        I am just reporting it ........it is making it's way across
        the state and Facebook.  I do not know this gentleman but I sure admire his gumption regardless ....yes I have passion but I DO know you have to go through the State legislature unless the DOJ filed charges on him.

        I cannot take credit or excuse for what I did not do.
        I just reported this ...I didn't do this.  No I did not build this.

          and you've written some very important diaries, but this story is not even worth reporting. at best, it's a distraction.

            petition no matter how badly written is saying something to the rest of the states and the world.

            This state went for Obama with blisters on folks heels to prove it.  The rest of the US needs to know there are residents down here who WANT to be rid of the nonsense under Scott and his cohorts.
            It can get people who know how to take on Scott and make wrong  into right.   All of the abuses this man has done to Florida and getting worse by the day is not a minor distraction.  It is ongoing !  I reported where one man rose to an occasion to DO something ..Rigt protocal or not.. He did something.

            A distraction from what?  A socialite in Tampa ?

              that we don't understand the process. everyone who pays attention knows that scott's approval ratings are in the toilet, but getting excited over this is not going to help, and driving traffic to change.org just when they've sold out also isn't going to help.

              if this petition was delivered to the office of a senator, it wouldn't get past junior staffers. they'd roll their eyes.

                more than likely but many on here did offer good advice and everyday down here we feel like we are stuck with a dictator and then when he pulls another stunt...people think all of us are stupid for putting up with him when we
                have no recourse.  

                I did not know the workings of change,org and selling out and pretty sure the fellow who stepped up to the plate didn't know either but what this post says and others will read..is ..maybe there IS nothing they can do.
                They voted Obama but have Scott.  They voted out West
                but have Scott.  People need to get excited, as maybe it will motivate them to approach their legislators with demands.   No matter what it takes to rile them up or feel empowered.   They need to feel empowered and not trapped.  

                It is worse than has been reported.  You are seeing just a little of what Scott is doing.  No not everyone know his numbers are in the toilet.   At least now when he appears on television news locally he stumbles all over himself and not so cocky.
