Florida’s secretary of state resigns after blackface photos surface

Florida’s newly appointed secretary of state resigned on Thursday after photos emerged showing him cross-dressed and in blackface with a T-shirt reading ’Katrina Victim’ at a Halloween party 14 years ago. Michael Ertel was named secretary of state by Governor Ron DeSantis, who was elected governor in November.

Oh no, I inaccurately represented the black race with mine, so I must resign! This just petty. People need to toughen their skin, by using insults.

I think Florida has some special type of people. I’m constantly seeing weird news stories of people from that state.

How could anyone think that is costume material?! I'd say that is pretty indicative of what he truly is. At a minimum making fun of disaster victims. Then add the makeup to it.... The dude's a moron. (Gee, I wonder if he had a World Trade Center costume too ☹️)
