Dems want to ignore the sleaze (that happens to be about immigration) so the media shifts more focus back to abortion (or, I guess, property insurance in Florida). In fact, media will still cover the DeSantis thing, only with his propaganda unrebutted.

Wait, did the doctor blow a coverup???

Hilarious that this all started because Paul Ryan refused to hold a vote on the unanimously passed Senate CR while he was still Speaker, then gave up the gavel and skipped town, leaving everyone else behind to clean up his mess. What a wonk, what a boy scout.
