Rep. Scott Franklin

Representative for Florida’s 15th District

pronounced skot // FRANK-lin

Franklin is the representative for Florida’s 15th congressional district (view map) and is a Republican. He has served since Jan 3, 2021. Franklin is next up for reelection in 2022 and serves until Jan 3, 2023.

Franklin is among the Republican legislators whose attempt to disenfranchise Democratic states in the 2020 presidential election was a part of the months-long attempted coup that included the January 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol. On January 6, 2021 in the hours after the attack on the Capitol, Franklin voted for the exclusion of all of the votes in Arizona and/or Pennsylvania — states narrowly won by Democrats — from the Electoral College count that determined the next President of the United States. Legislators voting to disenfranchise these states were fooled by, or actively participated in, the same lies, conspiracy theories, and preposterous legal arguments about the election that motivated the insurrection at the Capitol.
