Received this e-mail today from Charlie Crist's (D. FL) gubernatorial campaign regarding Governor Rick Scott (R. FL) and equal pay:
A woman working full-time in the United States makes 77 cents for every dollar a man makes.

That's not fair or right -- and it's something our government can take steps toward fixing by passing laws like the Paycheck Fairness Act, the Lilly Ledbetter Act, and more.

Our governor could play a role in demanding that action from Congress -- but Rick Scott won't say whether he supports equal pay for women.

Floridians deserve to know what he believes. Add your name to demand an answer from Scott on where he stands on equal pay.

I know where Charlie stands -- he's always been our advocate. He supports equal pay for equal work, and raising the minimum wage, which benefits women the most.

Does Rick Scott agree? Or does he stand with the extremists of his party, some of whom don't seem to think women are equal to men?

Scott's silence leave us wondering...

Sign your name to call on Scott to pick a side:

More soon,


Jessica Clark
Deputy Campaign Manager
Charlie Crist for Governor

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.
