Video: The Daily Show Asks Rick Scott to Pee in a Cup

Remember in December when Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi was roaming around Tallahassee asking officials, including Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi to pee in a cup?  Well, the package finally made it onto the air last night.

The package opens with a big shot of the Port of Miami (ugh, don't associate us with this), but then winds up in the office of Republican Rep. Scott Plakon. Plakon rigorously defends the law which required anyone in Florida receiving state assistance to submit to a urine sample, but refuses to pee in a cup. He even has the nerve to refuse to file a bill requiring that all Florida legislators must take drug takes in order to serve.

Mandvi then confronts Scott himself at a press conference, and the Gov gets all scary and point fingered. Unfortunately, it seems the previously reported bit where Bondi handed him a cup of apple juice didn't make the final cut.
