Q: Is Governor Rick Scott a Grifter? A: Oh, hell yeah!

via: Huffington Post – Jason Linkins

‘Floridians Are Maybe Starting To Understand Their Governor Is A Grifter’


Despite his being best known as a cartoon villain fraudster who bilked Medicare and incurred a record-setting fine from authorities, Florida Governor Rick Scott outspent and outgunned his primary opponent Bill McCollum and then slipped past Democratic challenger Alex Sink in the 2010 GOP wave.

And now, after THREE MONTHS in OFFICE, he’s become the very face of buyer’s remorse.

A PPP poll of registered voters released today shows that in a hypothetical re-do of last year’s gubernatorial election, Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) would LOSE to Democrat Alex Sink by a nearly 20-POINT MARGIN, 56%-37%. Scott won a squeaker of an election last year, edging out Sink by about one point.


note: At this point in the article, Mr Linkin, is merely getting warmed up.

  1. He’s beyond a grifter, he’s evil. He’s doing exactly what he did with his insurance company. Cutting care for the most vulnerable, & needy; those living in group homes, people with Down Syndrome, and the mentally ill. He doesn’t get that government doesn’t get to run away from the consequences of “dumping” the most needy in a society like an insurance company does. He doesn’t get that ultimately this will actually cost the state ten-fold with police, and hospitalization costs, not to mention public image. Come take a vacation in Florida, where we dump our Down Syndrome citizens in the streets. Let them pull themselves up by their bootstraps! Anyway, he obviously doesn’t get it morally. Do you think he “really” did win the election?
