He's just making sure all the Floridians he murder/suicided with COVID-19 are still on the books to cast ballots for him this fall.

Careful comrade, Florida Secret Police are watching you!

Yup, this is what a civil war looks like. During a civil war, people in government set up parallel agencies that do jobs already being performed by government. There has to be a kind of mitosis of agencies so that when the civil war is over, if the rebels win, the new agencies replace to old ones.

Headquarter it in Sumter county near The Villages.

Why does this country accept and allow Nazi-wannabes as legitimate figures of authority? Is it really that profitable?

The guy is frickin dangerous. When do the brown shirts arrive.

Stop complaining.  He's just being a job creator. Of course it's government jobs he's creating, at least until he can figure a way to contract it out to the private sector.  He can award a contract to Cyber Ninjas.  We're back in business, baby!

More like a coup, but I agree mainly.

Considering what Desantis does in public, his closet must be an ossuary.  Come on DOJ, do your job, the J part.
 
2022-01-19 8:24:55 AM  
go for it, it always just uncovers maga turds who buy into the bullshiat so hard about election fraud they think well if everyone else is doing it I might as well too.

It's really getting farked up down here in Fla post secondary ed. Citizenship tests, political climate surveys, conflict of interest policies as well as cameras on teachers in K12.
 
2022-01-19 8:39:39 AM  
That's be great when you consider that all voter fraud in Florida is old people voting for president twice - once in Florida and once in their summer residence.

I fully expect a neighbor at my cabin in Wisconsin is going to end up like this. One of them switched their residence to Florida (I forgot why - one stayed with WI and the other switched to FL). The husband is a big trumper.
 
2022-01-19 8:39:42 AM  
Yeah, and it's the Republicans that complain that Democrats are bringing in a 1984 style surveillance and police state.  I farking hate all Republicans.  Farking subhuman garbage.

He's already advanced plans for a state militia.

The only finding this panel has found is that the crime came from the source. That is to say  DeSantis himself.
 
2022-01-19 8:49:02 AM  
If anything is going to make me retire early from teaching it's this gestapo crap! Teachers are giving their all, trying to educate and DeSantis wants to keep the population ignorant because they vote his way!

Americans better pay attention to Florida. He's prepping to export all this Nazi crap nationwide and he has the support of WAY too many ignorant fools ready to walk into his gas chamber era down here.

Godwalk: The guy is frickin dangerous. When do the brown shirts arrive.


He just had a state department of health official fired for suggesting all employees in the department be vaccinated against covid-19.
He also previously had the SWAT team attack a state epidemiologist in her home for contradicting #45s claims about the COVID crisis with data.
DeSantis is a dangerous psychopath and is not fit to hold elected office or any job with responsibility for others.

Headso: go for it, it always just uncovers maga turds who buy into the bullshiat so hard about election fraud they think well if everyone else is doing it I might as well too.


No, that's what the current agency has found. He wants to create a New agency that is overseen by his cronies. He will make sure it finds the crimes he wants it to find like voting while black.

Coup story bro

Remember the "satanic panic" of the 70's, that "didn't exist", as per local (klan "assisted") law enforcement investigations?
That was their arrival.
 
2022-01-19 9:09:23 AM  
The proposed office would have more investigators than law enforcement agencies in some of Florida's biggest cities have to investigate murders, the Tampa Bay Times reported

This is one of these GOP nutty ideas that's difficult to wrap one's head around due to it's absurdity.  He wants to build a giant state agency, bigger than real law enforcement agencies, to investigate imaginary crimes of which there has been zero evidence they've occurred.  The entire GOP is driven by nothing than truthiness.

Nuts.

Conservatism allows grifters and authoritarians free reign as long as they give the base someone to blame/hate.

Its a group with a 6 million dollar annual budget that doesn't parallel any existing state or federal agency, so what are you talking about?

You're thinking of something like a shadow government that insurgents create in places they control, but this ain't that.

This is just a political football used to appease crazies and limit voting access.  Its not Civil War, its just good old voter suppression.
 
2022-01-19 9:24:59 AM  
Is anyone on Fark old enough to remember when Republicans hated big government and hypocrisy?

Problem: Cyber Ninjas has declared bankruptcy to avoid production of documents in a case brought on by @WeAreOversight, and the judge was so unamused that he (notably not a Democrat) not only refused to allow their lawyer to quit the case, but has compelled the Cyber Ninjas CEO Logan to give a deputation.

Cyber Ninjas will have to form a new Florida LLC to commit future election fraud (err, investigation/audit), that is, after their asshole heals from being torn anew.

What would be a good blue-state-based alternative site for the Disney World complex?  The time may come when some of us don't care to travel to Florida anymore, and I believe the Disneyland site is landlocked and can't expand.
 
2022-01-19 9:31:51 AM  
Sounds like NKVD-lite.

Make a bureau and it will find work.

Mike_1962: Godwalk: The guy is frickin dangerous. When do the brown shirts arrive.

He wants his own secret police and army, and the state legislature will give him whatever he wants. Maybe his own farkin' navy, too.
 
2022-01-19 9:34:46 AM  
Specifically I imagine they will target GOTV operations as being vote harvesting operations.
 
2022-01-19 9:40:52 AM  
It's all grift and campaigning.  Arizona did it, Wisconsin is doing it.  Allocate funds for investigation, hire your cronies to hold press conferences talking about all the evidence their finding, never present any evidence, and walk away a little richer, with the rubes convinced there was fraud.
 
2022-01-19 9:42:03 AM  
Tell Governor numbnuts to go full conservative and make it revenue neutral like they want the post office to be. Also, pretty sure 660k for vehicles isn't going to a bid process-which donor will be selling cars to a pissaway project?

I swear if the Dems don't run on this guy being corrupt and crooked, then they deserve to lose Florida another term. Only way DeSantis loses now is if he is still having his sissy fight with Trump.

No. McCarthyism was before I was born.

Because if we don't, poor people get health care and education, and the rich will pay taxes. And I'm gonna be rich too, someday.

I honestly don't see how people aren't getting this.

how about colorado?  blue, and plenty of space over on the eastern plains (where they have nice weather too).

/ever seen the epcot center on weed?

That was never a thing. Republicans say a lot of things that are blatantly untrue.

Call the UN. They investigate voting practices in all the third world countries.
 
2022-01-19 10:54:34 AM  
These spend and spend Republicans love creating more big government bureaucracy. Especially if it means giving their relatives a large salary for a do nothing much job.
 
2022-01-19 11:23:42 AM  
It's all about money.  Much of that money will go to yachts and limos and fund raising parties.  No one will suspect they're not investigating voter fraud while doing election fraud.
 
2022-01-19 11:28:43 AM  
White? Republican? "Please proceed to the voting booth."

Black? Democrat? "Please step aside so we can verify your ID, which we will ultimately decide is fake and either arrest you on the spot and/or prevent you from voting."

The USA is not a third world country, not until 2025, by my calculations.

I do not understand why we're not doing this.

He can put the headquarters in The Villages so the investigators won't have a long commute to get to the suspects
