PolitiFact Florida checks the calls on Gov. Rick Scott's robocalls



Gov. Rick Scott's robocalls to voters made national news. When the group Pink Slip Rick solicited calls to Scott, PolitiFact Florida could not resist fact-checking some of the claims.

Chris S. said: "I really can't believe that you cut PBS of all things. My kids sit around and watch PBS in the early morning. They learn so much from it. And to have the state cut funding for PBS is despicable."

Debra B. said: "Uh yeah, Gov. Rick Scott, you've got a lot of nerve spending a quarter of a milllion of our tax dollars to robocall people and tell them how good a job you're doing."
