Storyboys – “It’s all connected” OR the unified theory of Florida GOP corruption

This week we have another Storyboys episode and Q is going deep on the confluence of scandals encompassing former-Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg, Rep. Matt Gaetz, Frank Artiles, phony political candidates,  electoral fraud, misappropriation of public funds, bitcoin fires, underage sex trafficking, and more the GOP’s favorite things. We explore how Florida is a test lab for the Republican Party’s most perverse peccadilloes, and how it got that way.
