The Sentinel asked Fine about why he waited to get Disney's blessing before filing this legislation.

"It was very important to me that it not damage Disney’s business. COVID’s been hard enough," Fine said at the time.

“According to text messages between Bogdanoff and Fine, before filing the bill, the two of them first ran the proposal by Walt Disney Co.’s Disney Vacation Club and the American Resort Development Association, the timeshare industry’s trade association, for approval. The messages were obtained by the Orlando Sentinel under public records laws.”

I have never EVER subscribed to or believed in any conspiracy theory in my life. That being said, what I'm about to say, I know, but please hear me out. The new Florida law, HB7, which forbids CRT from being taught in math classes from K-12 here in Florida has resulted in only
ONE publisher of textbooks in the country, Houston-based Accelerated Learning to be eligible to supply books to the State of Florida, out of ALL of the publishers of textbooks in the country! When I first heard this last night, my first thought was who is this company and how is
it that they are the only ones? Well, this morning on the front page of the Palm Beach Post it all seemed to fall into place. The company, Accelerated Learning, is a Houston-based text book publishing company. My thoughts immediately went to what is their connection to

Ron DeSantis and the Republican Party? It turns out that up until 2020, the CEO of The Carlyle Group, the global investment group that acquired Accelerated in 2018, was none other than the newly-elected government of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin. He had been with Carlyle for 25 years

Since taking office, Youngkin has pushed legislation that mimics Florida's almost to the letter. Meaning, the company that he was affiliated with until running for government, would benefit from legislation he's pushing through. How many other Republican states are going to do

the same thing, only get their textbooks from this one company? Here's hoping that some industrious report does a really deep dive into the connection between DeSantis and this company to see how much they have contributed to his re-election campaign and to Youngkin's campaign.

Like I said, I have never subscribed to conspiracy theories and I know this sounds like one, but I truly believe this warrants an investigation.

So. An unexpected twist with the moRon DeSantis / Disney thing?

Wouldn’t the FL legislature stance violate their precious Citizens United decision?

Former tRump/GOP aid sentenced to 12 years for child (baby!) porn!!!

W T M F ???? 🤬🤬🤬🤬

This is why EVERY Republican accusation is a confession. Every time. All the time. This happens ALL the time. Conservatives get up in arms and accuse democrats of all kinds of heinous things when THEY are the ones actually doing it!!
