About this Episode

This latest episode of Sunrise has a bit of a celebrity feel to it … starting with Britney Spears. Congressman Charlie Crist has filed a bill that would give new legal rights to people who end up having their lives controlled by a court-ordered guardian of conservatorship; he has a Republican co-sponsor.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Spears’ court battle against her dad inspired the "FREE" bill; it would affect more than a million Americans.

— The Tampa Bay Bucs are honored at the White House for winning the Super Bowl. But President Joe Biden says this goes far beyond what they did on the football field.

— Biden dropped a couple of jokes, but Bucs quarterback Tom Brady had the best lines.

— Rep. Dotie Joseph talks about voter suppression in the Florida legislature.

— A state Senator (who serves as chair of the Florida GOP) is investigated over allegations of sexually harassing a male aide. The party apparently concluded it did not happen.

— And finally, authorities ordered a Florida Man not to toot his own horn on Fort Myers Beach.
