Caught Lying: Email From Rick Scott Finance Chair Confirms Senior Staffers Made Anti-Hispanic Jokes

Posted

News reports today prove that Rick Scott’s campaign team has lied for four days about anti-Hispanic jokes made by members of the senior campaign staff. 

“When will Rick Scott and his campaign team finally stop misleading the public and take responsibility?” said Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant. “Rick Scott’s lieutenant governor said these disparaging remarks never happened and so did his campaign manager — now we know that they both lied.

"This is page one in the Rick Scott playbook: deny any responsibility — even deny that the misdeed ever took place — and hope the public never learns the truth. Fortunately for the people of Florida, campaign Finance Chair Fernandez’s emails tell the real story.”
