‘You Can Whiz on my Leg, But Don’t Tell me it’s Raining’

Gotta love Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL). He’s taking on Big Tech and he’s not waiting around to do it.

DeSantis said legislation he’d support also would allow $100,000 daily fines to be levied against a company that removes a political candidate from its platform during an election campaign. Any favorable support a candidate receives from a media company in getting a campaign message out also should be reported as a political contribution, the governor said.

He also would allow people to sue social media firms if they’re de-platformed or otherwise punished, opt out of some online algorithms and authorize Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody to sue companies under the state’s unfair and deceptive trade practices law for punishing individuals for content they post.
