Remember when there were honest Republican elected officials?
Remember when U.S. Rep. H.R. Gross (R-Iowa) and Senator William Proxmire (D-Wisc.) made bicameral, bipartisan concerns known about ending waste, fraud and abuse?
Remember when Republicans were fiscal conservatives?
Now, are our Republican elected officials, the pouty preening poltrooish party afraid of Herr TRUMP and goofy Governor DeSANTIS, mostly corrupt to the core?
Now Republican elected officials everywhere fetishize secrecy and corruption. They're servile its and rebarbative reprobate robots for America's corporate crime wave. The recent no-bid MOTOROLA contract in St. Johns County typifies the genre.
In the Florida State House of Representatives Speaker of the House Paul Renner is abolishing the need for appropriations bills.
Jesus wept. That is so obvious, you know they're sneaky.
Purportedly representing parts of St. Johns County, and adjoining Flagler County, Florida Speaker of the House PAUL RENNER, a NELSON MULLINS corporate law firm partner, held fundraisers in Rhode Island, Wisconsin and elsewhere. Corporate-directed Dull Republican elected officials will go anywhere that corporate oligarchs may wish to gather, preferably involving golf. They are like pigs searching for truffles snuffling out anyone who wishes to fund foul, fetid, feculent, filthy one-party corporate oligarch rule in Florida.
As the late U.S. Rep. John Dingell (D-Michigan) said, "If I write the procedural rules and you write the substantive law, I will win every time."
Knowing where the levers of power are, Speaker of the House PAUL RENNER, has reportedly modified the Corroran-era reform rules of the Florida State House of Representatives.
Tell your constituents, Mr. Speaker, rather than just the corpulent creepy corporate crowd at ALEC or Heritage Foundation meetings.
