It will not help his election! DeSantis was caught on canvas shouting ‘F**k you, eat my b**ls’ while handing out flyers in Charleston, as the Florida governor is trailing Trump.
A canvasser from the ‘Never Back Down PAC’ campaigning for DeSantis on camera claims he’ll say ‘f**k you, eat my b**ls’ if asked to get off the lawn DeSantis continues to trail former President Donald Trump in polls
Ron DeSantis, a member of the political action committee, was caught using profanity and admitting to being high on marijuana, as he continues to trail former President Donald Trump in the Florida gubernatorial polls.
Video posted Friday afternoon shows a canvasser from the Never Back Down PAC in Charleston attempting to hand out fliers for DeSantis.
He overheard an unknown caller audibly suggesting over the phone that if the homeowner hypothetically told him ‘You, get off my property,’ then ‘I’d be like, ‘You, eat my food*’ *True. Eat my big, hairy s**k.’
As the video clip ends, he admits ‘I’m a little stoned now, so I don’t care’.
Human Events reported Friday that Canvasser no longer works for the Never Back Down PAC.
A member of the Ron DeSantis Political Action Committee was caught using profanity and admitting to smoking marijuana.
Kate Roberts, National Field Director of Never Back Down, told The Washington Post, ‘After learning of the incident, we investigated and fired the individual.’
‘Our field programs are having thousands of incredible conversations across the country every day. This person’s behavior is contrary to the values taught in our training and is not tolerated.’
Never Back Down differs from many campaigns in that they are hiring people to campaign for DeSantis instead of using volunteers.
The employees — responding to ads promising to pay $20 to $22 an hour for their work — are given an eight-day training session in Iowa before being sent out into the field.
The PAC defended the strategy, saying its 350 to 400 canvassers knocked on about 700,000 doors and received more than 7,000 people pledge cards to caucus for DeSantis in the state of Iowa.
‘By the end of the month our canvassers will have knocked on more than 1 million doors,’ Davison said in a statement.
‘These canvassers have thousands of conversations each day, identifying supporters who we will later mobilize, as well as untargeted voters who receive specific follow-ups based on conversations at the door.’
Never Back Down does not work directly with the DeSantis campaign and is able to take unlimited donations.

Whether the strategy will pay off, with the GOP Iowa caucus set for just six months on Jan. 15, remains in question.
DeSantis still trails former President Trump in Republican primary polling.
Trump remains strong at 49.7 percent in the 538 national polls.
DeSantis is clearly second to former Vice President Mike Pence, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott.
However, in polling averages, he is well within striking distance of Trump with just 21 percent.

Some pundits claim DeSantis has been unable to separate himself from former President Donald Trump (pictured last month).
Polls taken since early July show Trump leading DeSantis by anywhere between 26 and 41 points.
A conservative-leaning American Greatness poll taken 10 days ago showed a slightly narrower margin in Iowa, with Trump leading the all-important caucus 44 to 21.
The most recent poll in South Carolina, where Canvaser’s video comes from, shows Trump leading DeSantis 41 to 18 in a June 20-21 poll.
