Florida GOP Rep Intros Bill To Ban The Democratic Party

Florida Politics reports:

Sen. Blaise Ingoglia is sponsoring the “Ultimate Cancel Act,” which would eliminate all political parties that once used slavery as part of its platform. While “Democratic Party” isn’t mentioned in the bill, Ingoglia said that’s his target.

“For years now, leftist activists have been trying to ‘cancel’ people and companies for things they have said or done in the past. This includes the removal of statues and memorials, and the renaming of buildings,” he said. “Using this standard, it would be hypocritical not to cancel the Democratic Party itself for the same reason.”

The measure (SB 1248) would switch Democratic voters to no-party voters or give them the option of choosing another party. Registered voters of that party would receive notices from the state that their party has been “canceled” and that they’re now no-party voters.

Ingoglia first appeared on JMG in May 2021 when he introduced an ultimately failed bill that would have banned giving water to people waiting in line to vote. Ingoglia was chair of the Florida GOP from 2015 to 2019.
