Florida Strong Attacks Florida House for 'Costly' Early Adjournment
The Florida House may have adjourned three days early during the 2015 regular legislative session nearly a month ago, but "nonpartisan" group Florida Strong released a new online ad Tuesday letting House Republicans know they haven't forgotten about the early adjournment.
The new ad, titled "Disgraceful," features several news clips which repeatedly say the Florida House just got up and left their post early.
"Ridiculous," "Childish Antics," and "Simply Indefensible" flash across the screen.
The ad also features a clip of incoming House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land O'Lakes, saying the House won't "go dancing" over expanding Medicaid during this year's legislative session.
The ad does not mention Obamacare, Medicaid or exactly why the House left early.
As Sunshine State News previously reported, Florida Strong just stepped onto Florida's political scene last week when it sent out mailers attacking House Republicans in swing districts. The group is an offset of Florida Watch Action which was responsible for attacking Gov. Rick Scott in 2011 and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney when he ran for president in 2012.
Sunshine State News reached out to Florida Strong spokeswoman Charly Norton (who may or may not live in Florida) to discuss who is funding the operation, but Norton did not respond to phone calls or emails from SSN.
