ICYMI: Florida is overflowing with poop, the Twitter account of a porn-hating lawmaker 'liked' a porn clip and more 

Twitter account of Florida lawmaker who's trying to declare porn a public health crisis 'liked' a porn clip:

After filing a bill decrying the evils of pornography and its effect on women and children, state Rep. Ross Spano, R-Dover, played himself after his Twitter account "favorited" a pornographic tweet last January. Looking back through Spano's Twitter "likes," Orlando Weekly spotted FSU football clips, Bible verses ... and a hard-core, 17-second Reality Kings video clip of two women doing the dirty from the "Goddess Lesbian" Twitter account. In a statement, Spano said, "Obviously, I have a long social media history on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram since I was first elected in 2012. With a thorough examination of my accounts, it will be easy to see that this is not my doing. I have since gone back, once notified, and rectified the problem. And I'm now looking into how it occurred in the first place." Honestly, the problem here isn't that Spano may have looked at smut – it's the hypocrisy of blaming porn for human trafficking, exploitation of children, sex slavery and domestic violence and in the same breath being literally out of breath by online erotica.

Hurricane Irma leaves 10,000 people homeless in the Florida Keys:

Now back to stuff that matters. Hurricane Irma's destructive path decimated the Florida Keys and left an estimated 10,000 people homeless, Gov. Rick Scott says. The Miami Herald reports Scott made the estimate using data from people that have signed up for FEMA assistance. Officials have told residents returning to the islands that they will have to be "self-sustaining" because of limited access to power, supplies, sewer service and water.

Tenth patient dies from Florida nursing home that lost power after Irma:

A 10th resident from the stifling Hollywood nursing home that was evacuated last week has died. Martha Murray, 94, is the latest fatality associated with the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, which lost air conditioning after the hurricane knocked out power. Law enforcement officials are investigating the deaths. The governor's administration has suspended the facility's license after blocking admissions and removing them from the Medicaid program. The Rehabilitation Center has sued, challenging the admissions moratorium and Medicaid cutoff.  

Florida still overflowing with poop weeks after Irma:

Thanks to Irma beating down on our water infrastructure, the Department of Environmental Protections has seen hundreds of reports of gallons upon gallons of raw sewage flowing into streets and waterways across the state. Local Orange County officials even asked residents to reduce their water consumption to reduce the impact on the wastewater system. By last week, nearly 800 wastewater pump stations had been restored, so give yourself a well-deserved hurricane-recovery bubble bath.
