  1. I hope a pro-life Republican runs against Corey Simon in the primary. Otherwise, I won’t be voting for anybody for State Senate.

  2. If I remember correctly, the City let them go in there under a Temporary Emergency Order because of a major Winter Cold Front to Hit Tallahassee a couple Years ago and they were supposed to leave afterwards but refused. This has been a huge Boonedoggle from Day One.

  3. TPD and their PBA union are out of control with their shady taxpayer raises, now trampling on 1st amendment. Regardless of views on abortion, Reese Goad is not up to the task of maintaining stability

  4. There are about 22 circumstances in which people’s information is kept out of public record in Florida. Seems like any publicity is good publicity for their campaigns

  5. Reference: “Two Florida Democratic leaders were arrested Monday with” That would be Nikki Fried and Sen. Lauren Book. Their commitment to the protesters was so shallow that neither Fried or Book have their mug shot published in today’s Leon Co. Sheriff Booking Report.
