Letter to the Editor: Government of the Corporations, by the Corporations, for the Corporations

While accepting “donations” for tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars from lobbyists, corporations, and special interests may technically be legal for Governor DeSantis, there is no question that is unethical. These are “bribes by another name.” And what they suggest is that our Governor is not the Governor of the people of Florida, but rather the Governor of Corporations based in Florida. Donald Trump has metaphorically set up a summer home in the “swamp” of corporate interests to personally enrich himself as President. Governor DeSantis is following his idol and has set up a metaphorical golf club in the swamp. Or, perhaps, by “draining the swamp” he really meant he was draining it right into his re-election coffers.
