Dear Rick Scott and Pam Bondi,
Florida Gramps here fired dozens of bullets into the home of a woman who refused his advances. Luckily, she wasn’t home at the time; hopefully, she was banging someone else.
In an insanely petty use of resources, Florida Governor Rick Scott’s PAC has released an ad attacking the lady who yelled at him in a Starbucks. The woman, Cara Jennings, isn’t a current elected official or a public figure. She was just pissed at Rick Scott and he was right there.
