THE ROTUNDA - This episode features an in-depth interview with the woman now famous for calling Gov. Rick Scott an ‘as*hole,’ during a tense confrontation at a Gainesville Starbucks. As Scott retaliates with an attack ad, Cara Jennings speaks out to Gomes about her life as a community activist, her beliefs in Anarchism and why, on occasion, she refuses to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. While Jennings tells Gomes ‘as*hole’ was probably not the best word to call the governor, she goes on to list several other ways to describe Rick Scott.
