Sally WRITES: I’ve never before seen more than bits and pieces of this information.  The Republicans should be doing a better job of getting it out to the general public. 


Of course, 60 Minutes had a hit piece on DeSantis – the Governor of

Florida – but failed to disclose these facts. 

To anyone who criticizes him – I have a request of you – can you

please post your education and service to our country in a résumé so

we can compare and put your bullshit opinion in perspective.

[1] He is of Italian descent.

[2] His family moved to Orlando, Florida, before relocating to

Dunedin, Florida, when he was six years old.

[3] In 1991, he was a member of the Little League team from Dunedin 

National that made it to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

[4] After graduating from Dunedin High School in 1997, DeSantis

attended Yale University. He was captain of Yale’s varsity baseball

team and joined the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity.

[5] On the Yale baseball team, DeSantis was an outfielder; as a

senior in 2001, he had the team’s best batting average at .336.

[6] He graduated from Yale in 2001 with a B.A. magna cum laude in history.

[7] He then spent a year as a history teacher at the Darlington School.

[8] DeSantis then attended Harvard Law School, graduating in 2005 with a Juris Doctor cum laude.

[9] DeSantis received his Reserve Naval officer’s commission and

assignment to the Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG) in 2004 at the

U.S. Naval Reserve Center in Dallas, Texas, while still a student at Harvard Law School.

[10] He completed Naval Justice School in 2005.

[11] Later that year, he received orders to the JAG Trial Service

Office Command South East at Naval Station Mayport, Florida, as a prosecutor

[12] In 2006, he was promoted from lieutenant, junior grade to lieutenant.

He worked for the commander of Joint Task Force-Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO),

working directly with detainees at the Guantanamo Bay Joint Detention Facility.

[13] In 2007, DeSantis reported to the Naval Special Warfare Command

Group in Coronado, California, where he was assigned to SEAL Team One

and deployed to Iraq with the troop surge as the Legal Advisor to the

SEAL Commander, Special Operations Task Force-West in Fallujah.

[14] DeSantis returned to the U.S. in April 2008, at which time he was

reassigned to the Naval Region Southeast Legal Service.

[15] The U.S. Department of Justice appointed him to serve as an

Assistant U.S. Attorney at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Middle

District of Florida.

[16] DeSantis was assigned as a trial defense counsel until his

honorable discharge from active duty in February 2010.

[17] He concurrently accepted a reserve commission as a Lieutenant

Commander in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps of the US Navy Reserve.

[18] He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal, the Navy and Marine Corps

Commendation Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and

the Iraq Campaign Medal.

[19 He represented Florida’s 6th congressional district in the US

House of Representatives from 2013 to 2018.

Obviously, with these qualifications, he is NOT qualified to be a 

Democrat, or serve in a senior political position in our nation’s

capital when one considers and compares the credentials of Pelosi,

Schumer, Harris or Biden.

So…Anyone who criticizes him – I have a request of you – can you

please post your education and service to our country in a résumé so

we can compare and put your bullshit opinion in perspective.

60 minutes failed to report any of these facts in their False Report to AMERICA.
