Upcoming Events: No Known Events

A) Adam Putnam (R) U.S. Sugar has donated $340,000 to his PAC, Florida Grown, since January 2017. Florida Crystals has donated $65,000.

B)  Adam Putnam (R) accused rival Ron DeSantis of backing a massive tax increase that would hurt Florida’s economy, claimed groceries, gas, home purchases would all cost 23 % more What Adam Putnam fails to mention in the ad is the following: The bill HR25 which had been introduced in congress 10 times. The Fair Tax Act is to introduce a 23 percent federal sales tax that would replace other federal taxes. The bill eliminates income, estate, payroll, and gift taxes, as well as the Internal Revenue Service itself.  This act would only apply on the purchase of new items, not items like a used car. used furniture, etc.  Also calls for a monthly payment to all family households of lawful U.S. residents as an advance rebate, or “prebate”, of tax on purchases up to the poverty level.  The Fair Tax plan does not appear in DeSantis campaign materials. in fact, He’s running on low taxes and limited regulation in Florida.”

C) Andrew Gillum (D): The Tallahassee mayor has not received any contributions from the sugar industry, BUT. he did take $250,000-dollar donation the best-known Socialist in the world, the man who turned his back on his Jewish people and supported Hitler, George Soros

D) DeSantis (R) vocally opposes sugar subsidies, calling them “costly” to taxpayers. Since then, the sugar industry stopped contributing to him, and their relationship has soured.

E) Gwen Graham (D): announced she would not accept sugar donations – Did accept $17,400 in 2014 & 15 said she would donate same amount to the Non-Profit Indian River Keeper.

F) Philip Levine (D): The former Miami Beach mayor will not accept sugar donations, he announced in Martin County

G) Candidates running for governor 4 of the 7 running are multi-millionaires Jeff Greene (D) – $3.8 billion net worth, Philip Levine (D) – $100 million, Gwen Graham (D) – $14.9 million, Adam Putnam (R) – $8.7 million, Chris King (D) – unknown (but in the millions), Ron DeSantis (R): -$538,000, Andrew Gillum (D) – unknown (but a “non-millionaire”), Bob White (R) Not Listed

H) Adam Putnam (R) posting false & deceptive ads about Rep. DeSantis, this time that DeSantis voted to allow illegal immigrants to receive welfare benefits voting against the 2104 Farm Bill.  Taking a chapter out of Sun Tsu – all warfare is based on deception – allies of Putnam, based on an appallingly dishonest local blogger, are suggesting that Putnam’s opponent, Rep. Ron DeSantis, voted to give food stamps to illegal aliens — by voting against the food stamp-laden 2014 farm bill! The facts: DeSantis voted against the bill because the statist 2014 farm bill, was full of unconstitutional subsidies, Stalinist price controls, and codified Obama’s baseline of food stamp enrollment.

There was before and still is after the vote, contained boilerplate language in the Farm Bill to ensure legal verification for eligibility. Section 4015 dictates that “a state agency shall be required to use an immigration status verification system E-Verify” to determine eligibility of welfare and food stamps. This would eliminate Illegal Aliens. DeSantis was one of 63 republicans and 103 democrats who voted against the 2014 Farm Bill. The farm bill banned illegal immigrants, college students, lottery winners and dead people from getting food stamps, plus the fact that Federal Law already banned illegals from receiving food stamps it was the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996  

I) Adam Putnam (R) also says DeSantis voted against work requirement for Food Stamp recipients: Federal law already requires many able-bodied food stamp users to work or attend training programs. This program was also part of the farm bill DeSantis voted against. Immaterial the laws Putnam is pointing to were not affected as they were already in effect, this is a deceptive play on words!

J) Adam Putnam (R) also spread deceptive lies regarding DeSantis taking money from out of state donors, “It’s suspicious that people who can’t even vote in Florida want to support Candidates in Florida”.  Apparently, he forgets that several million people who have winter residents here and summer up north, are residents of Florida as I was for 10 years when I resided in Colorado. Plus, many national business interests have factories, stores, and employee Florida residents.

K)  Adam Putnam’s (R) letter I received last week, he states the following: “Sadly, my republican primary opponent once supported a plan to impose 23 % national sales taxes” Another deceptive lie, he fails to mention that this was during debate of the Fair tax which would replace all federal income taxes (including the alternative minimum tax, corporate income taxes, and capital gains taxes), payroll taxes (including Social Security and Medicare taxes), gift taxes, and estate taxes with a single broad national consumption tax on retail sales. The Fair Tax Act (H.R. 25/S. 

So what you see above are a lot of Deceptive lies that Mr. Adam Putnam is spreading on the airwaves, in letters and poster, unfortunately to truth abiding people, he is doing himself a major disfavor.
