DeSantis Says Florida Will Lift Coronavirus Restrictions to Focus on Voting Restrictions

TALLAHASSEE (The Borowitz Report)—Governor Ron DeSantis announced that Florida will lift its coronavirus restrictions in order to focus all its attention on voting restrictions.

“While the danger posed by the virus has largely dissipated, voting remains as dangerous as ever,” DeSantis said.

The Governor indicated that he was “taking a hard look” at indoor voting, which he said was responsible for “many bad outcomes,” and noted that outdoor voting, involving people placing ballots in mailboxes, could also be curbed.

“Until the danger has passed, we may have to ban voting by groups of five or more people,” he said, adding that it would “depend on who the people were.”

DeSantis said that the measures to restrict voting should be passed into law as soon as possible. He warned, “We must stop the spread of democracy.”

2. That's true, but the Borowitz Report is satire.

3. And that's what makes it such good satire - since it is so close to the truth.

Thanks!

4. Sure is.

I didn't realize it was Borowitz until I opened thread.

How sad is that?

5. Yup, that's what makes Borowitz successful.

These days, it's something we can easily imagine them saying - they have given up subtlety, they just want to prevent the "wrong" people from voting.
