QUICK CLIP: Rick Scott Under Fire for Alleged Voter Suppression

May 23, 2018

Today Floridians woke up to reports of a lawsuit pending against GOP Senate candidate Governor Rick Scott for alleged voter suppression.

In 2013, Governor Scott refused to allow early voting on state college campuses — claiming campuses didn’t meet the definition of “government-owned community centers.” Now he’s being taken to court for making it “difficult and in some cases impossible” for young people to vote this fall.

“Voter suppression is a cynical tactic used by politicians worried about their electoral chances. Unfortunately for Rick Scott, it’s also illegal,” said American Bridge spokesperson Amelia Penniman.
