A Correction

In yesterday's post lambasting the Presidential Campaign announcement by Desantis made in a meeting with the Apartheid Era Emerald Heir Pedo Guy™, I said that the Florida, "Resign to Run," bill would require him to leave office.

I was wrong.

First, it's not clear about the applicability of the law, and second, just hours before his disastrous campaign rollout, DeSantis signed s bill exempting Presidential and VP candidates from the bill:

In another incremental step in his bid for the White House, Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday signed a bill clarifying that Florida elected officials can remain in office while running for president.

He did so just hours after officially filing paperwork to join the 2024 presidential race, and about two hours ahead of an expected announcement of his presidential run on Twitter with Elon Musk.

The bill, SB 7050, makes a number of sweeping election changes. One clause is the much-watched exemption to the state’s resign-to-run law for presidential and vice presidential candidates, which lawmakers had hinted at last year with DeSantis’ political ambitions in mind.

 Also included in the bill were more voter suppression measures.

That is all.
