Florida Secretary of State Mike Ertel resigns after Halloween blackface photos emerge

Michael Ertel, the newly appointed Secretary of State of Gov. Ron DeSantis, has resigned after photos emerged of him posing as a Hurricane Katrina victim in blackface at a private Halloween party 14 years ago.


The photos obtained by the Tallahassee Democrat were shown to the Governor's Office on Thursday morning. Hours later it issued a statement.

"The governor accepted Secretary Ertel's resignation," the Governor's Office said.

2. Fourteen years ago he would have been around age 35.



Why the F would an adult think there is any humor in doing something like this?

4. The nightmare is just beginning.

Ertel stuck around long enough to replace Susan Bucher. New forms of voter suppression in the pipeline to Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
