Sometimes KARMA strikes fast, and furiously: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis saw the 2005 blackface photos of Secretary of State MIKE ERTEL, portrying a Hurricane Katrina victim. ERTEL resigned within hours on Thursday, January 24, 2019 (today). MIKE ERTEL was cruelly unfair in mocking Hurricane Katrina victims in blackface -- photos located by Gannett's Tallahassee Democrat. MIKE ERTEL was cruelly unfair to our 2008 Democratic Congressional nominee, Faye Armitage, on her ballot petitions. (I blogged about ERTEL last month.)
