A lawsuit was filed against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis this week.
"Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has punched back at Disney’s lawsuit, with his team saying Disney is trying to 'undermine the will' of Florida voters and has 'no legal right to corporate welfare,'" reported Breitbart.
The Walt Disney Co. claims DeSantis is waging a "targeted campaign of government retaliation" in the ongoing fight over Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Law.
The Parental Rights in Education Law bill has been smeared by the mainstream news media as the "Don’t Say Gay" bill.
"After the California-based Disney publicly threatened to fight to repeal the Florida law, DeSantis stripped the company of its self-governing privileges in the Orlando area — a valuable corporate perk Disney has enjoyed for five decades," reported Breitbart.
A spokesman for DeSantis shared a statement after news of the lawsuit broke:
"We are unaware of any legal right that a company has to operate its own government or maintain special privileges not held by other businesses in the state,” DeSantis’ statement said. “This lawsuit is yet another unfortunate example of their hope to undermine the will of the Florida voters and operate outside the bounds of the law."
Another DeSantis spokesman said: "There’s no legal right to corporate welfare."
