TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Hacktivist group Anonymous has targeted Rick Scott, stating that it has "declared war" against the Florida Governor.

In a video released on Facebook featuring a computerized voice and person clad in a Guy Fawkes mask, the group demands that Scott be impeached and forced to resign.

Anonymous targets Scott claiming that he hasn't taken enough action to preserve ocean wildlife by "allowing the polluted waters from Lake Okeechobee to directly pass into the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean."

Anonymous claims that Scott is "lining his pockets," has made a "mockery of the judicial system," and "protects Florida's corrupt politicians."

The group ends it's monologue with "We do not forgive and we do not forget."

This isn't Anonymous' only interest in Florida current events.

CBS 12 in West Palm Beach reports that protesters and a reporter were recently arrested after police accused them of trespassing at Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg's home.

Anonymous posted Aronberg's home address, angry over his decision to not prosecute a former Palm Beach Garden's police officer who killed Corey Jones, according to CBS 12.

WCTV reached out to Governor Scott's office for comment on the video. They provided us with the following statement:

“Per standard procedure, our office made the Florida Department of Law Enforcement aware of this. Please contact Gretl Plessinger at FDLE at (850) 410-7001.”

The video in it's entirety can be viewed below.
