Is Ron DeSantis Getting Ready to Pull a Jeb Bush?
Will Ron DeSantis succumb to the same temptation to rig the election for himself, like Jeb Bush did for his brother George? As Michael Keaton once said in a movie, "Is a frog's ass watertight?"
It appears that Ron DeSantis is getting ready to pull a Jeb Bush: Floridians should get ready.
Jeb, then governor of Florida, famously threw the 2000 election in Florida — with a little help from 5 Republicans on the Supreme Court — to his brother, Texas Governor George W. Bush, who won the election by a mere 537 votes.
Jeb did this through his Secretary of State, Katherine Harris, using voter purges and "spoilage" of Black people's ballots.For the voter purge, Harris acquired from George W. Bush's Texas a list of all of that state's convicted felons. Like most former slave states, the largest cohort of Texas' citizens are white but the majority of their prisoners — about 2/3rds — are Black or Hispanic.So, how did Harris and Bush use this Texas felon list — and their own Florida felon list — to purge Black and Hispanic voters off the Florida voting rolls in 2000, and how could DeSantis do the same this year and in 2024?
