Darryl Rouson is the former incoming House Democratic Leader and largest non-voluntary donor to the Florida Democratic Party. After giving up a large salary at Morgan & Morgan and taking on the daunting responsibility of leading the House Democrats, he was unceremoniously ousted for doing his job.
After raising a significant amount of money to support the goal of electing Democrats to the Florida House, Rouson was relieved of that money and his leadership position in one fell swoop. The Florida Democratic Party, apparently uncomfortable with a superior fundraiser in the fold, opted for the liberal South Florida legislator Mark Pafford instead.
