Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics



Winner of the week

Decaf. If ever we saw an effective promotion for switching to decaffeinated coffee, it was the viral video of the woman in a Gainesville Starbucks screaming at Rick Scott. At the same time the governor, based on his shrinking response, might benefit from higher octane java.

Loser of the week

Florida Democrats. Wonder what suspected scallywag congressional members the U.S. House Ethics Committee is investigating these days? Check the committee's home page and the first two names that pop up are U.S. Reps. Corrine Brown, D-Jacksonville, tied to an allegedly fraudulent charity, and Alan Grayson, D-Orlando, accused of mixing personal financial and political activity with his congressional work.
