Oh, I don’t know, I’d think with a once-in-a-generation environmental crisis looming off the coast of Florida, not to mention a $2.7 million judgment hanging over my head, the last place a future Speaker of the Florida House would want to be seen is the Kentucky Derby.
I’m just going to assume that the Republican Party of Florida did not pay for his ticket to Louisville.
Listen, I know what it’s like to have financial troubles. And I know how fun the Kentucky Derby is. But even I know well enough that when you are in the hole, the last place you go is the track.
Dorworth’s trip to Kentucky also brings into question his statement that “he’s not a gallivanter”:
“If I sit around and do absolutely nothing, then people say, ‘Hey man, this guy’s got a lot of stuff going on and he’s not doing anything.’ But if I go out, then you say, ‘You’re gallivanting around the state.’ I clearly don’t gallivant. If you’ve ever seen me before, I’m not a gallivanter.”
Um, dude, you need to lay off the ponies.
