Politics Daily #6 – Governor Rick Scott Vetoes Funds For Rape Crisis Centers During Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Check out the Huffpost article here

You don’t need to know much about politics to find this ironic and funny.  And pathetic.

I agree with the article that this isn’t an extension by Rick Scott as the latest stint in the GOP’s ‘War on Women’.  I think this is just Rick Scott not being politically savvy.  Who does this kind of stuff, on Sexual Assault Awareness Month?

It’s not like Florida Council Against Sexual Violence demanded 1.5 billion dollars; the requested amount of $1.5 million dollars is chump change to an overall state budget.  And, as Ms. Dritt says, that amount stretches quite thin when spread across 67 counties.
