Again the Libs Of TikTok with smears of pedophilia and attacks against teachers. Yet some people still believe the lies this group puts out about trans people, and kids being rushed into surgery or forced to transition. Hugs
Popular Information reports:
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), his campaign, and the Florida Republican Party have launched a coordinated attack on Karla Hernández, the Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor of Florida. They claim Hernández, as president of the United Teachers of Dade (UTD) union, “protected a sexual predator for years and accompanied him through numerous investigations into his sexual assaults of multiple students.” This claim, Popular Information has learned, is false.
The allegation against Hernández appears to have originated on Twitter from a notorious right-wing disinformation account, Libs of Tik Tok. News of Hernández’s selection as the Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor, running on a ticket with Charlie Crist, was first reported on August 26 at 2:01 PM Eastern. At 8:36 PM, Libs of Tik Tok posted that Hernández was involved in a coverup “for a teacher who pled guilty to sexual assault of a student.”
But it is false that Hernández “protected” Wendell Nibbs or “accompanied him through numerous investigations.” The known allegations against Nibbs span from May 2004 to May 2016. Hernández did not become president of UTD, which represents more than 28,000 educators, until May 2016.
When an investigation into a teacher is criminal, UTD does not play any role, a union spokesperson told Popular Information. UTD confirmed that, after Hernández became president in 2016, UTD had no involvement with the investigation into Nibbs.
As the allegations against Hernandez failed to penetrate major media outlets, DeSantis himself voiced the debunked allegations. “You do not put union politics ahead of middle school students who are in danger of being sexually abused,” DeSantis said on Tuesday.
If only they could and would be held accountable for theses malicious slanderous lies Character assassination’s
“It’s not lying when you’re a Republican desperate to have illegitimate power over others.”
I wish people would judge someone by the tactics they stoop to. I don’t mind hardhitting stuff as long as it’s true. This acceptance of utter lying unapologetic spewing of batshit as a cool tactic is a major reason I despise any and all GOPers.
To Republicans, it’s not lying. It’s just “staying on message”.
Republicans can’t run on policy since they do nothing to improve the lives of their constituents. Hate and lies are all they have.
Well lets hope the democrats get a move on and are planning on calling the press together and call out the lies… and use the word LIES and point out how they have nothing to run on except fake take toc conspiracy theories and hate mongering . But it is Florida so ………..
False claims from a Republican ??!!??
You gonna tell me next that water is wet?
