Another One Bites The Dust
Now try getting out of the tree.
This is so dumb, Florida-level dumb, it had to be from Republicans:
Just a day after testing positive for COVID-19, a Florida Republican official who battled against mask mandates, attacked the vaccine, and railed at CDC officials has died in Tampa.
Gregg Prentice, who was 61, led the Hillsborough County Election Integrity Committee—and his sudden death has sent the local GOP scrambling as it no longer has access to essential campaign-finance software without his help.
In a Sept. 14 letter to the Federal Election Commission, the Hillsborough County Republican Executive Committee reported it might not be able to file its monthly financial reports as required—because only Prentice knew how to do it.
That essentially what happens when you design a Dead Man’s Switch and then, well, you have a dead man: whatever he was guarding is gone forever.
