One of the undercover FBI agents was the first witness to take the stand in the trial of Sharon Lettman-Hicks and former Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. Mike Miller, the formerly undercover agent, testified that he paid for a one night hotel stay for Gillum, including the infamous tickets to the Broadway show “Hamilton.” Miller said three other undercover FBI agents were present. Federal prosecutors have stated that Gillum lied to FBI agents about who paid for that New York trip.

Florida’s congressional officials continue to show split allegiances as Florida Congressman Brian Mast and John Rutherford have endorsed Donald Trump for president and former Florida Secretary of State and current Congresswoman, Laurel Lee, endorsed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president. Mast and DeSantis worked closely together when they served in Congress at the same time, however Mast has also been at numerous events with Donald Trump Jr. Lee cited her time in DeSantis’ administration as one of the chief factors in making this decision as she had “the honor of witnessing firsthand his unparalleled leadership under pressure, his character and his commitment to core conservative principles.”
Florida lawmakers are also making steps to secure $100 million each year to the Land Acquisition Trust Fund, more commonly known as Florida Forever. The Florida Wildlife Corridor and other lands at risk of being developed will be noted as high priority projects.
No. 5 Florida State softball defeated the Stetson Hatters 7-2 yesterday. Eight different Noles tallied hits, notably when Michaela Edenfield hit a two-run home run in the top of the first inning, and the Noles never looked back. FSU has won 15 out of their last 17 games.
If TFG becomes once more the elected Grifter in Chief, or if your Gov becomes the Chief in High Heels, either way the U.S. will be swirling even further down the toilet. SMH
Laurel Lee is an empty vessel, if she hadn’t quit to run for congress she was gonna be canned for her monumental mismanagement at DOS. Trump is slaughtering Ron. There is no division as much as people are being exposed.
Also it’s not very split… 8-1 Trump for major endorsements. DeSantis is not just losing to Trump, he’s losing to Trump in Florida! Ron has a very narrow path to GOP nomination
I will bet that the Parents that are angry about those Books being removed from our Schools would be the same Parents that would be angry if the Schools allowed Penthouse Magazine to be in our Schools.
@ NE NotSoModerate… look up the definition of censor(ship).
@ DeepStatePropagandist… Try to look and think deeper into the objections folks might have over AB endorsing, normalizing, and supporting a mental disorder known as Gender Dysphoria/Dystopia. Conservatives do not generally endorse the concept of boycotts. On the other hand, Marxicrats love the concept of fiscal extortion.
And yes; DeSantis will win the General against the Treasonous Dementia Patient in Chief… or Knee Pads Harris if Pedo Joe ducks out. This is why you spend so much of your time fixated on him and blathering hatred toward him… because you know it to be true. Fear sucks doesn’t it. BTW, he didn’t ban books, Saul… he protected our children from perverted and pornographic Marxicrat Grooming material.
@NE Moderate –
A comment got stripped off of *this page*, presumably because the staff doesn’t want to be highlighting the fact that their predominant user base is so wildly transphobic that they can’t write three sentences without putting it front and center.
What a time to be alive.
It is dis-orienting to know when comments are on or off? Jay Revell’s soft focus piece did not allow for comments I thought TR did not do that like the Democrat censors?
Hey did everyone see the news about how Fox news agreed to pay Dominion 750 million dollars for going out an lying to everyone about the 2020 election? Like lying, again and again, when they knew all of the stuff they were spouting was total nonsense. Pretty sure this is just a 4D chess move by them because my QAnon sources tell me Trump is going to be re-instated as President on Christmas day this year.
“The latest insult being Don Jr.’s statements regarding Budweiser.”
LOL, Budweiser’s parent company, Anheuser Busch, is a large GOP contributor, so naturally, Fox and Trump came to their defense after they, like, made a beer can with a weird person on it and everything. The fact that conservative snowflakes got so flustered by someone being on a can of beer is so hilarious and sad.
@Pat A –
“Desantis can win the General.”
No way DeSantis wins the general because his baggage as a book banning, big government moralizer, abortion rights arsonist is SuperFund toxic to independents. That being said, I do hope he wins the primary and Trump takes his 20% QAnon base and forms a third party. That is the best case scenario.
Barb, Trump isn’t my choice in the Primary because I doubt he can win the General. Desantis can win the General.
The 2024 primary is a long way off, but I haven’t been happy with Trump since the weekend before the 2022 midterms. The latest insult being Don Jr.’s statements regarding Budweiser.
