Late last week, Gov. Rick Scott blindsided tens of thousands of disabled Floridians and their caregivers by signing an executive order to immediately cut their funding.
Yet that very same day, the governor made time for a photo op — for the Special Olympics Torch Run.
"We've got to make sure that we take care of those who have struggled and have a disadvantage," the governor said with the cameras present.
Scott was right, even if his timing was galling.
Florida's Agency for Persons with Disabilities serves about 35,000 people — from the mildly disabled to wheelchair-bound Floridians who can barely do a thing for themselves.
