Jon Stewart delighted in poking fun at Florida Governor Rick Scott’s controversial voter purging campaign Tuesday evening, calling him a “Mr. Clean impersonator” and the former lead singer of the Australian rock group Midnight Oil.

Scott’s voter purge was meant to take non-citizens off the voting roll, but revealed that many eligible Democratic and minority voters were the most targeted. “People who live in fear of deportation, yet insist on voting,” Stewart said. “There must be ten of those.”
