Scott Backs Away from Election Law He Signed

Facing a highly critical group of black legislators, Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) distanced himself from a controversial election law that led to fewer early-voting days and long lines, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Said Scott: "It was not my bill. We've got to make changes, I agree... The Legislature passed it. I didn't have anything to do with passing it."

Scott signed the bill into law in 2011.
