Kevin Cate pretty much loses his sh*t in advance of Rick Scott’s latest press conference

in Uncategorized by

Charlie Crist campaign communications consultant Kevin Cate, normally so smooth and restrained, is mad as hell and can’t take it anymore after reading the latest press advisory from Governor Rick Scott’s office.

The Governor’s office sent a release Monday afternoon advising that Scott “will listen to Florida seniors about the impact of Medicare Advantage cuts” tomorrow at The Volen Center in Boca Raton.

For Cate, this was too much.

In an email to the Capital Press Corps, Cate writes, “I don’t even know what to say — it’s like this guy is immune to facts.”

Continued Cate, “How is it possible that he is spending the last week of session deceiving seniors with a known lie about a federal issue instead of working on in-state tuition, medicaid expansion, school funding, etc.???”

In case there was any doubt about how upset Cate was with Scott’s lying, Cate bottom-lined the issue to reporters.

“I’ve known most of you all for like six years now,” said Cate. “I’m honestly asking you.”

“It’s like he’s a walking spam email of lies with an endless supply of taxpayer cash to forward himself around all day,” concludes Cate.

Way to stick up for the boss, Mr. Cate.
