Here’s a History of Rick Scott’s Attacks on Basic Democracy and Voting Rights
Marco Rubio was one of 11 Republicans to vote to keep sanctions on Putin’s ally, but Rick Scott sided with Russia.
Scott told them, “Oh, by the way, I’m going to have a party with 48 people at the mansion on Monday.”
Scott’s donors will pay at least $25,000 for a photo opportunity with Florida’s new U.S. senator.
Sources with ties to Scott say that he is looking at different options that would allow him finish his full second term as Florida’s 45th governor.
Scott, despite his self-assurance, has not technically won the U.S. Senate seat yet. He may be the first candidate to ever attend an orientation as a senator-elect before actually being the senator-elect.
Scott repeated his allegations Sunday, without evidence, that fraud is behind the increase in votes for Nelson, saying he has asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to look into potential fraud. The department and the secretary of state have both previously said there is no evidence of fraud.
Scott’s Senate campaign is suing the Broward County elections supervisor and is ordering the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate elections offices in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
