Democratic Governors Association Executive Director Nathan Daschle unloads on Florida Republican gubernatorial nominee Rick Scott in a new letter posted by Politico (via Death, Taxes & Politics). Daschle calls on Republican Governors Association chairman and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour to quit campaigning on Scott’s behalf, which Barbour has done this week at a series of “unity” events.

In his letter, Daschle runs through the history of fraud at Columbia/HCA, the hospital chain Scott founded and mentions Bill McCollum’s refusal to endorse Scott. In conclusion, Daschle says “Rick Scott represents the worst of American politics” and calls him a “multimillionaire who became rich from a firm that stole money from taxpayers and seniors.”

“If this doesn’t disqualify Scott from being governor,” he writes, “you must ask yourselves: What would?”
