"Florida State Sen. Thad Altman describes himself as a 'conservative Republican' and a 'strict constitutionalist.' Unlike so many conservative Republican lawmakers and judges who claim to abide by the constitution while skipping the clauses that get in the way of their partisan agenda, Altman is walking the walk. Today, he joined a Democratic counterpart in the Florida state senate and sued Republican Gov. Rick Scott in the Florida Supreme Court for violating the state constitution when he ignored Florida law and refused federal funds for a democratically approved high-speed rail project that would create an estimated 24,000 jobs."
