Why Did Floridians Put A Crook Like Rick Scott in the Governor's Mansion? | Crooks and Liars
A great question! It's well known that Rick Scott stole massive amounts of taxpayer money in his private life. This is what you get when you have corporations and lobbyists funding a fake "grassroots" movement. How else could liars and cheats like the Koch brothers convince uninformed folks to go out and do the bidding of corporations?

The Tea Party has been attacking this for months. Even thought the people of the state voted yes on it this past fall. So that's how democracy works in the Tea Party? The people vote yes and then a small group of uninformed Tea Partiers undo that vote. Not to mention that puppy mills are cruel.
