Ron DeSantis crushed the Democrats by standing up to this baseless lawsuit

Aug 8, 2022

Democrats thought they finally got one over on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

But Democrats thought wrong.

And Ron DeSantis crushed the Democrats by standing up to this baseless lawsuit.

Governor DeSantis named Renatha Francis as his nominee to replace Justice Alan Lawson on the Florida State Supreme Court.

Francis is an immigrant from Jamaica and the corporate-controlled press and Democrats smeared her as a dangerous extremist due to her membership in the Federalist Society.

The Federalist Society is a mainstream group of conservative lawyers that leftists treat as a bogeyman due to the fact that it exists to train and identify conservatives for judicial nomination.

All of President Trump’s Supreme Court picks were Federalist Society members.

Governor DeSantis tried to nominate Francis to the State Supreme Court two years ago, but Democrats blocked her nomination on a technicality.

State Representative Geraldine Thompson filed a lawsuit, which stopped the nomination on the grounds that Francis did not meet the requirement of being a member of the Florida bar for ten years.

Thompson absurdly claimed Francis was not qualified to serve as a State Supreme Court Justice because of how long she was a member of the Florida bar.

“Floridians lack confidence in the courts because they see that people are being appointed based on a political agenda rather than knowledge of the law and fitness,” Thompson said in an interview with POLITICO. “It’s disturbing.”

DeSantis discussed renominating Francis to the State Supreme Court during a recent press conference and slammed the effort to smear Francis as unqualified.

“We had someone file a lawsuit to try and keep her off the court because they said she can’t be appointed until she reaches the 10 year mark,” DeSantis declared. “It was disappointing . . . it was all politics, it was not anything based in principle.”

Francis’ appointment comes at a crucial time.

The court is set to hear the state’s appeal of a ruling that struck down Florida’s 15-week abortion ban.

A judge ruled Florida’s State Constitution included a right to privacy, which protects abortion on demand.

Conservatives expect DeSantis’ appointments to uphold Florida’s 15-week abortion ban so that way the state can then pass stronger pro-Life laws.

And Governor DeSantis sticking by Renatha Francis’ nomination is the first step in that process.
