Porn-Obsessed Spano Unworthy Successor to Dennis Ross


Dennis Ross

 

By Jim Bleyer

The district that sent Dennis Ross to Congress certainly deserves better than Ross Spano who was known as “The Invisible Man” in the Florida House of Representatives.

Dennis Ross, who is retiring after four terms, served CD15 with distinction, supporting Central Florida’s citrus and agriculture industries and pushing for lower flood insurance rates. He insisted the Farm Bill include dedicated citrus research funding, even stating he would not vote for the entire Farm Bill if it did not contain this provision.

Kristen Carlson, Spano’s opponent, like Ross, was a staunch ally in defending and assisting Polk County’s important citrus industry.

As General Counsel for the Florida Department of Citrus, Carlson has a long list of accomplishments: successfully lobbying the FDA to prosecute out-of-state “orange juice adulterators” who were mislabeling inferior juice and prosecuting predators who targeted women, children, and seniors.

While Ross and Carlson fought for the citrus industry,  Spano (the other Ross) was obsessed with pornography as a Florida House member.  He is known only for being the sponsor of a resolution declaring pornography a “public health risk.”

After Spano first submitted his pornography bill in 2017, Orlando Weekly discovered just two days after the filing that Spano’s Twitter account “favorited” a tweet from the “Goddess Lesbian” account, which features a video clip from adult entertainment company Reality Kings.

Spano’s response: “this is not my doing.” He has not favorited a Tweet since.  In fact, Spano’s Twitter account has been cleansed of any references to pornography or any sexual activity or innuendo.

Reality Kings describes itself online as the “world’s best real porn site” featuring “hot, curvy girls.”  Google “Reality Kings” and you will find more graphic descriptions that defy polite company.

Spano’s ads don’t tout his accomplishments because they don’t exist.  His campaign commercials from out-of-state interests attempt to smear Carlson with inflammatory mischaracterizations.

Dennis Ross yearns for a worthy successor, someone with the credentials who will fight for the district and protect its economy. Kristen Carlson’s track record coincides with that expectation.
