Ron DeSantis turned Florida into an oasis of freedom during the pandemic.
But he’s stepping up his fight against the radical Left.
And Ron DeSantis just put Joe Biden on notice with this one epic move.
As Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis has become a no-holds-barred conservative fighter.
He’s not taking any prisoners in his fight to keep the radical Biden agenda out of his state.
And after the questionable circumstances around the 2020 election, he’s become a leader in the fight for election integrity.
At his State of the State address, DeSantis called on the Republican-held legislature to make the state a leader in election integrity.
“To ensure that elections are conducted in accordance with the rule of law, I have proposed an election integrity unit whose sole focus will be the enforcement of Florida’s election laws,” DeSantis began.
“This will facilitate the faithful enforcement of election laws and will provide Floridians with the confidence that their vote will count,” he continued.
DeSantis added that Florida should “prohibit unsecure, haphazard drop box locations” while increasing the penalties for ballot-harvesting schemes to a third degree felony.
Of course, ballot harvesting was a preferred tactic of Democrats in the 2020 Presidential election.
Ballot harvesting involves sending out third parties to round up masses of mail-in ballots, often dumping them into drop boxes in the late hours of the night.
DeSantis took aim at the Democrats’ vote-by-mail scheme, saying “we also need to ensure that supervisors clean the voter rolls, that only citizens are registered to vote and that mail ballots only go to those who actually request them before each individual election.”
The speech came as Joe Biden was in Georgia demanding the Senate pass the Democrats’ election takeover bill, which would eliminate voter ID, require vote-by-mail in every state, and make ballot-harvesting schemes legal nationwide.
Never afraid of going toe-to-toe with Joe Biden, DeSantis took a shot at the election-rigging bill.
“It is Orwellian doublespeak to invoke the concept of ‘voting rights’ to mean ballot harvesting, prohibiting voter ID, and taxpayer funding of elections. Those are political concepts that erode the integrity of our elections,” he remarked.
This is DeSantis’ latest push for election integrity.
Last year, he signed a bill that enhanced voter ID protections, banned ballot harvesting, and stopped mass mailing of ballots in the Sunshine State.
With DeSantis taking the lead on election integrity, this is another move that will increase his rock star status with conservative voters.
