DeSantis Opponent Nikki Fried Takes Attention-Seeking to Absurd and Adult-Rated Heights – Opinion

Gov. As the likely Republican red wave nears, Ron DeSantis appears to be cruising to Florida re-election. Two candidates are vying for his replacement on the Democrat side. One is infamous political chameleon Charlie Crist, once a “Republican” himself, and the other is current AG Commissioner Nikki Fried.

And while Crist’s momentum-less campaign appears to be poised to win him the position of sacrificial lamb, current runner-up Fried continues to have a larger social media presence — and, as you’ll see, it’s always good for a laugh.

It was Friday evening when something very strange took place. Fried took to Twitter to let her 282K followers know that…she does not have a sex tape?

Perhaps you are wondering who accused Nikki Fried if she had a tape of sex. Is the rumor being spread by a right-leaning media outlet based on anonymous sources and innuendo? The claim was made virally by major social media accounts. Was it one of her political adversaries?

Answer to these questions is no. In fact, I can’t find any example of anyone accusing Fried of having a sex tape. I have seen someone mention that a small, random account made a joke about it in her replies, but I can’t confirm that myself, which tells you how obscure the joke was–if it was actually made. Fried was not accused of having a bad video. In fact, it was just a joke.

To recap, Fried took to Twitter to denounce a rumor that she had a sex tape…that she started. I’ve got to admit, this is a new one for me as a political observer, and truly, it’s taking attention-seeking to absurd levels. She was clearly out of ideas after she lost by two-digits to her primary opposition.

This situation was hilarious and everyone laughed.

So what was Fried’s plan here? I’m speculating, but I think she was trying to connect it to DeSantis and claim that he started the rumor as a gross sexist. Laughably, though, she made the mistake of forgetting to let the rumor build momentum before denouncing it–so in the end, it just didn’t work.

To state the obvious, if DeSantis’ opposition in November is this woman or Charlie Crist, he’s absolutely golden.
