Watch a woman yell at Gov. Rick Scott in a Starbucks

5

April

Ouch.

A woman gave Gov. Rick Scott quite a talking-to in a Gainesville Starbucks. And it's all on YouTube.

She has since been identified as Cara Jennings, a former Lake Worth city commissioner and liberal activist.

In the video, Jennings yells at the governor for opposing Medicaid expansion, calling him an "a------" and spokeswoman Jeri Bustamante tries to intervene before the woman says "I'm  not talking to you."

Update: Gov. Rick Scott responds

Scott, for his part, turns to his centerpiece issue as governor.

"We've got a million jobs," he says.

That doesn't bring Jennings to his side. You can watch the whole confrontation, filmed and posted to YouTube by a man who identifies himself as Stephen Bender.
