Yesterday on the floor of the Florida Senate, Don Gaetz read a prepared statement that concluded with the accusation that he had been “bullied and sucker punched.” He also apologized – sort of. Mr. Gaetz never mentioned how he conducted these state-wide listening tours deceiving everyone that he was gathering input from the public. One senator rose and said that what Don Gaetz just stated in his speech was beneath the dignity of the Senate. The President said he would take it under advisement.
One thing everyone in the Senate knew (and we all know ) is that no one, I mean no one, bullies Don Gaetz. To say he has a forceful personality is an understatement. But, he did apologize, sort of, which to date we have never heard the slightest hint of remorse for what he did to the people of Florida. It is a positive sign, sort of.
