Charlie Crist and John Morgan launching this attack ad against Rick Scott over dog story

in Uncategorized by

Shortly after winning the GOP gubernatorial nomination in 2010, Rick Scott announced that his family had rescued a Labrador Retriever and gave it a name: Reagan. 

But when the Tampa Bay Times “asked last week what had happened to the dog, Scott’s current and former communications directors refused to answer… At one point an exasperated reporter asked Burgess if he had killed the dog, and Burgess denied ever killing a dog, but still wouldn’t say where Reagan was.”

Later a spokeswoman called to say Reagan had been returned about a year ago.

In response to this controversy, Charlie Crist and John Morgan are launching this attack ad against Scott.
