Questions Rick Scott Should (But Probably Won't) Answer in Boca Raton

Posted

Today, as Rick Scott brings his roadshow of empty promises to Boca Raton, the governor will offer more reelection rhetoric to mislead voters. Unfortunately for Scott, voters have heard him make promises before — and they’ve seen the results.

3) A judge has issued a statewide ruling striking down Florida’s ban on marriage equality. You’ve said you don’t support discrimination. How long will your administration continue to stand in the way of equality by appealing these decisions? 

4) You’ve stated multiple times that your administration did not use private emails to conduct state business despite this being demonstrably false. Why do you continue to lie to Floridians? Why do you go to such great lengths to hide from the sunshine laws?
