Governor Scott is planning a new effort to fix Florida’s voter rolls, even though they don’t appear to be broken.

Last week there was a three day education summit called by Governor Scott, and he failed to show up for the event. I don’t know the reason his schedule could not fit two hours to explain the significance of the summit, but he was a no-show.

A $85 million dollar Major Leauge Soccer stadium? Maybe a meeting on the Magic Junk Bonds?
