BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY / Criminals & Outlaws
Karyn Turk, the former Mrs. Florida sentenced to prison, opens up about the story behind the salacious headlines.

In the days of clickbait news, it’s hard to see the truth behind today’s biggest stories. Karyn Turk, Mrs. Florida 2016, was no stranger to headlines. She worked behind the scenes as an executive for CBS, then won the 2016 Mrs. Florida Pageant just as Donald J. Trump was running for president. She supported his campaign, all while wearing a sash and crown. She became a well-recognized crisis media manager for high-profile political cases that made headlines, and had no fear of controversy. Karyn’s desire to stand up for those she felt were being mistreated was no secret. She was an outspoken, loud, and proud conservative with a social media following and a big mouth. She was reaching a high point in her career.

Then cancel culture came for her.

The deep-state Florida swamp rose up, and the connected legal gators began to circle her. The headlines were as salacious as they could be: “Mrs. Florida stole pennies off her Mother’s eyes before she died,” “Fresh off a fundraiser for Roger Stone, Mrs. Florida pleads guilty to social security fraud.” The true story was of a daughter who tried to stand up against corruption and abuse—but it was a story that none of the newspapers or media outlets reported. Instead, a misdemeanor for a seventeen-thousand-dollar misappropriation of her mother’s social security pension was the charge, and a month-long jail sentence in a maximum-security prison the resulting consequence—a bizarre result for someone with no criminal record at all. Behind the Headlines reveals how Karyn’s career, family life, and credibility was called into question because of the impact cancel culture has on society.

The former Mrs. Florida, activist, outspoken journalist, and political personality, Karyn Turk is well known for her regular appearances as a television commentator. She made headlines in 2019 and 2020 when she was sentenced to thirty days in a maximum-security prison after taking a plea for misdemeanor social security fraud. The funds belonged to her mother, and Karyn was fighting back against the neglect of a nursing home after a guardianship took her mother and stripped her rights. The papers ignored the truth and used Karyn’s position as a Trump supporter and friend of Roger Stone to make her yet another causality of cancel culture. But Karyn fought back against the system that neglected her mother and the mainstream narrative that canceled her. They hoped she would be written off, but somehow, she emerged from the scandal stronger.

Karyn is quickly becoming a force for change in the perception of conservative women; at the same time, she’s shedding light on the broken guardianship system in America. While she may be a fixture at Mar-a-Lago, Karyn isn’t your typical socialite. She is very open about her history as a first-generation American whose parents fled the Nazi occupation in Austria. An adopted child with a beautiful backstory, she has worked tirelessly with organizations raising awareness for Alzheimer’s, special needs, and women’s issues. She is a lover of Israel, animals, and above all, family. Her main passion is free speech and inspiring others to stand up for what they believe in.
