In the latest “Brew-haha” of Florida politics, Governor Ron DeSantis, who led the charge of boycotting “woke” Bud Light, now wants to sue the company for losing money. Why? Because he forgot that the Florida Pension fund has invested over $50 million in the company. So while cheering on the devastating loss of revenue the historic company was experiencing, in part from attacks by DeSantis and his lapdogs, they were also celebrating the losses of his own pension fund and its beneficiaries, i.e., teachers, police, firefighters, and others. That’s right, Florida’s own employees are suffering as a result of his “go woke, go broke” campaign.
In DeSantis Land, however, he’s not taking responsibility for any of it. In fact, he blames Bud Light’s parent company, InBev, for the losses in Florida’s investment in them, simply because they didn’t align with his political views.
Now he wants to use more taxpayer dollars to sue them. For someone who attacks those who swing both ways, he has no problem playing on both sides.
“So what we’re doing since we do have these shares, we believe that when you take your eye off the ball like that, you’re not following your duty to do the best you can for your shareholders,” DeSantis said on Fox News’ Jesse Watters.
