Attorney General Merrick Garland and Joe Biden were trying to turn red state polling stations into police headquarters.
There were 24 states that Garland ordered oversight for during the election.
All but a handful were red states.
DeSantis told them to pump the brakes on that idea.
When the order came out regarding the oversight, Brad McVay, general counsel to Florida's Department of State, immediately pushed back.
He sent a letter to the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department that the DOJ "seem[ed] to indicate" that the monitors being sent would be standing inside the polling stations.
McVay stated, "Section 102.031(3)(a) of the Florida Statutes lists the people who 'may enter any polling room or polling place.'
"Department of Justice personnel are not included on the list."
He further stated, "Even if they could qualify as 'law enforcement'… absent some evidence concerning the need for federal intrusion, or some federal statute that preempts Florida law, the presence of federal law enforcement inside polling places would be counterproductive and could potentially undermine confidence in the election."
After a scathing rebuke of the order, McVay informed the DOJ that it would be deploying its own monitors to ensure all rules were followed and everyone was given the proper access to vote.
All of a sudden, Ron DeSantis has become an old western sheriff kicking the corrupt government officials out of his town.
His legend grows!
