Buyer's Remorse event focusing on Rep. Dan Webster tomorrow




Lest you think Gov. Rick Scott is unfairly bearing the brunt of all the ire in Florida about the current state of affairs in our region – bad economy, no jobs, no end in sight – we'd like point out a rally taking place tomorrow that shares some of the blame with another recently elected Tea Party darling: U.S. Rep. Daniel Webster, who's earned a reputation for being, well, a do-nothing since he unseated Alan Grayson last November.

Working America, an affiliate of the AFL-CIO, is hosting a Buyer's Remorse booth at Colonial Plaza tomorrow to accept ballots from voters who want to take back their vote for Webster, who they say hasn't done enough to create jobs in this Central Florida economic dustbowl we call home. The booth will be up from 4-7 p.m. tomorrow, Aug. 17, at 595 N. Primrose Drive.
