Anonymous group takes aim at Fla. Gov. Rick Scott

Another controversial politician – this time, Florida Gov. Rick Scott – has wandered into the crosshairs of We Are Anonymous, which posted a video on Facebook excoriating Scott for his inaction in preventing polluted Lake Okeechobee water from being dumped into the Atlantic Ocean.

“As the rainy season is fast approaching, we direct the polluted waters be redirected into the state Capitol's front doors and remove Rick Scott as the governor. The residents of Florida and citizens of the world will no longer be the subject of his greed and weakness for his self-worth,” a figure wearing Anonymous's trademark Guy Fawkes mask called Scott out for a “collusion of corruption” and mocking the judicial process.

In the past, We Are Anonymous has launched a number of campaigns against individuals and organizations, including defacing Chinese business and government websites.
