Recent report that DeSantis steered pension funds to Wall Street money managers who donated to his campaign. If accurate, this is *huge.* Would mean he's ripping off state employees—cops, teachers, etc. Also potentially criminal. More investigation needed.…
A federal anti-corruption rule prohibits donors from receiving pension investments. But "private equity execs have donated millions to political groups supporting DeSantis," while FL transferred > $1 billion of public employees’ retirement money into donor's investment funds.
"It raises the distinct possibility that the decisions that the pension board is making may be serving DeSantis’ political interests and not the pensioners’ interest...
The state’s high-risk, high-fee strategy has resulted in an about $10 billion loss [for 2019-2022]."
“It’s pretty obvious that DeSantis is delivering for the private equity industry, and in exchange they’re providing funding for his campaigns.”
- Eileen Appelbaum, codirector of Center for Economic and Policy Research @ceprdc

Judge Hinkle has set November 29th as the trial date for my 1st Amendment case against Ron DeSantis, with the goal of determining whether the governor violated my free speech rights by suspending me for speaking out in support of abortion rights and transgender Floridians.
We had initially requested an earlier trial date, but the Court’s schedule ensures the governor’s office can respond to Hurricane Ian while also providing enough time to gather necessary documentation for the Court and the public to get to the truth.
My team has identified potential witnesses, including Ron DeSantis himself and members of his inner circle. Decisions on who will be deposed under oath will be made in the coming days.
