Gov. Scott of Florida has heard enough from Jesse Jackson. Demands apology.
Gov. Rick Scott has had enough. He called on the Rev. Jesse Jackson to apologize to Floridians for describing The Sunshine State as “the Selma of our time” during Jackson’s Tuesday visit with the Dream Defenders protesting at the state Capitol.
“Jesse Jackson owes every Floridian an apology for his reckless and divisive comments,” Scott said in a statement. “It is unfortunate that he would come to Florida to insult Floridians and divide our state at a time when we are striving for unity and healing. Floridians are a strong, resilient people. We are fortunate to live in a great state where all Floridians enjoy opportunities to get a great job and a world-class education.”
