Scott Says He 'Didn't Serve To Defend Neo-Nazis'

Aug 17, 2017

Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi, both strong supporters of President Donald Trump, decried racism and groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis as reverberations continued Wednesday across the country after a deadly weekend in Charlottesville, Va.

Calling it “huge step in the right direction,” Gov. Rick Scott got support from two state Cabinet members Wednesday to keep an agency they oversee from conducting future business linked to the Maduro regime in Venezuela.

While not as wide-reaching as first proposed by the governor, the resolution approved by the State Board of Administration's trustees --- Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi and Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis --- will prohibit the board from investing in certain companies that have financial ties to the Venezuelan regime.

Governor Scott has responded to the League of Women Voters’ petition to bar him from appointing three new Supreme Court justices in 2019.   

Gov. Rick Scott is cautioning university presidents over how they spend money that legislators gave them.

In Jacksonville Wednesday, Florida Governor Rick Scott said Congress should “do their job” and repeal the Affordable Care Act. But he said lawmakers must first craft something to replace it.
