Records show a Palm Beach County museum got $10 million in taxpayer money after a key leader met personally with Ron DeSantis and gave the governor $10,000.
So, back in 2022 ---- $1.68 billion in contracts! Corporate greed and political corruption. I'm shocked.
Boosting DeSantis’s campaign are contributions from 18 companies — including construction, consulting, and utility firms — that received a total of more than $1.68 billion in contracts from state agencies during his time in office. A handful of these firms were relatively dormant for political contributions in other cycles; three have not given to statewide Republican candidates since 2002.
How much are we spending on the new Desantis Army? I read $100 million complete with planes boats and other immigrant rounding up equipment. Do the voters of Florida know whats going on and realize that if Republicans are continually elected there will be no stop to the grift? Vote Blue and Change it around.
Jason, I've been wondering this: Gaetz becomes Governor, Ron runs a good primary race, BUT, leaves things bitter enough with the Trump base that 2028 is unlikely. Where does Ron go? He has made himself the vertical head of the most powerful machine since Huey Long and Boss Tweed, or Mayor Daley - but where does he go next? He seemingly has peaked before 50, odd for a pol
I am so _ucking disgusted by this "pay for play" in Florida. The corruption, cronyism and sheer grift is astounding. Until naive Florida voters wake up, this will go on. It's bad enough he wants to divert crucial, understaffed FHP to the border to do "God knows what", the money will be wasted. New York is not even this bad. This is far worse.
Pay to play—isn’t that a tad illegal?! Hello FDOJ!!
This facility is a major WPB attraction for children of all ages and backgrounds. It offers among other things a wide range of STEM courses. Each spring it has “a build it and break it” contest for students projects. With the influx of new residents ( and the engorgement of real estate tax receipts accompanying them) I think the state can afford it. Nothing like it nearby. I volunteered there for a decade and saw its positive impact on kids. The Gov is frequently specifically generous: ask Hanley (addiction) and CHS (child services).
