Cruz- Democrats Against Parental Rights Bill

The video appears to show state senators Loranne Ausley, Janette Cruz, Tina Scott Polsky, and Lori Berman singing “Gay, gay, gay, my daughter’s gay.” 

On Election Integrity: SB 524- Should rename the bill voter intimidate and voter suppression… we aren’t protecting anything let me explain why I feel this way… if I need help with a law I go to a lawyer to get a legal opinion, if I am sick I go to a doctor… we know and trust them…we went to the people with experience… I went to those who I trust the supervisors of elections those who insure your vote counts… this is just not happening in the manner in which we are trying to scare people into thinking it is happening.

Kelli Stargel- Bills

Most recently Senator Stargel was the party sponsor for the 15 week reduction in abortion: 

When I got pregnant at 17 Planned Parenthood said I would never be anything if I had my child.  Having my child was not a choice but a baby.  This bill is reasonable…not what I want because I believe life begins at conception.

And, one of the party spokespersons for the Parental Right bill:

If you are going to have this discussion (referencing sexual identity) you are going to include the parents … This bill is not intended to hurt students or out gay children but strengthen the family unit. This bill is saying we are making the parents part of this conversation.

No stalking order for rival in GOP candidate murder plot

There’s no evidence that Braddock, a former Marine, had such contacts in foreign organized crime or took any steps to carry out a murder plot. He did not testify in the civil stalking case and has not been charged with any crime.

His attorney, Kevin Hayslett, said Luna blew minor contacts with Braddock out of proportion and that, as a political candidate in such divisive times, she should expect some uncomfortable conversations.

Pedicini - Trojan Horse?

Anthony Pedicini - Trojan Horse?   (click on website title for more information)

How good is Republican political consultant Anthony Pedicini at what he does? Pedicini’s track record of winning Republican primaries has earned him a reputation-----a reputation for dirty politics (Google him). 

But just how reliable is he during General Elections when it’s down to one Republican and one Democrat? 

A quick analysis of his performance shows when it comes to General Elections - when Republicans really need to win - Anthony Pedicini has lost more races than he’s won.  

Some are quietly whispering that Democrats are the real winners when running against Pedicini’s Republican clients.  Take for example, the Hillsborough Board of County Commissioners.

In 2018, Pedicini’s BOCC candidates lost in the General Election....

Pedicini-How Not To Get Elected In West Tampa

Guido Maniscalco celebrated a big victory over Jackie Toledo on Tuesday night. It was a big win for grassroots over money, Democrats over Republicans, blue collar over silk stockings, West Tampa over South Tampa and honesty over ugliness. It also was a chance, once again, for a La Gaceta-endorsed candidate to beat a Tampa Tribune-backed one.

Referendum to increase taxes- School Board Millage

"I don’t want our families to feel guilty because they’re choosing to pay their rent and mortgages and put food on the table versus supporting this referendum," said Stacy Hahn, a Hillsborough County School Board Member.

Toledo Another setback for the LGBTQ community

“Protecting LGBT people from discrimination is a bipartisan issue,” Tampa Republican Rep. Jackie Toledo said when she filed the House bill in the fall. “This commonsense legislation is pro-business and would boost Florida’s economy.”

Toledo is one of 46 sponsors of the House bill (HB 161). And she is one of 10 Republicans supporting the measure.

Toledo- HB-482 Prohibit Discrimination

From Florida Family Policy: Why we oppose- (TALKING POINTS)

This bill would allow men to use and access women's private and intimate spaces, including showers, locker rooms, dressing rooms, spas, and bathrooms in places of employment, YMCA, gyms, domestic violence shelters, summer camps, schools, etc.
This bill creates a new lawsuit for disgruntled employees to sue employers and small businesses for "claims of discrimination" by the LGBTQ population. 
Similar bills have been used around the country as a weapon to punish creative professionals who are people of faith who wish to live and at in accordance sincerely help religious beliefs in commerce and business such as cake bakers, videographer, photographers, bed-an-breakfast owners, and other commercial vendors, who refused to provide their goods and services for the same-sex marriage ceremonies.

Toledo-HB 161- Prohibited Discrimination

OPPOSE: HB 161, Prohibited Discrimination, by Toledo (Prime-Cosponsor, Webb) /SB 206 by Rouson: This bill prohibits “discrimination” based on sexual orientation and gender identity in public lodging establishments and public food service establishments. It revises provisions of Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992 and the Fair Housing Act to include sexual orientation and gender identity. The bill also purports to provide an exception for constitutionally protected free exercise of religion. The “exception” reads, “This section does not limit the free exercise of religion guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the State Constitution.” Such an exception is vague and leaves business owners who have sincerely held religious or moral beliefs open to penalties. This bill would be especially onerous to people who own small businesses.

Neither of these bills were heard in any committees of reference this Session....

Toledo-Tampa GOP consultant steers his candidates away from public forums-Pedicini

Pedicini is known for his slashing negative campaigns, often using anonymous or shell political committees to produce factually distorted attack mailers and advertising, and relishes his role as a political bad boy.

Why RINO's Continue to Win

RINO- Republican in Name Only (not conservatives)

Republican Primary voter turn out is historically low. 

This is how the Establishment RINOs win. They micro target the “Republican Super Voters” who reliably vote in every Primary. By making those specific voter contacts, the Establishment retains control of most elected offices. 

Constitutional conservatives need to get their game on and know how to play.
