William E. Lewis Jr.
PALM BEACH, Fla.— Not known for being bashful, a PAC for Florida Governor Rick Scott has released a response in video form to the former small town commissioner whose profanity-laced tirade was caught on video at a Gainesville Starbucks earlier this week.

The video — appearing on Scott's YouTube channel "Let's Get to Work" — is intended to answer Cara Jennings' concerns, which have been viewed more than 2 million times:



The response, called "Latte Liberal Gets an Earful," includes a portion of the original video where Jennings asks, "A million jobs? Great, who here has a great job?"

The narrator quips, "Well, almost everybody – except those that are sitting around coffee shops, demanding public assistance, surfing the Internet, and cursing at customers who come in."

The video - produced to poke holes in Jennings' jobs claim — points out that over 9,300 jobs were created in the area in which Rick Scott visited.

"Cara Jennings, the woman who screamed at Gov. Scott, is a former Lake Worth city commissioner who was investigated for ethics violations," Michael Barnett, chairman of the Republican Party of Palm Beach told The Blaze. "(She is) part of the anarchist extremist cabal that we successfully ran out of the city."

"Latte Liberal Gets an Earful," appeared early Friday afternoon on a YouTube channel controlled by a political action committee.

"Completely disrespectful to call the Governor names in a public setting," Rico Petrocelli, executive director of the Broward Republican Party in Fort Lauderdale. "While you may not like Rick Scott personally, you should respect the office."

Bill Lewis is the principal of William E. Lewis Jr. & Associates and host of "The Credit Report with Bill Lewis" — a daily forum for business and financial news, politics, economic trends and issues on AM 740 WSBR in south Florida.
