In fact, as far as I can tell, the only named enslaver in this section is, in fact, a Black man. Huh.

Huh indeed😠😠😠😠

    Florida officials tried to steer education contract to former lawmaker’s company
    MGT Consulting, led by former Republican lawmaker Trey Traviesa, was in serious talks to do the work before a bid was announced.

    Ana CeballosTimes/Herald Tallahassee Bureau
    Published Jan. 11, 2022
    TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Education Department is under fire for trying to steer a multimillion-dollar contract to a company whose CEO has ties to the state’s education commissioner.

    Records and interviews show that, before the Florida Department of Education asked for bids, it was already in advanced talks with the company to do the work, subverting a process designed to eliminate favoritism.

    The company is MGT Consulting, led by former Republican lawmaker Trey Traviesa of Tampa, a longtime colleague of the state’s education commissioner, Richard Corcoran.

    During a bidding process that was open for one week, MGT was the only pre-approved vendor to submit a proposal — pitched at nearly $2.5 million a year to help the struggling Jefferson County School District with its academic and financial needs.


    Members of the Jefferson County School Board have been outraged for months, seeing the entire process as a way for the state to siphon more money out of a rural, majority-Black school district and into the pockets of the politically connected.

    The decision to hire a company to help the three schools — and have Jefferson County pay for it with federal coronavirus relief dollars — came from the Department of Education, they say.

    “I’m just going to be honest with you. It’s money,” Jefferson County School Board member Bill Brumfield said in an interview last month. “It’s money and it’s politics, and they are just trying to kick Jefferson County around again like a bunch of little country bumpkins sitting over there and knowing nothing.”

      I heard this last night on NewsNation.

      They’re trying to hawk their network as independent and balanced but my impression is they’re more right wing than balanced, especially Abrams.

      I think Abrams was just pandering to wingnuts.

      Trump committed crimes in the state of Georgia and he needs to be indicted and put on trial for those crimes. Period.

    There are six interrelated false media narratives being pushed that I’d like to debunk.

    I sometimes won’t stress the false narratives as much as I’ll stress what’s true.

    1) Prosecutors do NOT have to prove Turnip knew he lied. It doesn’t matter to prove his guilt.

    Example: I say the money in First Natl Bank is all mine, then I go steal it. Prosecutors don’t have to prove I knew the money wasn’t mine. They just have to prove I took it.
