Mob Associate Supports Rick Scott

Florida Governor Rick Scott has a mob associate in his leadership coalition. The man to help Florida get back on track is none other than Joe Ardolina of American Truck Sales (Sterling Designs Inc). He's a former vice president in the now defunct H&W Refuse Service whose president was Anthony Carione, fingered by Florida law enforcement along with his brother Frank Carione, as then active figures in the underworld. Another brother, Joseph Carione, pleaded guilty to defrauding the government as a co-defendant in a case that involved currently jailed Colombo crime boss Andrew Russo.

Ardolina's other now defunct business Rite-Way Sanitation Corp., incorporated in Florida, it uses the same name that was incorporated by Frank Carione in New York.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
