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.

Democrat Lawmaker: Send Trump to War Crimes Tribunal for Recommending Hydroxychloroquine
Trump derangement syndrome hits a new low.
A Democrat state lawmaker from the state of Ohio has suggested that she will be recommending President Donald Trump to The Hague for war crimes because he suggested hydroxychloroquine could be used to treat coronavirus.
“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow,” Ohio State Rep. Tavia Galonski wrote in a tweet on Sunday night. “Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.”

President Donald Trump has come under fire from the fake news media for trying to get medicines and treatments not approved by the FDA into the hands of individuals afflicted with coronavirus.
Trump has been a proponent of bypassing FDA regulations in certain instances to get medicine to the sick since he signed the “Right to Try Act” into law in 2018.
“People who are terminally ill should not have to go from country to country to seek a cure — I want to give them a chance right here at home,” Trump said in May 2018 before he signed the law allowing experimental medications and treatments to be used in certain instances.
A study of doctors throughout the world has found that hydroxychloroquine is the “most effective therapy” for coronavirus. The study, conducted by the health care polling firm Sermo, found that hydroxychloroquine is underprescribed in the US in comparison to other countries.
“Outside the US, hydroxychloroquine was equally used for diagnosed patients with mild to severe symptoms whereas in the US it was most commonly used for high risk diagnosed patients,” the survey found.
Trump is repeating what the doctors are saying regarding coronavirus, but the Democrats are desperate to stifle possible solutions if it means scoring political points.
“I am a fan of that [drug] and we’ll see what happens. I have seen things that are impressive. We’ll see. We’ll know soon. When you get to safety, this is prescribed for many years for people to combat malaria, which was a big problem,” Trump said about hydroxychloroquine.
“Everybody knows the level of the negatives and positives, but I will say that I am positive when it comes to particularly one of these drugs. We’ll see how it works. I am not saying it will but I think that people may be surprised. It is a game-changer. We’ll know very soon,” the president added.
Galonski has not currently followed through on her threat to report President Trump for war crimes because of his advocacy for hydroxychloroquine.
