When former Gov. turned Democrat Charlie Crist was in Broward last week, the political hype was all about his comments on Steve Geller's wife's brisket. There wasn't much meat for a fact-checker to dig into there. (Hey it's Broward...gotta have a little Jewish fact-checking humor.)
But today Gov. Rick Scott pays a visit to Broward to talk about his goal of reducing taxes. He'll be at Broward College at 4 p.m.
Scott will likely be a regular in Broward as he campaigns over the next year. The Democratic-rich county has about 250,000 registered Republicans and even more independents -- and the county has a lousy turnout record in non-presidential years which could help Scott. We hear that Scott is headed to a fundraiser at "Alligator Ron" Bergeron's Broward pad later this month. (Anybody have the invite please forward.)
While we wait for Scott to speak, here's a look at @PolitiFact Florida's recent claims by Scott about taxes.
