Dean Cannon on returning money for redistricting lawsuit



Progress Florida and its allies are launching a petition urging House Speaker Dean Cannon to scrub his lawsuit challenging the Fair Districts redistricting system approved by voters in 2010. They got Cannon on video dismissing the suggestion:

Progress Florida: "Now is the time for legislators to carry out the will of the people by completing the redistricting maps as required by the Florida Constitution. Dean Cannon and his extremist allies in the Legislature must not be allowed to squander one more penny of taxpayer money battling their constituents in an effort to run roughshod over democracy in Florida."
