Daily Show Reporter Asks Rick Scott to Pee in a Cup

You can bet that whoever let The Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi into increasingly unpopular Gov. Rick Scott's press conference today is going to get a dressing down tonight. The comedian, who we're assuming is preparing an upcoming piece on Scott for the show, asked the governor to pee in a cup. Watch from Naked Politics below.

"You've benefited from hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars every year, so would you be willing to pee into this cup to prove to Florida taxpayers that you're not on drugs,'' Mandvi ask the governor.

"I've done it plenty of times," Scott replies.

Mandvi then tries to pass the cup up to Scott and suggests to the rest of the press pool that they all turn around so the Governor can supply his bodily fluids.

Scott had tried to take the piss out of welfare recipients, literally. He spearheaded a law last year that required any welfare recipients of state money to pass a drug test. That law was thrown out by a federal court, but Scott plans to repeal the decision.
