Who was the a-hole who asked Rick Scott who he would select to replace the late Steve Burton?

News of the passing of Tampa civic leader Steve Burton is still at the top of people’s Facebook pages, yet some a-hole thought it was appropriate to ask Governor Rick Scott if he’s had time to think about naming a replacement for Burton on the Hillsborough Aviation Authority.

“Right now, I just think about Steve’s family,” said Scott during a news conference Monday at Tampa International Airport,. “… We’ll do this in a methodical manner, try to find somebody as good as Steve to be there, but Steve will be tough to replace.”

 Steve Burton has been gone from this world for barely 48 hours, can we please put the ambition and chess-boarding on hold for just a moment!
