This article by Patrick Howley originally appeared at The Daily Caller:
Republican Party of Florida chairman Blaise Ingoglia is facing a serious scandal involving mismanagement of state party funds. Ingoglia is running for re-election for chairman Saturday in Orlando against challenger Christian Ziegler.
Ingoglia’s state party re-imbursed the personal charge card of a twentysomething staffer for former Marco Rubio chief of staff and current Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran. Records show that the re-imbursements totaled more than $1.2 million.
The scandal is similar to a different case involving Rubio, who consistently charged the Republican Party of Florida for personal expenses. But this current scandal is more recent, and potentially more damning. Re-imbursements went for lavish steak and lobster dinners, cigars, and expensive hotels in New York City.
Ingoglia’s party spent more than $15,000 on untraceable American Express gift cards in early 2015. I found Ingoglia, a state representative, at the Florida state capitol in Tallahassee to ask him about it. Here’s what happened:
Ingoglia is running against challenger Christian Ziegler, a close friend of key figures from the Donald Trump campaign. Ziegler’s candidacy presents a contrast to Ingoglia, who is closely tied to Rubio but has a contentious relationship with Governor Rick Scott, who is supporting Ziegler.
My efforts to expose Ingoglia’s dealings have come under fire in Florida political circles, with Ingoglia’s camp accusing me of negative campaigning. Though I met with Ziegler (after he announced his candidacy) I am in no way working for him. I am simply trying to expose the scandalous doings of a Florida political machine that rarely gets opposed, and has grown complacent with its power. My efforts to expose this conduct will continue through Saturday’s election and beyond.
Presidential Debates Set to Ignore National Security, Immigration, and Second Amendment
Ignoring the issues important to Americans.
The 2020 presidential debates are now guaranteed to ignore the critical national political topics of immigration and the Second Amendment, with only a passing discussion on national security.
In a remarkably biased favor to the Joe Biden campaign, moderator Kristen Welker de-emphasized foreign policy as a planned topic of the third debate, structuring it around a reliable list of leftist-friendly topics. The planned topics are the pandemic, race relations, climate change, national security & “leadership,” a colored term for Welker castigating the President over what she sees as mean tweets.
SV News has reported that Welker has scrapped foreign policy questions alltogether after the revelation of Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings involving his father with Burisma.

The third (de facto second) presidential debate will include yet another segment on “Race in America,” in which a leftist moderator will harangue the President on the existence of supposed “white supremacist” groups and demand the bow to the elitist lie of “white privilege.”
Immigration was entirely ignored during the first presidential debate, and it seems more than likely that it’ll be swept under the rug during this one, unless President Trump goes out of the way to mention his policy accomplishments on the matter. The Second Amendment has been wholly ignored, as well.
Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien penned a letter to what he termed the BDC (Biden Debate Commission) questioning as to why the traditional focus on foreign policy in the third presidential debate was being replaced, at the very moment Hunter Biden’s highly suspicious personal foreign business dealings have been placed under scrutiny.

More than 50% of American citizens describe both these issues as “very important” in recent polling- more so than climate change and “race and ethnic inequality.” Yet, seemingly endless racial conversations have been featured at both presidential debates, and expounded upon at length at both electoral town halls last week.
Joe Biden has promised that he will not deport any illegal aliens, except for those convicted of violent felonies. This would represent a dramatic repudiation of American immigration law in itself, and could lead to truly massive new levels of illegal immigration. This stands to be totally ignored in the debate process.
It’s time to scrap the biased Commission on Presidential Debates. These events should be conducted with one liberal journalist and one conservative journalist, as opposed to corporate news hacks who masquerade as “neutral” while arranging a leisurely walk in the park for the pro-establishment Democrat candidate.
