This is the one story Rick Scott doesn’t want Florida voters to know about: report

Published

on

A Florida resident is suing the state after claiming that Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) consistently ignored her sexual assault case, reported Politico.

Lucille Alford, 61, works as a medical disability examiner. Alford claims that her boss sexually assaulted her.

“I tried to get the governor’s attention,” Alford said. “I felt like I was out there on a limb by myself and people were not really hearing me. I’m still traumatized.”

Alford said, “When a person [says they’ve] been battered or assaulted or traumatized by another person, that’s a statement of a crime. I thought I would be taken seriously.”

At the time of the assault in 2014, she reported the incident to the governor’s office, the Florida Commission on Human Relations, and to local police.

Scott’s spokeswoman Mara Gambineri released a statement on Thursday saying, “Governor Scott takes allegations of sexual assault and harassment very seriously. He has zero tolerance for any sort of behavior like this.”

This was in light of my previous criticisms of Biden's apparent condescension towards girls and women, and his pockmarked history on gender relations in general.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) blasted Joe Biden for praising two segregationist senators he'd served with as a lawmaker.

The former vice president and current Democratic presidential frontrunner reminisced about his relationship with Mississippi Democrat James Eastland and Georgia Democrat Herman Talmadge, two notoriously racist senators during the Civil Rights era, reported The Hill.

“At least there was some civility, we got things done," Biden said, recalling that Eastland had never called him "boy." "We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done, we got it finished."

Most Republican voters admit to feeling ‘embarrassed’ and ‘exhausted’ by Trump’s comments

Published

on

Some diehard supporters of President Donald Trump have asserted that they admire the fact that he is so unapologetic about his rhetoric and his actions. But according to a new Pew Research survey, most Republican or Republican-leaning voters admit that they sometimes feel “embarrassed” or “concerned” about things that Trump says.

According to Pew, 53% of Republican or Republican-leaning voters say they sometimes feel “embarrassed” by Trump’s comments — while 59% are sometimes “concerned” by them. Some of the adjectives Pew ran by GOP or GOP-leaning voters were even stronger, including “angry,” “exhausted” and “frightened.”
