Florida's Constitution and ethics law prohibit dual office-holding. It's a simple concept.
Locally, one of our City Commissioners was illegally serving as a member of the Cultural Resources Review Board, after the scope of its duties changed, to where it was more regulatory than before. Apprised of the issue, she resigned, with alacrity. If Florida Boy Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS had as much character as St. Augustine Commissioner (now our Mayor) Nancy Sikes Kline, the Governor would never have created the conflict in the first case by appointing the Ethics Commission Chair to a sinfully overpaid sinecure ($400,000) as Administrator of the newfangled "Central Florida Tourism Oversight Board, successor to the former Woody Creek Improvement District,.
Bottom line: cutthroat Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS is unethical, has no moral compass, and is "surrounded by mediocrities," as my mother would say. A Harvard Law graduate, DeSANTIS is a stench in the nostrils of our Nation. It's time for him to go.
"The Establishment here "would say and do anything," in the immortal words of my late friend and mentor, J.D. Pleasant, the journalist-videographer.
What do y'all reckon?
Kudos to Florida Bulldog, which broke the story, which was in plain sight for months!
