14. I lost a house in a storm. I was still registered to vote.

This is just not true.

Do you really believe if your house was destroyed by fire tonight that somehow you couldn't vote in the next election? Do you really actually believe that?

Those counties hit are very very red. No blue counties were affected. Death Sentence will move heaven and earth to be sure those people get to vote while he does everything possible to ensure the Democratic counties have far less access. Those are the places to worry about.

4. Yeah, it's always the working/poor class that get the worst of it.

However, these working class folks are largely repugs, along with their rich brethern. If it was in Miami, you would definitely have the right call.

6. Never let a good crisis go to waste

What did Desantis win by the last time? 30,000-something votes?

With the general election roughly five weeks away, watch how Republicans will make every effort possible to tally as much of Lee, Collier, and Charlotte Counties as possible. Republicans NEED those votes for senator and governor.

I don't want to be negative, but conditions ripe for Republican shennigans.

Hell, they might even allow every republican to vote twice.

9. The bigger problem is those that have to flee the state

There already was a housing crisis in the state, well now it's even worse. Where will people live in tents? Watch the rental companies jackup current rents on viable properties.
