News Anchor Slams Florida Gov. Rick Scott for 'Appalling' Refusal To Take Responsibility For Preventing Same-Sex Marriages: VIDEO
ABC News Anchor Micahel Putney recently slammed Florida Governor Rick Scott for his refusal to own up to the fact that same-sex marriage is illegal in Florida in no small part because of his actions. While the state's ban on same-sex marriage has been fought in the courts, Attorney General Pam Bondi has continued to defend it. Scott meanwhile has claimed, 'he doesn't have a thing to do with it', a claim Putney is quick to refute:
"That is just nonsense. Governor Scott is the top elected official in the state. If he didn't want Attorney General Bondi to file those appeals he can simply call her up and say, "hey stop it." Or he can order her to stop it. That's what Governor Scott Walker did in Wisconsin, what the governor of Virginia did, they did it in Arizona...The fact that Gov. Scott refuses to take responsibility [for preventing same-sex marriage] is appalling. But it's not the first time."
