Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) faced sharp criticism Tuesday during a session with two dozen members of the state legislature's black caucus.
The caucus, composed entirely of Democrats, called Scott out for not vetoing a 2011 bill that would affect young and minority voters and for not extending early voting to avoid long lines at the polls, the Associated Press reported.
Scott was also criticized for lack of diversity in his judicial appointments. State Rep. Darryl Rouson (D) called Scott's judicial appointment record "disappointing" and "appalling" according to The Herald Tribune.
The governor stood his ground, claiming to have no involvement in the 2011 elections bill and few judicial appointment options thanks to nominating panels.
The caucus also condemned Scott for not embracing the Affordable Care Act and the expansion of Medicaid. Scott defended his stance, citing cost concerns.
In response to past criticisms, Scott ordered a review of voting procedures to avoid yet another Florida election debacle.
