Gov. Scott urged to pardon 'Groveland Four'
Lake County commissioners make request
GROVELAND, Fla. – Lake County commissioners are supporting a new bill that would exonerate four black men accused of raping a white woman in 1949.
Commissioners unanimously voted Tuesday to support legislation urging Gov. Rick Scott to clear the so-called "Groveland Four."
The resolution comes two weeks after the mayor of Groveland issued a similar proclamation.
