Hillary's Story
In 2019, Rick Scott was sworn in as United States Senator from Florida and has is known for controversial investment schemes and his conservative position on issues like the death penalty, welfare, voter rights and school choice, along with his rejection in the scientific belief of climate change. But, in March 2020 Scott took things too far when he tried to block the passage of the Coronavirus Relief Bill.

Tina's Story
Louis Kealoha served in the Honolulu police department beginning in 1983 and, after working his way up, got sworn in as a police chief in 2009. But, in 2017, after an FBI probe surrounding, of all things, a stolen mailbox, the police chief, along with his deputy prosecutor wife, Katherine, found themselves mired in the muck.
