Florida Lawmaker Embroiled In His Own Blackface Controversy

A Florida state lawmaker is rejecting calls for him to resign over a blackface photo.

Scrutiny over the high school photo has returned, despite it first surfacing before Republican Representative Anthony Sabatini was elected.

He says the photo was "decontextualized," and was part of a prank between him and a black friend in high school.

The controversy over the photo comes after the Florida Secretary of State stepped down because of a photo that showed him in blackface at Halloween.
