Kanjorski on Gov.-Elect Rick Scott: “Shoot Him”
by

Congressman Paul Kanjorski, the Pennsylvania Democrat who just lost his seat to Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta, a Republican, had another target on his mind before he lost his election.

Curiously, that would be Rick Scott, now the Republican Governor-elect of Florida.  Kanjorski is clearly not a Scott fan. In fact, he has suggested that the Governor-elect should be…shot. 

You read that right. Here’s the quote, which seemed to vanish in the pre-election haze. It was reported at the time in the Scranton Times:

“That Scott down there that’s running for governor of Florida,” Mr. Kanjorski said. “Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him [sic] and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him. He stole billions of dollars from the United States government and he’s running for governor of Florida. He’s a millionaire and a billionaire. He’s no hero. He’s a damn crook. It’s just we don’t prosecute big crooks.”

The people of Florida, apparently, have a slightly different view.
