The Republican-controlled Florida Senate quickly voted Wednesday to dissolve Disney World’s Reedy Creek Improvement District. The Senate voted 23-16 to dissolve Reedy Creek, with Sen. Jeff Brandes the only Republican to vote against Sen. Jennifer Bradley’s bill. Critics of the governor say the bills were meant to punish Disney, Florida’s largest single-site employer, for opposing the so-called “don’t say gay” law signed by DeSantis last month.
Everyone needs to remember that Disney brought this onto themselves. They thought they could buy Republican politicians and give LBGT community “ally” lip service as they said nothing about the “Don’t Say Gay Bill” until an immense backlash after it was voted on and signed into law.
This story should be a very interesting year in Florida.
