Now you can robocall Rick Scott



Fed up with those RPOF-paid for Gov. Rick Scott robocalls?

Now you can robocall Scott back. The group,, is letting people record 60-second phone calls that they will then send to Scott's office on Aug. 15.

"He's interrupted you during dinner. He's interrupted you when you're getting the kids ready for bed. He's interrupted us. Dozens of times. For months. Each time with those annoying recorded message phone calls," the group said on its website. "It's time for us to get our revenge!"

The group is asking people to send along their name and phone number, then they'll call you so you can record your message. Dozens of submissions already have been submitted.

"Stop calling me Gov. Scott," says Thomas B. "I would never vote for you if you were the last candidate in this planet. Forget it. You're an idiot. And you're corrupt. And I don't want anything to do with you, or your government. Bye!"

In another call, an 8-year-old girl who identifies herself as Isabel says: "Hi Gov. Rick Scott. My name is Isabel. I am 8 years old. I think you are a bad governor because my school's budget has been cut because of you. P.S., my mom's a teacher and we wish we could give you a pink slip."
