In a televised debate between Governor’s Rick Scott (R) and Governor Charlie Crist (D) the subject of the appropriate use of the death penalty came up. When Scott was accosted with evidence of misusing his authority of Governor in signing off on death sentences in order to advance political causes he refused to answer.
Crist stated that Scott had delayed death sentences in order to help another member of his administration raise money for a political campaign. Scott refused to answer the question directly.
Said Crist “Did the attorney general ask you to delay the execution so she could go forward with a political fundraiser?”
The only response that Scott had was
She apologized. She apologized. What would you like me to do? She apologized.
