The Governor signs a controversial election bill — and kicks the hornet nest. Gov. Ron DeSantis invited FOX & Friends to broadcast the signing live from Trumpland near Mar-a-Lago in front of an invitation-only audience while the press was denied access.
Also on today’s Sunrise:
— We got a lot of feedback … no one was proud.
— Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried responded to the election bill signing by calling DeSantis a dictator who doesn’t care about people.
— The League of Women Voters responded with a lawsuit, saying there was never a reason to pass the bill in the first place because it was based on the big lie that there was widespread voter fraud.
— On the Sunrise interview, a conversation with Patti Brigham, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida.
— DeSantis is also under fire for playing Santa Claus with someone else’s money. Democrats on Florida’s congressional delegation say DeSantis is bragging about providing COVID-19 bonuses for teachers and first responders without admitting the money is from The American Rescue Act, which every Republican in Congress opposed.
— And finally, a Florida Woman is facing a felony charge for battery with a burger.
