Another Month Passes and DeSantis Fails to Convene Clemency Board

In response to DeSantis’ decision to postpone the Florida Cabinet and Clemency board meetings yet again, the Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement:
“It is completely unacceptable that DeSantis continues to ignore his constitutional responsibility to convene the Florida Cabinet. Not only is DeSantis failing to resolve critical issues facing Florida during a time of crisis, he is also denying Floridians, time and time again, the opportunity to restore their voting rights through the clemency process. I commend Commissioner Fried for fighting to see that the Cabinet works as it is supposed to do and continuing to push to address the pressing issues facing our state.”
