Gov. Scott trails Crist, Bush in appointing black judges

Florida Gov. Rick Scott is on pace to appoint fewer African-American lawyers to judgeships than either of his two most recent predecessors, Charlie Crist and Jeb Bush. Midway through his four-year term, Scott has appointed 91 judges, according to records provided by his office. Six of those judges are black, and they include three obscure judges of compensation claims. Scott has appointed two black lawyers to circuit judgeships and both are in Miami-Dade. The full story is here.

Not to defend Rick Scott, but attacking him because Crist appointed 1.7% more black judges is out of order.
