TPM:


Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi interrupted a press conference by Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) to ask him to prove to the state taxpayers that he’s not on drugs by peeing in a cup.


“You benefit from hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars every year, so would you be willing to pee into this cup to prove to Florida taxpayers that you’re not on drugs, that you’re not using that money for drugs?” Mandvi asked.


Scott replied that he’s “done it plenty of times.”


Mandvi then tried to pass a cup forward: “Would you pass this forward to the governor? We can all turn around, it’s fine.”


The press conference was to present Scott’s budget recommendations, but Mandvi’s question referenced the law proposed by Scott and passed by the state legislature that requires all welfare recipients to take a drug test before they can receive benefits from the state. In October, a district court judge issued an injunction against the law in response to a lawsuit by the ACLU.


Later, the Herald reports, Mandvi tried again to pass the cup forward: “I hate to keep harping on this, would you pee in a cup?”


Scott fired back: “You don’t get to run this.”

3. He's done it plenty of times? I doubt that!
If he did there must had been suspicion he was using drugs.

11. But not likely for the purpose of determing if using drugs.

4. Rick Scott is a quick draw liar.
Drug testing has only been around for maybe 20 years.

What job or reason would have put him in a position to be required a drug test?

5. Who said it was required?
He has peed in plenty of cups. Maybe it is because
he has/had a financial interest in testing labs???

The Daily Show should go for a stool sample from the Florida tool.

7. I'd be more comfortable with his viscous RW insanity if he *was* on drugs.
What's really, really scary is that he probably isn't.

10. One has to ask: Why has Presser peed in so many cups?
There are not many plausible answers; but here is are only ones that make any sense.

1: he has a drinking problem. In which case he either has a urinary blockage or uses a big gulp.

2: He has an aversion to public toilets.

3: He is a golden shower fetishist.

I suspect the latter.
