‘The worst governor in the history of Florida?’ | MSNBC
If we’re going to talk about politicians struggling with email controversies, perhaps we should turn attention towards Florida Gov. Rick Scott. Carl Hiaasen is wondering whether the Republican is “the worst governor in the history of Florida,” and it’s worth appreciating why.
The trouble started in earnest with a fairly obscure case: a Tallahassee attorney sued the governor a few years ago in a real-estate dispute. But as the Miami Herald reported, the underlying controversy grew and ended up mattering quite a bit.
Gov. Rick Scott has agreed to spend $700,000 in taxpayer money to settle seven public records lawsuits alleging he and several members of his staff violated state law when they created email accounts to shield their communications from state public records laws and then withheld the documents. […]
Governor Rick Scott isn’t just a con man, nor are his cons confined to those that the mainstream media continues to rehash: his “policies” have ruined and ended countless lives, and will continue to ruin and end lives until feds investigate and prosecute him.
