Shevrin Jones shreds Ron DeSantis’ position on Donald Trump indictment

'Blatantly pandering for the insurrectionist vote.'

A Democratic State Senator is denouncing Ron DeSantis for statements he made about Donald Trump’s indictment.

Shevrin Jones of Miami Gardens issued a statement slamming the Governor for a tweet Thursday on Trump’s legal travails, saying it’s part of a triangulation driven by White House ambitions, with a appeal to base prejudice.

“As Governor DeSantis ramps up his shadow 2024 campaign, it is no surprise he is pulling pages from the Trump playbook and blatantly pandering for the insurrection vote. The Governor is once again stirring the pot with antisemitic rhetoric and actively undermining our judicial process and institutions, all in the name of personal political gain,” Jones said.

The “antisemitic rhetoric” accusation stems from the Governor’s focus on “George Soros funded prosecutors” in the original tweet, which recurs in the other two on-record statements on the former President’s legal issues. Florida Democratic Party Chair Nikki Fried has made similar points to Jones’ argument.

“The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent. Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda,” DeSantis tweeted Thursday.

In remarks in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, the Governor sounded similar themes.

“And I can tell you this: these Soros DAs are a menace to society, a menace to the rule of law,” the Governor said at the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference.

“He, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, they weaponize their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety,” DeSantis contended in Panama City back in March.

Jones contends that DeSantis’ objection to politicized prosecutions is especially ironic.

“His hypocrisy knows no bounds as he shows he will target political opponents when it suits him, going so far as removing duly elected officials from their positions. DeSantis claims to be about the rule of law, but only when it suits his own ambitions — U.S. and Florida Constitution be damned.”

“Our families and communities face challenge after challenge — from the cost of housing and access to healthcare, to keeping our kids safe at school and ability to plan for retirement — and deserve solutions, not yet another politician who only cares about his own priorities and not those of the people,” the State Senator added.

    Good evening America,
    What this means is that Shevrin has failed his constituants at an early stage of the legislative session and is totally aware that he has nothing to help crime, homelessnes, hunger, nothing in his district which he may need Desantis to approve whatsoever.
    Most likely its been party time since opening day and that is likely to continue so whats the harm in Shervrin trashing Desantis and nipping at Desantis’ ankles?
    Shervin next year at least pretend to work thats how we get reelected my player.
    Thank you America,
    Earl Pitts American

        Everything you say here is 100 % True. However, And not to be mean. You forgot to mention the republican Rhinos. They are even worst. It does not matter who is president nor who votes. We live in Stalins’ world today . Remember his great quote. It is not important who votes, but who counts the votes. Dominion is the decider and it no linger is part of the US. It is of the New One world government which we are now entering into. folks. America is gone. It has died. And it has been taken over by the new world order that the First George Bush loved to speak about. The sad and worst part is they are luciferian and evil and they mock God.

        Good morning Billy Blue,
        Congrats to the one and only cray cray leftist idiot living in The Villages. Are you hiding in fear of your neighbors and peeping out your curtians while shaking and sniveling due to MAGA fear?
        They are going to find you out Billy Blue and being a cray cray leftist CNN watcher is a total violation of the HOA rules.
        Run, hide, draw the blinds Billy I think the HOA President has been monitoring your CNN watching and is drawing up the papers to take title to your home per Section 578.204 of the HOA Rules.
        Have a nice day Billy Blue the only lefty idiot living in The Villages,
        Earl Pitts American
