The most based governor in all of America, Ron DeSantis, keeps winning and winning and winning.
Earlier this year, DeSantis put the kibosh on vax mandates in the state of Florida, making it illegal to fire employees based on their vaccination status.
Leon County, which contains the state capitol, Tallahassee, decided to break the law and test the governor by firing 14 workers for refusing to get the jab.
Governor DeSantis responded in maybe the best way possible.
Yep. The health department in the state of Florida has leveled a $3.5 million fine against Leon County for violating the law put in place by Governor DeSantis.
According to Fox News, however, Leon county is resisting paying the fine:
Leon County, which includes the capital of Tallahassee, balked at the $3.5 million fine, claiming its vaccination requirement and subsequent firing of 14 employees were legal and accused Gov. Ron DeSantis of being political.
"The governor's position in this instance, unfortunately, appears to be less of a public health strategy and more about political strategy," Leon County Administrator Vincent Long said.
Translation: "We don't like the law, and we don't like DeSantis, so we aren't going to listen to him."
You know, like a petty child.
DeSantis explained the purpose of the anti-mandate law and why it is crucial to defend these workers:
"These are people that, presumably, have been serving throughout this whole time and now all of a sudden they're basically getting kicked to the curb," DeSantis said in a news conference about the fired employees.
"It is unacceptable that Leon County violated Florida law, infringed on current and former employees' medical privacy, and fired loyal public servants because of their personal health decisions," DeSantis spokesperson Taryn Fenske said in a release. "Governor DeSantis will continue fighting for Floridians' rights and the Florida Department of Health will continue to enforce the law."
Desantis goes on, on Twitter:
DeSantis and the state of Florida are actively battling tyranny and doing the right thing. He's the leader of the conservative movement and champion of individual liberties. We all need to follow his lead.
