It was more like an end run around federal law. Makes me wonder, what was in it for DeSantis to risk such an obvious maneuver?

Since DeSantis is a Trump Republican, one's mind always turns to money and the influence money can buy.

Kickbacks?
Campaign contributions for DeSantis' national campaign
Political payback for favors?
Anonymous contributions to PACs for Republican state legislators?

Contrary to what some people think about Indians living in poverty, the Seminole's casinos and plush convention centers and hotels have made them very wealthy.

I'm surprised that Trump himself doesn't have a thumb in that pie. But maybe I speak too soon.
