After Islamophobic Remarks, FDP Calls on Ron DeSantis to Return Donations from Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg

Posted

Yesterday, Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg put up an Islamophobic and bigoted post on Facebook. Greenberg is a supporter of Ron DeSantis and has donated $3,300 to his gubernatorial campaign.

"Ron DeSantis should immediately return Joel Greenberg's campaign donations and denounce Greenberg's bigoted and divisive rhetoric. For too long, Ron DeSantis has associated himself with some of the most toxic figures on the far right — and this is just the latest example of DeSantis receiving the backing of noted Islamophobes," said FDP spokesperson Kevin Donohoe. "Floridians deserve a leader who will fight for them and focus on what really matters: creating good-paying jobs, providing a great education, and expanding access to health care. Unfortunately, Ron DeSantis seems more interested in dividing Floridians than laying out a vision to make Florida stronger."
