BREAKING: Ron DeSantis Offers New Jobs To Those Fired From Campaign



As you may have heard, Ron DeSantis recently terminated one-third of his campaign staff.

Due to federal law restrictions, former campaign staffers are not allowed to join a political action committee for a minimum of 120 days after leaving a campaign. To provide an alternative option, DeSantis offered tax-payer-funded jobs to some of these former staffers.

According to Axios, James Uthmeier, DeSantis’ official chief of staff in the governor’s office, reached out to former campaign staffers and encouraged them to apply for positions in his office.
