Black caucus asks Gov. Scott for more diverse judges
Gov. Rick Scott was urged Tuesday by the Florida Legislative Black Caucus to appoint fewer "Scott clones" and more African-Americans to judicial openings.
Two of the 36 judges Scott has appointed since January are African-American, a record Rep. Darryl Rouson called "bleak."
"They might not always think like you, but they respect the rule of law," said Rouson, D-St. Petersburg.
