Apparently his goons were looking for people in the audience who were wearing buttons or other devices that were anti-Scott, anti-Republican, or pro-Liberal, and a few carried signs critical of the State budget he was signing. Most of those ejected, according to news reports, were elderly residents of The Villages retirement center where the signing event was held, not outside agitators. Evidently the ordinarily public Town Square at the complex there became private for this staged event, which seems exceptional, if not unprecedented.
Staged to the extent that school kids from one of Scott's pet charter schools were bused in, apparently on a Thursday school day. Then handed prepared signs to wave, that were meant to look home-made. Students were also led in chants of support by Scott staffers. It hasn't been reported yet if any of the words included: "Oh great and glorious leader, Father of our State!"
