“The Legislature makes it easy for officials to get away with conflicts of interest through loopholes in the ethics code,” said Dan Krassner, executive director of Integrity Florida, the nonpartisan research institute and government watchdog group. “Corruption has been institutionalized in Florida with flawed policies like blind trusts and political appointees issuing advisory opinions on what’s ethical.”
The governor, the Senate president and the House speaker appoint the members of Florida’s Commission on Ethics.

Germany has dramatically reduced its reliance on un-renewable energy.
Just as dramatically, Florida has increased its reliance on un-renewable energy.
Florida Governor Rick Scott, Senate President Don Gaetz, House Speaker Will Weatherford, Senator Joe Negron, Representative Larry Lee and Chief Financial OfficerJeff Atwater refuse to represent me, on a continual basis, i.e.; all of them maintained that when state run, state subsidized Citizens Property Insurance claimed that 90 days was far less than 90 days in order to keep money they didn’t earn, that Citizens should get away with doing so.
On a related note, they all reserve some non-existent right to remain silent on unlawful Florida foreclosures resulting from Forced Placed Insurance.
I’ve hardly been silent about what all they’re up to in dragging Florida backwards, including making Florida THE most Jim Crow state in the nation between unconscionable redistricting and destroying Charlie Crist’s felon rights restoration program, making sure that non-violent, first time offenders have a slim-to-none chance at ever voting again.
And then there’s conviction corruption that keeps known innocents inside, and killers on our streets, and prisons so freakishly manned that even an 18 month sentence could kill you. Rick Scott’s got fingers in the prison privatization pie, too, with his affection for GEO Group and his failure to act against Corizon for their role in the killing of a man serving a two year sentence.
Tallahassee’s Culture of Corruption is flourishing, nourishing only those who are already overfed. Their rips-offs aren’t garden variety thuggery, “Your money, or your life.” Their rip-offs are instead a superweed, “Your money, and your life.”
