National and state Democrats are going after Gov. Rick Scott today over his record on Hispanic outreach after his finance co-chairman, Mike Fernandez, quit.
A new website from the Florida Democratic Party, NoSePuedeRickScott.com, which will be updated throughout the year, features quotes and news clips that highlight Scott’s issues with Hispanics.
On the national level, the pro-Democratic research group American Bridge is releasing a brutal video alleging that Scott has encouraged discriminatory hiring practices in the past.
In the video, a former Solantic employee – Dr. David Yarian – is shown accusing Scott of discriminatory hiring practices when it came to Latinos. Yarian claimed Scott encouraged “mainstream” hires when faced with a Latino job candidate, and that Scott said “no” to hiring an otherwise qualified candidate based on his “slight accent.”
