“Purge Overkill”: Jon Stewart Slams Gov. Scott for Florida Voter Purge

Stewart also slammed Gov. Scott's push for mandatory drug tests on welfare applications, which was justified with the false claim that welfare applicants use drugs more than the general population.  Watch the Daily Show clip below.
