NEW EDITORIALS: Scott Should Answer For Being “Florida’s Jim Crow Governor”

As Scott holds events with veterans his record shows he’s only looking out for himself


As Rick Scott campaigns in Tampa today ahead of his expected Senate run, new editorials highlights how Rick Scott has managed to “Out-Jim Crow the Entire South” and how he “cavalierly ignored” a judge to deny people their rights with a “fatally flawed system.” The editorials are the latest examples showing how Scott is prioritizing his self-serving politics at Floridians’ expense and why he can’t be trusted to look out for anyone but himself:


On Friday, the Florida Democratic Party launched the Self-Serving Scott campaign with a press conference call discussing how each of these events demonstrate Scott “will not accept blame” for his failed record and is only ever looking out for his own political interests.


And since Scott appeared with Veterans today, here’s a quick reminder about his record on this critical issue:



Florida Democratic Party spokesman Sebastian Kitchen issued the following statement in response to Rick Scott’s campaign appearance in Tampa:


“As both governor and a candidate for U.S. Senate, Rick Scott needs to stop dodging responsibility and starting answering for his actions including those that disenfranchised more than one million voters. The people of Florida deserve answers and deserve better than a self-serving politician who will say and do anything to get elected.”
