I believe Rick Scott to be one, merciless, indifferent, unfeeling and perhaps even demented dullard that has ever come down the pike and without a doubt, should not have anything to say WHATSOEVER over what we-the-people of Florida may have to live under, via laws enacted. thinkingblue .

A heated moment came when Crist accused Scott of delaying an execution so that his attorney general could attend a political fundraiser.
“She asked me to delay it because it didn’t work on the dates that she thought it was going to be on,” Scott said in response. “She apologized.”
In September 2013, Pam Bondi apologized for delaying the planned execution of Marshall Lee Gore, a notorious rapist and murderer, because it conflicted with a fundraiser.
Scott denied at the time that he knew the reason for the delay.
“Did you know it was for a political fundraiser?” Crist pressed.
“What would you like her to do?” Scott asked.
Crist went on to blast Scott for not answering questions.
