    a known criminal when he was elected?

    Didn't he run one of the biggest medicare scams in this country's history?

    How did he get elected?

      The Democratic candidate wasn't ideal and didn't run a very good campaign. And the majority of voters believed the BS Scott was doling out because the Democratic candidate didn't do a good job of refuting it.

      AND Scott was elected in 2010 based on anti-Democratic backlash.

      AND there are plenty of right-wingers in FL who wouldn't vote for a Democrat no matter who they were or what their own candidate had been convicted of. For all I know, some of them saw it as a plus on Scott's part.
