Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, is exposed by obtained emails where his campaign team requested that guns be banned from his election event in the most sneaky way possible. John Iadarola and Francesca Fiorentini break it down on The Damage Report.

Ron DeSantis Wanted Guns Banned At Election Party But Didn’t Want To Be Blamed: Report – https://www.huffpost.com/entry/ron-desantis-wanted-guns-banned-at-election-party-but-didnt-want-to-take-the-blame-report_n_63e7be3fe4b07f036b9d5723

“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) wanted guns banned from his election-night party in Tampa last year but wanted to blame city officials, according to a new report.

Emails obtained by The Washington Post reveal the sensitive request made by DeSantis’ campaign to city officials in Tampa prior to a Nov. 8 election party. DeSantis, who received a 100% rating from the National Rifle Association last year, didn’t want any guns at his event. He also didn’t want anyone to know it was his decision, according to the new emails.

“DeSantis/his campaign will not tell their attendees they are not permitted to carry because of the political optics,” Chase Finch, the Tampa Convention Center’s safety and security manager, said in an Oct. 28 email to other city officials about the request.

In another email to city employees, Finch said, “it sounds like they want us to say it’s our policy to disallow firearms within the event space if anyone asks.””
