Desperate GOP Gets Rick Scott's Mom to Make Another Campaign Video

Maybe Esther Scott was tickled by

New Times' Mother's Day letter

. Maybe she caught a glimpse of her son's dismal approval rating. Or maybe some GOP head honcho cried so hard that she took pity. For whatever reason, Rick Scott's mom is once again campaigning for her son, the Lex Luthor of Tallahassee.

This time, she's touting Scott's legislative "success" -- those budget cuts that teachers, police officers, unemployed people, and every other conscientious mortal in the state hated.

"Like always, he made me proud,"  she says. "Like I said, he's a good boy."

Only 29 percent of Florida voters agree with Mrs. Scott on this point, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll. Wonder when the Republican Party will stop pretending otherwise?
