You probably already know Florida attorney Daniel Uhlfelder from his “Grim Reaper” beach theatrics during the coronavirus pandemic that was designed in part as an effort to make Gov. Ron DeSantis look like a killer. Predictably, the “Grim Reaper” runs a PAC and has helped raise money for the Democrats. He also had a take on Rep.

But how many of the people on Florida beaches have died because they didn't listen to the guy in the Grim Reaper costume???

I notice he hired a defense attorney to represent him in his ethics complaint.

@DWUhlfelderLaw should put this tweet on a billboard.
Good advertising. https://t.co/q4DYRX1fp3

Maybe the billboard should say “because you don’t hire a lawyer unless you know you’re guilty!”
