Shame on You, Rick Scott

Most politicians are opportunists, but Florida Governor Rick Scott took it to a new low.  In the aftermath of the horrific slaughter in Parkland, Florida, we learned that FBI procedures failed, and the information provided by concerned citizens did not make it to the Miami Field Office for action.  The FBI certainly needs to review what happened and fix it to prevent any future such failure.  No question.  However, Governor Scott immediately called for FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign, in a not so veiled and clearly political stunt.  Rick Scott is planning to challenge Senator Bill Nelson this year ...
