Scarborough: Dump Sansom

Joe Scarborough, former Congressman and host of the widely popular “Morning Joe”, calls on Florida Republicans to dump the Speaker of the Florida House.

The events of the past week have revealed Barack Obama to be a politician who remained silent while a political ally got entangled in sleazy Chicago scandals. What does Obama’s silence say about his character?

That’s a question Florida Republicans should be asking themselves today, as their House speaker finds himself in the middle of a growing ethical storm.

Rep. Ray Sansom, R-Destin, has been a friend of mine and a political ally since I first ran for Congress in 1994. But like Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, the Ray Sansom that I have read about bears little resemblance to the guy I have known for 15 years.
