Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed a new voting bill into law live on “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning.
According to the Florida governor’s website, Senate Bill 90 (SB 90) was passed and signed with the intention of “strengthening voter identification, prohibiting the mass mailing of ballots, banning ballot harvesting and prohibiting private money from administering elections in our state.”
“Floridians can rest assured that our state will remain a leader in ballot integrity,” DeSantis said. “Elections should be free and fair, and these changes will ensure this continues to be the case in the Sunshine State.”
Of course, those on the left are crying voter suppression.
Marc Elias, lawyer for Democrats, filed a federal lawsuit shortly after DeSantis signed the bill into law.

Not only that, but now the hashtag #DeathSantis is trending, because the social media left need to take down another Republican simply for strengthening the integrity of elections.
