New FL site, Politics After 5, tries to jump start on Kickstarter

From a press release:

ORLANDO, FL- A new Kickstarter campaign from former political operative Joe Culotta hopes to offer a new angle on your typical news show.

Called Politics After 5, it will have an informal format—no suits or ties allowed—and dive into more personal topics like sports, music and fashion, as well as the issues of the day.“My show will be a chance for politicians and insiders to connect with a broader audience” said Culotta. “Over the years, I’ve worked with some of the biggest names in politics and I love getting to know politicians and the little behind the scenes stories that characterize their personalities. It’s a side of politics the public rarely gets to see—and that’s what I want to change.”

Politics After 5 will also integrate viewer questions selected from social media. So if you’ve got a question you’re just dying to ask Senators Marco Rubio or Speaker Will Weatherford, you might get your chance soon. You can find more details and show your support for the show at

Joe Culotta is half political junkie, half socialite and exactly the person you’d want to watch having drinks with some of the top elected officials. His past includes work with the Republican Party of Florida, the College Republican National Committee and the Seminole County Supervisor of Elections office—but he promises to be non-partisan and play nicely with Democrats too.
