Florida Politics reports:
Gov. Ron DeSantis is appointing Tina Descovich, a leader of one of the nation’s leading parental rights groups, to the Florida Ethics Commission.
The Governor’s Office notes that Descovich, a co-founder of Moms for Liberty, “was previously elected to the School Board of Brevard County in 2016 and served as the President of the Florida Coalition of School Board Members. Descovich earned her bachelor’s degree in public relations from Valdosta State University.”
DeSantis is courting the group’s support like other GOP hopefuls. He spoke earlier this summer at the group’s national convention in Philadelphia, where he offered warnings to “drag queens” about “messing with our kids.”
