DeSantis is a knucklehead. Florida, tired of the embarrassment? Vote for Democrats.
I think this is hilarious. Screw DeSantis; he deserves this.
Disney has decades experience running things and dealing with bureaucrats than DeSantis.
I thank God everyday that I don’t live in Florida.
> “This board loses, for practical purposes, the majority of its ability to do anything beyond maintain the roads and maintain basic infrastructure.”
Sounds like they got the small government that they always wanted.
You don’t fuck with the Mouse
Gotta love the line complaining about Disney wanting to be king for a day. Dude what do you think DeSantis is doing?
DeSantis has amazingly found a way for me to root for an evil monopolistic corporation for once. Only because he manages to be even worse.
Florida taxes going to millions and millions in attorney fees. Conservatives should hate desantis but no he hates the same people they do.
My favorite part…
That declaration is valid until “21 years after the death of the last

This is fucking hilarious.
A battle between a fascist state and a multinational corporation, and here I am all out of popcorn.
>But board members also approved hiring four outside law firms with Chairman Martin Garcia citing a need for “lawyers that have extensive experience in dealing with protracted litigation against Fortune 500 companies.”
>One of those firms is Cooper & Kirk, which has gotten more than $2.8 million in legal fees and contracts from the DeSantis administration to defend a controversial social media law, a ban on cruise ship COVID-19 “vaccine passport” requirements, and a restriction on felons seeking to vote.
>Cooper & Kirk’s lawyers will bill $795 an hour, according to the firm’s engagement letter. **The boutique firm’s roster of lawyers includes Adam Laxalt, who roomed with DeSantis when he was training at the Naval Justice School in 2005** and made an unsuccessful bid for U.S. Senate last year in Nevada.
>**The firm’s alumni include Republican U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Tom Cotton of Arkansas.**
>The board also approved bringing on Lawson Huck Gonzalez, a law firm that was launched earlier this year. **One of its founders is Alan Lawson, a retired Florida Supreme Court justice.**
Well, that’s interesting. This will be a billing bonanza for those law firms.
Hey Florida! Cha-Ching! Haha!
>“It’s a subversion of the will of the voters and the Legislature and the governor. It completely circumvents the authority of this board to govern.”
They figured it out. They thought they were going to control Mickey but it seems Mickey had different plans. I would bet Disney had this plan in place from day one for just such an occasion and they’ve had years to make sure it sticks.
And DeSantis has hired a firm where his Naval buddy is a partner and billing the FL taxpayers $795/hour. No corruption to see here though.
