Rick Scott's Office Asks the Media to Engage in Photo Censorship -- No Thanks

Gov. Rick Scott's office emailed members of the media yesterday, asking that we all use one specific picture of the governor.

"Please forward the attached photo of Governor Rick Scott to the appropriate people in your organization who handle graphics, layout and design," the email says. "Please use this photo of Governor Scott, rather than any others you may have on file."

We're not sure if the governor came up with this idea after a conference call with Kim Jong-il, but that won't be happening here.

You can see the photo they would like us to use after the jump:
