Speaking of Sarasota
I forgot about our likely theocratic spy #MikhailMorgulis, the Consul to Belarus for Florida & New York.
You know, the guy who offered dirt on @HillaryClinton to Roger Stone with Sergei Millian & rallied Russian voters in Florida in 2016... Sara-f_cking-sota
Remember, #KeithIngersoll started a Blockchain company with Morgulis while simultaneously being paid by Joel Greenberg from the Seminole County Tax Collector's Office.

🧵Democrat Janelle Perez quits US House race to run for FL Senate
In Aug (D) Perez announced run against (R) Maria Elvira Salazar. NOW she has abandoned that bid instead running for Senate, currently held by shill candidate beneficiary Ileana Garcia. archive.is/W1I9b
#IleanaGarcia, District 37, won by 34 votes after Frank Artiles paid an IND candidate to run, siphoning votes from the democrat.
Here's what is weird, Perez has never run for office before. She's also a former Republican & continues to financially support GOP candidates.
Perez donated $2k to Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's 2016 campaign, & $1k in 2017 to Daniel Perez, who is a close family friend.
Senate Dem Leader Lauren Book endorsed Perez.
Janelle Perez is the co-owner of her family's Medicare managed-care company.

Loomer vs Webster: The fringe fight Florida Republicans have been courting @Scott_Maxwell
Loomer, self-described “proud Islamophobe” — 28-y.o whos spread conspiracy theories about mass shootings, arrested multiple times & loves to claim she’s the “most banned” on the internet./1 Image
She’s also a role model for Florida Republicans. Hillsborough County’s R-Party invited Greene to headline its big annual fundraiser just a few weeks ago.

Florida Reps are increasingly wallowing in the fringe-o-sphere — even helping elevate Loomer’s profile./2 Image
Last year, Joe Gruters — the chairman of Rep Party — invited Loomer to serve as the posterchild for why he thought FL needed social media laws. Loomer, who said Muslims are “savages f***ing things up for everyone”. Gruters wanted to amplify her voice./3 Image

Conspiracy theorists keep popping up in Sarasota County by @HeraldTribune

A game of conspiracy theorist whack-a-mole in Sarasota County. Bop one over the head with the rubber hammer of reality and another pops up, crazier than the last. /1
Maria Zack is the latest. She's convinced foreign powers used a military satellite in Italy to change votes. Zack formed a Super PAC in 2016. Now says Trump showed her in person at Mar-a-lago "evidence". Of course like most Nations in Action listed at a PO Box at a UPS store./2
The filing for Nations in Action with the state of Florida in September 2020 contains another curious revelation. It lists a man named Hans von Spakovsky as an officer, his address also listed as the P.O. Box on Clark Road./3

Someone get me in touch with Mr. Hinkle here. 😘

#DataTargetInc
Okay. Let's begin.
Jeff Hinkle, who ran unsuccessfully in 2020 to replace outgoing Mel Ponder as the state rep for Okaloosa County's House District 4, has filed a lawsuit alleging "digital defamation" committed against him during election's (R) primary.
nwfdailynews.com/story/news/loc…
Primarily, the suit seeks to have material Hinkle finds most offensive removed from various media where it still appears.

Case filings reveal Hinkle's ongoing effort to serve the so-called Defendant John Doe 1 w/notice of the legal action went to Gulf Coast Conservatives Fund.

1-Seems like Florida Dems, law enforcement & FBI are asleep at the wheel.

Theres at least 4 illegitimately elected officials who should have resigned but play dumb. Just like RPOF Chair & (R) leadership.

Oh well I guess...

❗Sen Dem leader stripped of committee chair❗
2-Wilton Simpson on Thurs removed Sen Dem Lauren Book from chair role, a change that comes <2 weeks before start of committee hearings.

Memo circulated, Simpson said #ileanaGarcia, R-Miami, would replace Book as chair of Committee on Children, Families & Elder Affairs
3- Garcia's win is the product of election fraud & Democrats are allowing Republicans to flaunt their blatant lawlessness & disrespect to the people of Florida.

Pathetic! Weak! Useless! All of you. Good luck FL... what a joke.
