Adkins Comments Give RPOF a Black Eye

Janet Adkins

In a private gathering during last month’s Republican Party of Florida quarterly meeting, state Rep. Janet Adkins told a group of North Florida GOP activists that the key to defeating Corrine Brown, a black Jacksonville Democrat, is boosting the number of black prisoners in her district.

(Congressional districts are drawn by census population numbers. People in prison are counted as living in a district.)

“You draw [Brown’s seat] in such a fashion so perhaps, a majority, or maybe not a majority, but a number of them will live in the prisons, thereby not being able to vote,” said Adkins, a Nassau County Republican, referring to black residents.

Those comments came during a closed-door meeting of the North Florida Republican caucus. POLITICO Florida obtained audio of her comments.

She called it the “perfect storm” for being able to defeat Brown, a liberal firebrand who has been in Congress for 23 years.

Within 10 hours after the story was released state Rep. Janet Adkins made this reply:

“My comments regarding the proposed realignment of congressional district five (as recommended by the Florida Supreme Court) were an attempt to explain some of issues that came up in debate during the redistricting special session,” Adkins wrote. “I apologize if my statements offended anyone. Because congressional redistricting is a pending legal issue, I will not comment on this matter any further.”

Brown has filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging the legality of the new district, which stretches from Jacksonville to Tallahassee. She has questioned whether a black candidate can be elected in the new east-west district and specifically raised the issue that prisoners are counted among the black voting age population.

Brown’s office said she had no comment Wednesday about Adkins’ comments.

State Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, unsuccessfully tried to amend the congressional map to add more black voters to Brown’s district for these very reasons. She said Wednesday that Adkins’ comments lent credence to the arguments she made during August’s special session.

“She had a grasp that obviously if a candidate of a minority’s choice is going to be African-American, then if more African-Americans are in that district and can’t vote it’s not going to play out that way,” Gibson said.

But Republican colleagues said Adkins, who was not directly involved in the redistricting process because she doesn’t serve on that committee, mischaracterized the genesis of Brown’s east-west district.

Rep. Janet Adkins apologizes for comments article


Arguments for the redistricting trial started today and most likely no decision will be reached until October. Nobody in Congress would make any statements over Adkins or the RPOF actions.

Bush Did Lie About Trump and Florida Casinos

Bush-Trump
If you watch the 3 hour long and really boring presidential debate on September 16th, you may have heard a statement Jeb Bush said about Donald Trump.

Bush said:

Jeb: “The one guy that had some special interest that I know of — that tried to get me my views on something, that was generous and gave me money — was Donald Trump. He wanted casino gambling in Florida.”

Trump reply: “Totally false.”

Here’s the facts of the event:

In the late 1990s, Trump tried to build a multimillion-dollar casino with the Seminole Tribe of Florida, according to CNN. In 1998, he held a fundraiser that raised $50,000 to the Florida Republican Party, which led to Bush’s election as governor, in addition to numerous fundraisers in 1997.

Bush held fast on his policy, noting in 1999 that three Florida referendums voted down casinos, whether on Native American property or otherwise.

Trump hired Mallory Horne, a powerful state politician — he was a former president of the state senate, and a former speaker of Florida’s house — to lobby for the casinos he wanted. By the end of 1998, after Bush was elected, he had given up.

We also found this:

Hope Hicks, a spokeswoman for Trump, said the business “never asked Jeb Bush personally to approve casino gambling.” Roger Stone, a Trump confidante and former campaign adviser, told Fox News this week that Trump has tried to get casino gambling under Bush’s Democratic predecessor, Lawton Chiles, but his efforts “ceased” with Bush’s 1998 election, given Bush’s “well known” opposition to expanding gambling.

Trump’s Florida experience represents a wrinkle in the populist critique he is presenting to voters in his presidential campaign.

Trump has said he knows most elected officials have been bought by donors — because he used to be the one doing the buying.
