We have got to vote this crook out of office.  He gets away with the largest medicare fraud fine in history, making people sick and poorer, he is now again facing more questions about his flying around  the country and not reporting his expense.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, he is facing big questions of ethics.  Of course Tricky Ricky claims mudslinging from the Crist campaign and mud is about all we have left in Florida, since he has practically depleted the EPA.  

The Times had this info on the worst governor of the US.

The complaints follow a Times/Herald report last month that Scott's campaign did not disclose expenditures for use of the Cessna Citation Excel jet that has taken him all over the country on dozens of fundraising and campaign events since he officially became a candidate for re-election in December.
It took him to visit the Koch's in Colorado for sure.. What a guy !!!  He is their flunkie and most of we Floridians have had a belly full of this Piece of Crap that only a mother could love.   He has been dragging up old campaign ads of his departed mother from the grave to win re election.  " Such a Good Boy".  He was not born a Scott and was adopted by a truck driver and the truth is hard work did not make him rich.. He did not get his money the old fashion way of inheritence ... He stole it.
The complaints were initiated by Alejandro Victoria, 22, of Kissimmee, a recent political science graduate from Florida State University who said he is an active volunteer in Democratic politics but is not involved in Crist's campaign for governor.

"I wanted to hold Rick Scott accountable to not be above the law," Victoria said. "I think the governor should be held to a higher standard, and being transparent in this case is the right thing."

Scott has not made timely payment for the use of the aircraft; nor had he reported the airplane use values, either as an in-kind contribution or a loan," Meyer wrote in one of the complaints.

A second election law complaint contends that each use of the plane by Scott's campaign was an in-kind contribution that exceeded the $3,000 limit, and should have been reported as such but was not. Meyer said the cost of operating Scott's jet is about $2,000 per hour.

The ethics complaint alleges that under state law, the Scott campaign's use of the jet is a gift that must be reported each time, and it has not.

Scott's campaign has previously said it is complying with the law by periodically reporting expenses for air travel throughout the election cycle. The state Division of Elections has said that all campaign expenses must be reported in the month after they occurred.

Now we come up on a name of a company that is very familiar....  Columbia.  Ah, how conveinent to have a jet whose wife is the only officer of a company and that company owns the jet !  His company was  responsible for how much fraud again?  What is there to hide in these shady trips?   Never mind the 75 times pleading the 5th preserved the friend of Jeb Bush.  That friendship will come back and bite you Jeb if you are serious about 2016!!!!!
Several days after the Times/Herald report on April 5, Scott's campaign listed $5,534 in payments for air travel to the jet's owner, Columbia Collier Management of Naples, whose only officer is Scott's wife, Ann.
Scott's latest campaign report, for April, shows no air travel expenses.

The Republican Party of Florida listed payments of $11,323 to the company for travel on its April monthly report. A party spokesman said the payments were for transporting members of Scott's campaign staff

An earlier article in the Tampa Bay times had said this of old Stealth Scott...

:

No public airplane means no public records.

Scott's air travel reflects not only his wealth, but his preference for stealth. Despite his oft-stated support for transparency, Scott keeps his flight itineraries off tracking websites and even blacks out arrival and departure details on official schedules after the fact, citing the need for security.

I could go on and on and on about this lying piece of dog dung but the real people who live in the real world in the sunshine state and not lying dormant in the pocket of the Koch brothers know he is not fit as dogcatcher.   The Carlysle groupis also buying up mobile home parks and investing in trailer parks expecting Florida to get sicker and poorer.  I am surprised they are not investing in Tents.  I guess that would be too obvious.  Those Mobile Homes hold up so well in Hurricanes !!!!!  I have lived in my share of trailers and can tell you, they are hot, and depending on the mobile home, one can feel like a sardine.  One thing for sure, they are not energy  efficient.

 Please visit Sem Dem's blog and check out My stupid State.  

What makes me so angry, is this state can literally be a paradise.   The Tarzan movies were filmed here.  There are natural springs of clear blue water but disappearing everyday.  Scott has all but done away with the EPA in Florida.  Who would have thought one idiot and his greedy grifters could make Tarzan homeless?  Anyone who helped in depleting all natural beauty in the home of Tarzan, Jane and Cheetah, can only be deemed a meance to society.  Not another Governor can claim this kind of low life outrage.

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.
