Florida Gov. Scott Dead in 2006?
Mistakenly dead, that is.
Florida Gov. and head vote purger Rick Scott cast a provisional ballot in 2006 because officials mistakenly thought he was deceased.
Collier County election officials had received a Social Security Death Index Death Record that led them to believe he had died on January 27, 2006.
In fact the deceased was Richard E. Scott, who had the same birthday as the governor, December 1, 1952. The governor's full name is Richard Lynn Scott.
R.L. proved himself very much alive (to the detriment of all Florida residents) and was permitted to vote.
