Impeachment of Rick Scott Is Fantasy
I wrote this tweet.
I am no fan of Rick Scott but I am wondering if people actually believe they can get the Republican legislature to support impeachment.
What would progressive charge Scott with for impeachment?
Scott is ethically-challenged but what has he done that rises to the level of impeachment?
What would get 2/3 of the Florida Senate to vote for removing Scott from office?
I see Ben Kirby shares my sentiment.
I am not interested in wasting my time calling for Scott's impeachment, for God's sake. He's a terrible governor, but he hasn't done anything criminal (yet). This is a distraction and a mind-numbing waste of valuable time and resources.
If people want to start a petition drive to impeach Scott then more power to them. Just don't expect impeachment to ever happen.
