Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has been accused of many things, including the claim that he was a grandma killer during the Wuhan virus pandemic because he ultimately decided to go in a different direction than the federal government on “slowing the spread.” He also, of course, has often been accused of “racism” because he opposes wokeism in any form including its implementation in public school lesson plans and state-funded higher ed institutions.

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The Florida High School Athletic Association is weighing the recommendation from an advisory committee, but no final decision has been made. DeSantis’ education commissioner is a member of the association’s board of directors and the commissioner also appoints three others, but the association is a private nonprofit organization, not a state agency under the purview of the governor’s office…
