Rep. George Moraitis, R-Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s latest worst legislator of all time.
George is a multiple award winner, though he may deserve it here more where he gleefully sticks it to poor and minority students.
When talking about the rising requirements for Bright Future scholarships he said, “There’s only so much money to go around for education. If you’re giving a merit-based award, it should be to the top students in the state.
Not completely unreasonable except when one considers he often votes to increase money for charters, vouchers and things that will profit the testing industry. Yeah he thinks we have plenty of money for them, but if you are poor and black, well you can do two words that rhyme with duck fit.
Our legislature is populated by despicable human beings.
