RPOF censors Sen. Dockery's attaboy for Rick Scott

Republican Sen. Paula Dockery who initially ran for governor only to see the Republican establishment back Bill McCollum, gushed in a press release last night about Rick Scott's win and the lessons for the Republican Party of Florida:

"For too long, true Republican principles have been put by the wayside in favor of the special interest agendas that fund the party elite. I wholeheartedly look forward to what tonight's election results mean: a revitalized party that is beholden only to the conservative electorate who demonstrated their trust and confidence with the power of their vote."

RPOF didn't want to touch it. Spokeswoman Katie Betta wrote:

Senator Dockery,  

I apologize, but we are not able to send this out as it violates the portion of our e-mail policy that relates to negative comments regarding the RPOF and/or other Republicans.

If there is any way you can revise this release, I’d be happy to run it through our political department again.

It's the same RPOF that trashed Rick Scott's "false rhetoric." It then censored Scott's attempted rebuttal on the grounds that he was making inappropriate comments. More here on that.
