Two of Florida’s newest vaccine clinics have something in common: they’re both in wealthy, white areas, and they both have ties to allies of Gov. Ron DeSantis. As the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported Tuesday, the state recently established two pop-up vaccine clinics: one in the state’s Manatee County, exclusively available to residents of zip codes represented by county commissioner Vanessa Baugh, a top DeSantis ally; and one in Charlotte County, in a gated community developed by former Republican state senator Pat Neal, who wrote in a press release that DeSantis had reached out to him personally. In a statement, a spokesperson for DeSantis told the Herald-Tribune that “the goal is to vaccinate as many seniors as efficiently as possible, and working with senior living communities is a common sense approach, both administratively and logistically.”

According to the Sun-Sentinel, DeSantis responded to the allegations of favoritism on Wednesday by threatening to pull vaccines from the county altogether. “If Manatee County doesn’t like us doing this, we are totally fine with putting this in counties that want it,” he said. “I wouldn’t be complaining.”

21. That's what happens

when the number of your years is higher than the number of your I.Q.. The rethugs in that state prey on those senile idiots.

14. Some folks have an attachment to the land that is stronger than politics.

DeSantis is the perfect Republican tin-pot dictator wannabe. He sees himself as a future President. The truth of the matter is, I don't think that he is very bright. He has all of the attributes to be a national Republican leader.

16. Because it is warmer in the winter.

I plan to winter there eventually.

But I definitely will stay a Michigan resident and own a home here.

17. I was born and raised here and my immediate family all lives here.

Otherwise, there's no way I'd live here where there are too many rich people and fascists - but I repeat myself. I love my son, daughter and sister and they all have jobs here so aren't looking to move. Absent family, we'd probably have a trailer parked on our friends property in Sonora, CA. or be living in NZ. but we certainly would not be here.

18. If more Dems lived there, they could win some elections

including president. People keep moving to Florida for retirement from northern states. The demographics could work out in our favor eventually.

19. when I lived in South Florida in the 80's...

it was crazy (of course), and the politics could be spectacularly corrupt (not unlike Illinois, where I was born and raised), but we had some strong Dems there in state and local office. Obviously not the case anymore. We had planned to move to Key West this past summer, but then Covid. Now, I'm not sure we could live in that state, even though KW is a place unto it's own. Gotta get DeAsshole out in 22!
