Gov. Ricky got an earful from black legislators, voters, and political commentators about Florida’s restrictive voting law that resulted in endlessly long lines and cutting back early-voting days. Or as I like to call it, voter suppression.
His response to the criticism: Moi?
Scott agreed with black lawmakers that the 2011 election law contributed to the chaos at the polls in November, including long lines all over the state and up to seven-hour waits in Miami-Dade. But Scott, who is seeking re-election in 2014, said it was largely a decision of the Legislature.
“It was not my bill,” Scott said. “We’ve got to make changes, I agree. … The Legislature passed it. I didn’t have anything to do with passing it.”
Hey, guys, back off! I had nothing to do with that piece of crap bill! It was all their fault! I only signed the thing!
