DeSantis And Florida GOP Spread Vicious Debunked Smear Of Crist’s Running Mate Started By LibsOfTikTok – JMG

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.”

Mediaite reports:

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.

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.

  1. Scottie, the Florida governor has had a long history of trouble with the truth dating back to when he was a Congressman. He has been as inane with his remarks as are Gosar, Taylor-Greene, Gohmert, et al. are with theirs. Sadly, he is in a position where he can make changes based on his opinions. The others can just be ignored. Keith

    1. Hello Keith. I admit to not knowing much about DeathSantis until he became governor. Today and yesterday, I have been reading how the republicans are all screaming how divisive Biden’s speech was and how mean Biden was. The right wing media is all upset that Biden was name calling and stirring up hate against republicans. Yet that is what the republicans have been doing for years, and people like Marge Greene, DeathSantis along with the other republican elected trolls have been calling the left pedophiles, groomers, saying that Biden wants to chop up little kids’ body parts and trump / Graham have been calling for civil war … just so much more. I am tired of the childish playing of the victim card. The right can dish it out, but they scream and pout if anyone plays hardball with them. They cannot take it. DeathSantis is a thug and bully. Hugs
