Have you noticed that Senator Marco Rubio was grilled over his 2nd Amendment position and now Florida Governor Rick Scott is being called on to answer in the aftermath of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting, told Morning Joe on Monday that he thinks Gov. Rick Scott should be “held accountable” for the failure of three sheriff’s deputies to confront the gunman. Law enforcement sources confirmed to news outlets that three deputies from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office remained outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High as the shooter opened fire, eventually killing 17 people.
Hogg, appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, said the news is “raising concern” in his community, before accusing elected officials of attempting the blame the shooting on “bureaucracy.”

While the left demanded we NOT politicize the shooting of Republican politicians on a baseball field, including Congressman Steve Scalise, because the assassin was inconveniently a liberal Bernie Sanders supporter….
Or, heaven forbid, call for gun control. Only the shooting Republicans and black communities deserve such decency of restraint.
When it now comes to the left and their recently-activated children demand the crime not be politicized, we all know that’s exactly what they’re doing.
Republican Marco Rubio represents Florida in the United States Senate. Governor Rick Scott runs the state. But there’s also a politician who represents Broward County where the incident occurred whom we are hearing NOTHING about, thus is not also being swept up in the political-accountability dragnet…
Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, D-Fla., urged those present at a vigil honoring victims of a mass shooting at a high school in her home state on Wednesday to hold elected officials responsible.
“We must hold other people’s elected officials accountable. We must make sure that they hear us,” she said at the vigil Thursday evening.

When Wasserman-Schultz said, “We must hold other people’s officials accountable”, she’s saying don’t point fingers at me and the media/progressive rabble will do what they’re told.
It must be nice to be a Democrat.
