With her former IT aide Imran Awani and his wife now facing a 4-county indictment on conspiracy and making false statements, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz continues to have her name dragged through the political mud, as new calls for the congresswoman to answer for her actions.
Moments before delivering the invocation at the annual Palm Beach GOP’s Lobsterfest event, Rep. Ron DeSantis (D) stated that Wasserman Schultz needed to be “held accountable for her conduct.”
“They just indicted he main IT guy and his wife for conspiracy to commit offenses against the United States. They need to be brought to justice, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz should be .”-Rep. Ron DeSantis
Wasserman Schultz defiantly denounced and dismissed the inquiry into her aide as a media witch hunt by “right-wing media circus fringe” news outlets, and defended her action of keeping her aide on the payroll, even after finding out that he was under federal investigation.
There is now chatter that Democrats are looking to push Wasserman Schultz out of office, possibly supporting a more moderate, less-divisive appearing candidate like Broward County Mayor Marty Kiar.
DeSantis is positioning himself for a gubernatorial run for office in Florida.
