Yesterday's Popular Information newsletter exposed that DeSantis, his campaign, and the Florida Republican Party were smearing a political rival — Karla Hernández, Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor of Florida. DeSantis and his operatives were claiming that, as president of a teachers union, Hernández "protected a sexual predator for years and accompanied him through numerous investigations into his sexual assaults of multiple students." The truth, as Popular Information
Bravo to you, Judd— you are making a place on Disantis’s shit list into a badge of honor!
Our ability to stay focussed on a topic has deteriorated so quickly. The politicians are using it as a tool now... waiting the people out until the next flashy headline/problem/conspiracy takes attention away from the current problem, which never gets resolved. Keep up the good work, Judd!
Please keep writing about these lying scumbags. Keep calling them out on their provable lies. You do amazing work Judd. Keep proving them wrong every day. I love to read it and I love it even more when your newsletter is picked up and shared nationally. Excellent work.
Please be more clear. Deliberate disinformation is know as a LIE. Please use this word.
How many investigative reporters are left out there that meticulously and directly confront disinformation (lies) and stick with it? Judd Legum always hits a nerve and this is exactly how to deal with these people because they ARE dangerous.
Thank you for all you do to fight for our democracy and to expose lies and hypocrisy.
Christine Pushaw is the new Kayleigh McEnany, and is just as mendacious and cruel-hearted. And as for her boss, Ron DeSantis? He scares me even more--he's like his Orange Asscactus mentor, only he is much smarter, which makes him that much more dangerous.
You guys rock… Honestly there’s nothing better than good journalism and exposing scumbag politicians and their paid attack dogs, ￼￼except maybe a cold beer on a warm night￼.
Thank You. So necessary. So important. So much gratitude.
Thank you for poking the hornets nest that is the DeSantis regime. Keep ‘‘em stirred up.
Well done Judd. I am almost amused that DeS is afraid of its own shadow and feels obliged to attack everyone who dares to call them out. Autocrats really hate the truth. Thanks for the update!!!
Deflect and redirect are the main strategies these days for political parties. Once again, kudos to Popular Info and their staff for providing accurate information to the public.
Keep holding DeSantis's feet to the fire. The man is a menace to democracy.
Thank you Judd for all the work you do, its effective and brings truth to light!
Good, good work. The (wrong!) right is really amping up their attack mode on many truth-tellers. They are coming after one of my favorite journalist/historical writers, Ruth Ben-Ghiat, fiercely, too. Good news though: Sarah Palin lost her race last night to Mary Peltola, a real human public servant with a heart. I rejoice in that. Keep the faith, do the work, and roe, roe, roe the vote in November!
