Another GOP candidate hit with criminal investigation

Americans are getting used to seeing Trump indicted by Democrats. But now they’re going after someone else in the crowded Republican field.

And another GOP candidate was hit with a criminal investigation.

Democrats can’t stand the idea of an America First conservative taking back power in 2024.

That’s why they’re so hellbent to use the legal system in any way they can to handicap the opposition.

So far, it’s only been Donald Trump that has been smacked with any concrete charges.

But, very soon, another GOP contender could be indicted on false charges.

Following the governor’s flight of scores of immigrants to Sacramento earlier this year, a Democratic California senator has echoed calls for a criminal inquiry on Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL).

On Tuesday, Silicon Valley Assemblymember Evan Low presented a resolution calling for a federal inquiry and “accountability” for DeSantis’ use of the state’s program to transport immigrants to so-called sanctuary areas “under false pretenses.”

“All morally conscious Americans should be concerned that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and his agents – using Florida tax dollars – illegally trafficked vulnerable migrants across state lines,” Low said in a press statement introducing the resolution.

According to Concurrent Resolution 113 of the Florida Legislature, the “Legislature urges the United States Department of Justice to investigate Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for Florida’s Unauthorized Alien Transport Program; and be it further.”

“To lie and deceive human beings just trying to survive and support their families in order to transport them unknowingly to California for the purpose of scoring cheap political points is unconscionable, and these inhumane and illegal actions should be swiftly investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Low said.

DeSantis has exploited the program to move dozens of immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, and California, prompting state officials to call for several federal probes.

In June, Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) called for an investigation after 36 Venezuelan and Colombian immigrants were dropped off in Sacramento from two flights, branding Florida Gov. Rick Scott a “small, pathetic man” on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Months later, Cape and Islands District Attorney Robert Galibois asked the Department of Justice to investigate the transportation of 49 immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard last year.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta requested documents related to migrant flights from Florida officials in June as part of an ongoing law enforcement investigation, emphasizing the importance of transparency in separate letters to DeSantis’ office and the Florida Division of Emergency Management.

In July, DeSantis labeled the California investigation “absurd” on Fox Business, saying that California is a sanctuary state with “benefits for illegal aliens.”

According to Low’s communications director, the new resolution has been sent to the proper committee or committees in the State Assembly for further action.

“Innocent people should not be used as pawns by immoral, power-hungry politicians like DeSantis,” Low said.

“I thank the California Department of Justice, California Attorney General Rob Bonta, Governor Gavin Newsom, and Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar for their quick action to investigate.”

Of course, this is all just political bluster. DeSantis has every right to use Florida taxpayer dollars to address the border crisis Democrats refuse to fix.
