Seems like maybe its time to address Florida's Consul to Belarus, Mikhail Morgulis, who served on the advisory board to Keith Ingersoll's blockchain company, Organic Fresh Coin - that was allegedly "backed by the country of Belarus". ImageImage
Morgulis, who signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with Belarus regarding blockchain in March 2018 alongside Katerina Foronda who looks to have come through the Russian Orthodox Church's attempt to infiltrate conservative politics.
Speaking of churches and politics, maybe it would interest you to know that trump's "spiritual advisor" Paula White is Keith Ingersoll's aunt?

Florida’s Elections Are Being Rigged
by @Matt_Fleming321

All of this is happening as trump’s supporters continue to claim Dems are cheating. Demands for audits in FL led DeSantis to propose legis to create a new “elections crimes” state gov agency.
thespacecoastrocket.com/floridas-elect… Image
Ten years ago, FL’s #redistricting efforts were led by the FL Senate’s then-President & current Brevard County lobbyist, Mike Haridopolis. The maps drawn in 2011, and signed by Gov. Rick Scott led to Republican control of nearly two thirds of the State Legis. Image
Despite Reps only getting apprx half the votes in close statewide elections.

Voters sued in 2012 & courts ruled the state’s districts had to be redrawn. Mike Haridopolis’ lobbying business partner, Steve Crisafulli, then Speaker in 2015 refused to redraw the districts. Image
