Well it's been a pretty Governor based diary day.  I've bashed Scott Walker (R. WI), Tom Corbett (R. PA) and John Kasich (R. OH) today and I'm saving Nikki Haley (R. SC) and Greg Abbott (R. TX) for tomorrow.  But out of a long line of awful Republican Governors, Rick Scott (R. FL) deserves some serious hate:
Who is the worst Republican governor in the country?

Is it Wisconsin’s Scott Walker, who made national headlines by ramming through a ban on collective bargaining rights for working people in his state? Or is it Florida’s Rick Scott, who passed massive tax breaks for the wealthy while cutting teachers’ pay? Don’t forget Pennsylvania’s Tom Corbett, who boasts the lowest approval rating of any governor in the country. Or could the nation’s worst governor be South Carolina’s Nikki Haley, whose claims of widespread voting fraud were debunked by a taxpayer-funded investigation that was unable to find a single instance of fraud?

It’s a tough call. All of these Republican governors are bad, and all of them need to be replaced next year. But only one can be the worst. Click to vote on the worst Republican governor up for reelection in 2014.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
