Rick Scott declines Comedy Central drug test

Florida Governor Rick Scott was asking for $1 billion more in education funding while handling a $2 billion budget gap.

Reporter Aasif Mandvi with Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with John Stewart" asked him to pee in a cup while the governor was taking questions on the budget.

Scott's had demanded that drug tests be required for welfare recipients, but a judge threw out the law because few welfare recipients tested positive for drugs.

The reporter tried to get a plastic cup passed up to Scott, so he could "prove to Florida taxpayers you're not on drugs."

"I've done it plenty of times," the governor responded.

Here is a link to the Rick Scott video:
