Six months after a record-breaking 11.1 million Floridians voted in well-run, widely praised election, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation Thursday that will make it harder for some people to vote in future elections.
He touted the law as a fraud-fighting measure — even though neither he nor other supporters came up with any examples of fraud from recent Florida elections that needed any remedies.
DeSantis signed the measure into law at political rally in West Palm Beach, arranged so he could take the action during the Fox News Channel morning show “Fox & Friends.” Hundreds of DeSantis supporters attended the event. Florida news reporters and photographers were excluded.
It was all for an audience of one, an oddly orange-tufted troll pacing about Merde-a-Lardo. We know this because only Fox News was invited, and it was signed in time during Petunia & Pals when they know that Lord Damp Nut would be watching while having boxes and boxes of Frosted Sugar Bombs (with extra sugar) and a Diet Coke.
It is a well-known fact that Floriduh is the land of the newly-wed-and-nearly-dead, and I would venture that Republican registration in that state trends towards the elderly, who will love to have to leave their gated communities to try to find a place to vote, you know, amongst the great unwashed. Also/Too: Floriduh has enjoyed 20 years (or so) of voting-by-mail. Imagine their surprise when the ballots don’t magically appear.
So next election when we see parades of golf carts escaping The
Shady Rest , er, Villages, venturing out into the wild, it might not necessarily mean Grampa has gone sundowners.
