a web of #darkmoney nonprofits that have worked to advance conservative interests & has helped organize state challenges to environmental regulations thatcould hurt polluters financially.” maplight.org/story/conserva…
10/Moody, who is either a current or former director of the fund, isn’t the only key FL (R) to be tied to this month’s political machinations in D.C. State (R) Party boss Joe Gruters, senator from Sarasota who was unanimously re-elected in Orlando recruited right-wing supporters.
11/“If you want to go to DC for the rally for the President on the 6th please reach out to my friend @ Traci Williams as they just opened up a 3rd bus,” Gruters wrote on his Facebook page the evening of Jan. 2, w/a link to Williams’s Instagram post about the trip.
12/Williams was identified last year by the Sarasota Republican Club as the “National Leader of the America First Coalition, with over 1.5 million followers throughout Florida’s 27 Congressional districts.”
13/Gruter’s sidekick, Republican Party of FL Vice Chairman Christian Ziegler, was at the President’s Jan. 6 rally. He told Tampa television station WFLA that day that he didn’t see any violence as he watched from a distance, but saw a large crowd gathered on the Capitol’s steps.
14/“I could tell you there were 100,000s of people, it was overwhelmingly peaceful, they led a march down Constitution Ave from the WH to the Capitol. That was peaceful, then when they got to the Capitol, thats when the issues kind of started,” Ziegler, a Sarasota Commissioner.

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)

Trump Claims Arizona Audit Uncovered Widespread Math

By Andy Borowitz @NewYorker /1
Hinting darkly that “there’s something going on,” Donald J. Trump claimed that the election audit in Arizona had turned up “widespread math.” /2
Explaining how math was used to count votes, Trump said, “If you take one number and add another number to it, you get a totally different number. It’s unfair and, quite frankly, a disgrace.” /3

#AmericaFirstNazis cry "They keep calling us racist".

And then...

Matt Gaetz: you & your friends ARE in fact #WhiteNationalist #WhiteSupremacist wannabe Nazis.
All you're missing is the white hood.
Matt Gaetz retweets #propaganda laced bullshit.

Matt Gaetz is on the Armed Services Committee despite never having served and while being investigated for child sex-trafficking and corruption and election fraud pertaining a shill candidate.
None of those things scream Patriot.
Gaetz, Fucker Carlson and Hannity have done what to sacrifice for Americans? What service do they actually provide to this nation?

I argue NONE. In fact they service a disservice that endangers democracy and all of Americans, even the #WhiteSupremacistExtremists they pander to.
