Since 2013, a non-accredited college employing two Miami-Dade state legislators (State Sen. Anitere Flores and Rep. Manny Diaz Jr.) as its top executives has collected $600,000 in state charter school funds for offering high school students virtually worthless two-year degrees.
This past Friday Rick Scott signed into law HB 655, the anti-Earned Sick Time, anti-middle class legislation that disproportionately impacts working women and tramples over the power of local government to decide what’s best for our communities. Then he jumped on a plane to France for yet another tax payer funded “work trip”. This is not the act of a governor who cares about Florida’s middle class. This is the act of a governor with the wrong priorities. And now it’s time we engage people across this state more than ever before.
The last month has been a whirlwind for us as we work to expose Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Rick Scott, and the Pink Slip Puppets up in Tallahassee. We’re publicizing their records so that we can let Floridians know who voted 100% with Pink Slip Rick!
Stand up for the middle class against Romney-Ryan-Scott!
This November, Rick Scott isn’t on the ballot. But that doesn’t mean we can’t take a look at Pink Slip Rick’s record and the legislators who voted for it.
We’re launching a new website ReferendumOnRick.com to help you do that. See the Pink Slip Puppets in the Florida legislature who have voted with Rick Scott. See their worst votes, what seat they’re running for in November, and the special interests who are funding their campaigns. You can put in your zip code and see who are the Pink Slip Puppets in your area.
Expose Rick Scott’s Pink Slip Puppets with ReferendumOnRick.com.
Pink Slip Mitt Romney chose his running mate yesterday. It’s Paul Ryan and he’s the wrong choice for America. He might even be worse than Rick Scott.
And it’s Rick Scott!
Just kidding. Not even Mitt Romney would do that.
But if Romney chooses Marco Rubio to be his Vice Presidential candidate, it might as well be Rick Scott. Marco Rubio is a traitor to the middle class and a job killer, just like Pink Slip Rick and Pink Slip Mitt.
Where is Connie Mack on the voter purge? He’s the scion of a prominent political family and an elected official who wants to represent all of Florida in the Senate. Where does he stand on the issue? With us or with Pink Slip Rick Scott?
Your letter requested that the media ask Connie Mack where he stood. As one resident of Jupiter put it, “As a voter, I have the right to know where Connie Mack stands on the voter purge going on in my state. Please demand an answer from him.”
Representative Connie Mack claims to be a leader; that’s why he’s running for Senate. But he’s nowhere to be found on Rick Scott’s voter purge. Leaders need to make important decisions and if Connie Mack wants to avoid the issue, reporters shouldn’t let him get away with it.
Tell the media to ask Connie Mack: where does he stand?
Pink Slip Rick is repeating Katherine Harris’ voter purge in 2000, which made the difference and allowed George Bush to win Florida. And in the same vein, Scott’s purge targets eligible minority voters.
One person purged by Pink Slip Rick is a World War II veteran who fought in Europe to preserve our freedom. He’s a Democrat born in New York. Others are refugees from Cuba who became naturalized citizens. Pink Slip Rick would prevent hundreds of U.S. citizens from voting.
These are voters who Connie Mack wants to represent. Does he think they should vote?
You’re turning up the pressure on the Pink Slip Puppets. Thanks to your calls, Congressman Connie Mack, State Rep. Scott Plakon and State Senator Ellyn Bogdanoff know we’re paying attention to where they stand on Pink Slip Rick’s voter purge.
One caller reported back after her call that an aide to Connie Mack told her “he has not come down on this issue yet but that she would pass my question along.” They’re getting the message that they have to oppose the voter purge.
But don’t stop now! Keep calling the Pink Slip Puppets and make sure they know we’re looking for them to oppose the voter purge!
Thanks to you, we’ve had quite a year! We’ve mobilized tens of thousands of Floridians against Pink Slip Rick’s job-killing agenda. In the winter, we awoke the state. In the summer, we turned the heat up with madlibs, donuts and robocalls. And, in the fall, we showed Florida just how scary Pink Slip Rick is.
Relive some of our greatest moments and make a contribution to help us continue the fight against Pink Slip Rick’s radical agenda in 2012.
