Additional Information on David Scott

* At an August 2009 town hall meeting that Scott organized in his home district, a local physician, Dr. Brian Hill, politely asked the congressman why he had expressed support for a government-run healthcare system, in light of how that same model had already failed miserably in Massachusetts. In response, Scott yelled at Hill and accused him of having come from outside the district in order to “hijac[k]” the meeting. Moreover, Scott told Hill that he should have had “the decency” to call the congressman’s office and “set up for a meeting” to discuss the issue privately rather than in the town-hall forum. But in fact Dr. Hill—who was not a Republican and was actually a resident of Scott’s district—had called the congressman’s office numerous times and gotten no response.
