About long FL lines to vote...Rick Scott keeps saying "we did the right thing". Proud of suppression

But the governor is sticking to his decision, repeatedly telling reporters that he “did the right thing” by cutting early voting. When confronted by a local station WKMG, Scott insisted that “the right thing happened” before simply walking away from the question:

REPORTER: Should you have extended early voting hours?
SCOTT: I’m very confident that the right thing happened. 4.4. million people voted.

Scott repeated the same statement almost verbatim to another station, WFTV:

SCOTT: The right thing happened. 4.4 million people came out and voted either absentee or early. On Election Day we had 20 times as many polling locations as we did early. So we did the right thing.

9. Dick sh*tt

He is a one termer. The dems will rip him apart in the next election. Moderates will turn on him. Crist would beat him into the dirt. Unfortunately the damage is done with the repuke legislature's redistricting of the state. He has done his job and he will be rewarded by the oligarchs.

11. no rick

you have a fucking mess. your state cannot count even count the votes you get correctly. Funny that Arizona cant either. I dont know why anyone would want a provisional ballot. Why is it that 48 states and pueto rico can easily count their votes but florida cannot? Is it because you have so many bigot redneck clansmen and clanswomen?
Other states have even more rednecks than you but your rednecks seem to be a much more virulent strain. Thats pure hate rick. Theres your problem, you have too many haters.

14. Rick Scott made people wait in line for hours on purpose, one more way to suppress the vote,

 

he is getting rewarded for it by his GOP corporate paymasters, he's a tool, a pimp for the right wingers.
Hopefully the people of Florida will make this jerk a one term "lawbreaker" who is "proud of suppression"? Rick, get over it, President Obama won this election, and you will lose big time in the next election.
