Democrats demand DeSantis return donations from jailed Ukrainians


 Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo called on Governor Ron DeSantis to return money raised at events hosted by Lev Parnas. Mr. Parnas served on two host committees for DeSantis’ campaign fundraisers in 2018 and is under investigation, along with Igor Fruman, for campaign finance charges.
“For now, only DeSantis and Parnas know how much money was raised into the DeSantis campaign by Parnas and his foreign investors. And for now, only DeSantis and Parnas know what influence was exchanged for the donations.
Lev Parnas, is a Ukrainian-American businessman and associate of Rudolph W. Giuliani, pleaded not guilty to breaking federal campaign finance charges on Wednesday.
“As more is uncovered about Parnas’ scheme to influence U.S. elections, Floridians deserve more answers about how deep DeSantis relationship goes with him. All money associated with fundraisers hosted by Parnas should be returned immediately.”
