About 5 minutes away. You can livestream it via The Florida channel
See ya in a couple of hours
UPDATE 3:10 PM
If seems all Democrats will vote for reinstatement. That is how it looks so far, Israel is blameless and was betrayed by only one single solitary deputy. I missed some interventions.
UPDATE 3:20 PM
Senator Taddeo (D – not Broward) flips against Israel. “We didn’t hear the parents to ban assault weapons or arm teachers.”
UPDATE 3:29 PM
Senator Rouson (D – not Broward) flips against Israel. Also the parents influence. My guess is the polls show people would get pissed if senator ignored the parents.
UPDATE 3:49 PM
Senator Thurston (D – Broward) He came close to say anybody voting against Israel had a quid pro quo with the Governor. He was told to tone it down before he ripped over his tongue. He could not help himsel and started to crap on people and got spanked by Galvano. Then basically said BSo did not make a mistake. He is the caricature of the cheap southern politician. His seat must be secure as hell or up for terming out. Obviously voting for Israel.
Did I miss the Republicans? Another Democrat on the floor.
UPDATE 4:07 PM
Senator Gibson (D – not Broward) talking about the Ft Lauderdale shooting. says nobody knew the gun was in the luggage of the shooter, not even TSA. I thought he did check out the gun at departure. She also said that if a cop is not properly geared, he should be asked to go after the sound of gunfire. BSO that did not go in were securing perimeter because they had no radio communication. Apparently executive removal has never been done before in Florida. People are just making shit as they want. She is for Israel.
Reductio at absurdum is the flavor of the day
UPDATE 4:10 PM
Finally a Republican. Senator Bean (R ) went full emotional. against Israel. Short and Sweet.
UPDATE 4:16 PM
Senator Pizzo (D – not Broward) not sure what he said. I think he will vote for Israel
UPDATE 4:28 PM
Senator Bradley (R) declares against Israel
Senator Torres (D – not Broward) former NY LEO (Not NYPD) is shocked, shocked I tell you that there is politics in the process. supports Israel just to piss off the Governor.
I am done…..I’ll just wait for the final vote
