As you may or may not know, Florida Gov. Rick Scott wants the sunshine state’s welfare recipients to pee in a cup to prove they’re not on drugs. A court has issued an injunction against that law.
The Daily Show’s correspondent Aasif Mandvi interrupted a Scott press conference to ask if he would do that same. Watch:
From Talking Points Memo:
Later, the Herald reports, Mandvi tried again to pass the cup forward: “I hate to keep harping on this, would you pee in a cup?”
Scott fired back: “You don’t get to run this.”
(Missouri is also making welfare recipients pee. And in Georgia, which has also proposed the Orwellian practice, a Democratic state lawmaker has introduced a bill requiring state legislators to take urine tests, too.)
Which lawmaker is going to propose pee-for-welfare it here in Virginia?
