Florida Woman: “I can’t believe Rick Scott is scared of a bunch of little old ladies in tennis shoes,” “we’re here because we love our beaches.”
Rick Scott made headlines over the weekend for all the wrong reasons – inviting voters to a campaign stop and then running away from them when he was confronted about his controversial beach access law and self-serving politics. This is not the not the first time Scott skipped out on meeting with constituents. Last month, his office invented a “security concern” to avoid the public. It’s classic Scott: looking out for himself at Floridians’ expense, and these reports add to the over370 bad stories Scott’s suffered in the first 150 days of his campaign.
