DuhSantis Priorities

Amid “pandemic playground” ridicule in the national media, Gov. Rick DuhSantis has shown that his misguided, politically-motivated priorities are hardly limited to Florida’s chaotic, counterproductive reopenings. No, DuhSantis has been leading the state’s efforts in urging the U.S. Supreme Court to side with Florida efforts to reject Amendment Four that restores the voting rights of former felons. SCOTUS decided not to weigh in–and let stand for now the 11th Circuit appeals court’s decision to keep hundreds of thousands of poor ex-felons from voting.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor, in her dissent, underscored the bottom line. “The Court’s inaction continues a trend of condoning disfranchisement,” said Sotomayor. BTW, there are an estimated 774,000 disenfranchised former felons in Florida. DuhSantis knows that—as does Trump.
