Gov. DeSantis asks Fla. Supreme Court to enlist grand jury to investigate Broward school district

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has announced that he has filed a petition to form a state-wide grand jury that will investigate the Broward County school district.

DeSantis made the announcement Wednesday in Fort Lauderdale, just a day before the one-year anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

“I think it’s something that may lead to potential accountability measures by a grand jury,” DeSantis said.

The announcement followed requests from the community for DeSantis to suspend BCPS Superintendent Robert Runcie.

Runcie has faced harsh criticism since the shooting at MSD one year ago.

However, DeSantis said he did not have the authority to suspend Runcie.

One year after Parkland, Florida lawmakers renew push to arm teachers -- with help from Ron DeSantis

Lawmakers have revived the idea of arming teachers — and it is gaining support, despite continued opposition from across Florida.

This year, lawmakers have revived the idea of arming teachers — and it is gaining support. A bill expanding the existing “Guardian” program, Senate Bill 7030, passed through a key committee Tuesday, which means it could be one of the first bills the entire Florida Senate will consider once legislative session begins March 5.

“I want someone there to protect my eight grandchildren and their generation,” Sen. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala. “They deserve to have someone ready.”

The Only Human Surprised by Brett Kavanaugh's Abortion Vote Is Susan Collins



-Snip-

Late on Thursday night, when hardly anyone was watching, Justice Brett Kavanaugh decided to conduct a covert op on whatever is left of the political reputation of Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine. You may recall that, when Kavanaugh's nomination was hanging fire, Collins did her Down East Hamlet act for a couple of days before announcing that she would vote for PJ's beer buddy. She explained her decision by saying that Kavanaugh had convinced her that he would respect precedent, including all those precedents that protected a woman's right to full reproductive health, including abortion.

On Thursday night, Kavanaugh proved that, at best, Susan Collins is the biggest all-day sucker in American politics today.
