Sarah Brady is now committing acts of terrorism, since she
clearly is trying to extort political concessions from Florida
politicians in return for leaving them alone and not hurting their

tactic that is below such liars as her and her group of
self-proclaimed (and MEDIA-proclaimed) "do-gooders", I don't know what
it might be.

There's a whole slew of laws that are being broken by them
doing that, but I'm sure they've made deals with higher-ups who want
the same things they do.
