Rick Scott Asks Floridians to Report Suspicious Activity; Guess Who the Florida Dems Reported
Yesterday, Gov. Rick Scott and law-enforcement leaders announced Florida's new statewide hotline to report suspicious activity to the cops called "If You See Something, Say Something."
Long story short, if someone does something shady, call 1-800-FLA-SAFE and the appropriate authorities will check it out.
A few hours after the announcement, the Florida Democratic Party decided to report some very suspicious behavior from a "tall, white, bald male with cowboy boots on deleting public records."
You may see where they're going with this:
Following today's recommendation by the Governor's Office, we would like to report a suspicious pattern of criminal activity by our neighbor in the Governor's mansion:
Thursday, August 11th - Said individual lied to Floridians about the state's credit rating.
Monday, August 16th - Florida Supreme Court ruled said individual violated the Florida Constitution by exceeding his authority.
Thursday, August 18th - Said individual lied to the Orlando Sentinel about the quality of state workers' healthcare.
Friday, August 19th - Said individual admits to deleting public record emails belonging to the citizens of the State of Florida.
Sunday, August 28th - Said individual admitted to knowing about public record destruction four months before acknowledging the law had been broken.
Please note: said individual has a long rap sheet. Prior to these infractions this person was known as the "Madoff of Medicare," having run a company that received the largest fraud fine in US history.
We appreciate your attention to this very serious matter.
Sounds suspicious as hell. Phone it in, boys.
