Tallahassee—Senator Frank Artiles ended his career in the state legislature by resigning, following a curse-filled, racist diatribe disparaging Senator Audrey Gibson of Jacksonville. Artiles was outraged because Gibson not only spoke against his bill she voted against it. While at the capital’s prestigious Governors Club, Artiles cursed and demeaned Gibson and his senate colleagues. He went on to call White senators “niggas“ and used the “p” word to describe Senate President Joe Negron.
MIAMI, FL – Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson (FL-24) today released the following statement on Florida State Senator Frank Artiles: “First of all, it was a huge loss to the democratic party to lose such a statesman as State Senator Dwight Bullard,” said Congresswoman Wilson. “The revelation that we lost him to State Senator Frank Artiles, a racist man who lacks respect for people of color and who has no regard for the feelings of his constituents, makes this scenario more egregious.”

Bill Standardizing Vote-by-Mail Passes After FDP Lawsuit Combatting Voter Disenfranchisement. Tallahassee, FL — Today, the Florida House of Representatives passed Democratic Leader Janet Cruz’s House Bill 105 which will solve serious voter disenfranchisement issues throughout the state. The bill creates a uniform standard for curing vote by mail ballots by offering the voter a chance to fix a ballot that was rejected due to a mismatched signature. This common sense solution to our voting system comes after the Florida Democratic Party won a lawsuit against Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner.
