But back home in her conservative Florida county, Luna is waging a very different kind of war: a legal battle with political enemies who say she’s a literal witch.

A letter obtained by The Daily Beast reveals that the Florida Republican Party has hired high-powered law firm Holland & Knight to pursue a potential rival who has made a series of outlandish allegations against Luna on the Internet. radio show Bubba the Love Sponge in the fall .
