When Scott directed the former commissioner for Lake Worth to the county hall clinic the conversation soon escalated.
“You cut Medicaid so I couldn’t get Obamacare,” said Jennings to a smiling Scott. “You’re an asshole. You don’t care about the working people. You should be ashamed to show your face around here.”
Scott signed a law in March, due to take effect on July 1, that cut off state funding to medical care facilities that provide abortions, including Planned Parenthood.
“He just signed into law a very prohibitive bill that affects women’s access to basic reproductive health care, so when I saw him I took the opportunity to talk to him about it,” said Jennings to the Palm Beach Post.
The governor chose to leave the establishment without his coffee.
