"Follow the money." -- Hal Holbrook as FBI Assistant Director Mark Felt, Bob Woodward's confidential news source about Watergate in All the President's Men.
Ask RICHARD CORCORAN, Interim New College President, former Education Commissioner, former Florida Speaker of the House, whose wife, ANNE, is a Charter School CEO, and whose former Education Staff are under investigation for possible bid-rigging.
Slouching toward fascism in Flori-DUH, creepy controversial St. Johns County developer-Senator TRAVIS JAMES HUTSON does it again. This sinister force wants to convert public tax money into a slush fund for Charter Schools. If hindsight is 20/20, we should find it all the more unreasonable that this is happening in 2023.
Circa 2010, my friend, Dr. Sandra Parks, Ed.D. warned that this was rightists' greedy-guys goal. The widow of my mentor, Wm. Stetson Kennedy, KKK-buster, Dr. Parks was right. Any decent Goverrnor would veto this lousy feculent bill, whose only purpose is to fatten government contractors. Wealthy Dull Republicans have no honor and no ethics.
As my mother told me when I was a little boy,"Republicans never steal anything small."
From Florida Politics:
Bill advances to shift charter schools’ building costs to local funding.
