Florida Legislature Reportedly Drafts Bill to Allow DeSantis Presidential Run “Minutes After” Trump Indictment


3,775 views

Florida lawmakers reportedly filed legislation Thursday that would repeal the state’s “Resign to Run” law.

Repealing the law would pave the way for Gov. Ron DeSantis to run for president without having to resign from his current position.

The bill draft was filed “minutes after the announcement that President Donald Trump has been indicted by a Manhattan Grand Jury on 30 counts related to alleged business fraud,” The Floridian reports.

From The Floridian:

The bill, “SPB 7050: Elections” could change Florida’s “Resign to Run” law which, as currently written, would require Governor Ron DeSantis to resign as Governor at least ten days before qualifying to run for President, if he decides to run. His resignation would not go into effect until assuming a new office.

The bill which was filed tonight at 6:08pm on the Florida Senate Bill Registry, states:

“A bill to be entitled

(PRELIMINARY DRAFT) An act relating to elections; providing legislative intent; providing an effective date.

Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:

Section 1. The Legislature intends to revise laws relating to elections.

Section 2. This act shall take effect July 1, 2023.”

Along with refusing to say President Trump’s name in his statement today, @GovRonDeSantis and his goons chose TODAY, the day President Trump got indicted, as the day to introduce the draft of the bill to change Florida’s Resign to Run law. They did this today, hoping nobody would notice,” investigative journalist and former Florida congressional candidate Laura Loomer wrote.

Today as it was announced that President Trump was indicted by a Soros District attorney, Desantis’s henchmen in the FL legislature chose TODAY as the day to file the bill to amend the Florida Resign to Run law so that @GovRonDeSantis won’t have to resign as Governor to run for president,” Loomer added.

“DeSantis waited for Trump’s indictment to do this, just like I said he would. Florida taxpayers will be paying DeSantis’s salary for the next year so he can campaign on taxpayer dime. Imagine how evil you have to be to do this today of all days. What a snake!”

“The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head. It is un-American,” DeSantis wrote after the announcement of Trump’s indictment.

“The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent. Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda,” he added.
