As Republican Party Releases Part of Their Audit, Will Rick Scott Release Deposition?
Today, the corrupt insiders at the Reputation Party of Florida, after a week of being called out for their refusal to be transparent, finally released part of their internal audit conducted after indicted Republican Chairman Jim Greer resigned.  Now that the Party has reluctantly released part of the audit, Floridians are demanding to know whether disgraced executive Rick Scott will release the deposition he gave six days before he announced his candidacy for Governor.
"While we remain disappointed the Republican Party continues playing political games rather than releasing their full audit including 'Management Letter' and 'Balance Sheet Notes' for public scrutiny, at least indicted Republican Chairman Jim Greer's successor John Thrasher is bending to public pressure by releasing part of the audit," said Eric Jotkoff, spokesperson for the Campaign for Accountability 2010.  "Now that the Republican Party is finally releasing part of their audit, it's time for Thrasher to demand that disgraced executive Rick Scott to release his Solantic deposition." 
"Given the Republican scandals and Rick Scott's record of overseeing the largest Medicare fraud in American history, Florida Republicans have a long road ahead in regaining credibility in the eyes of Floridians," Jotkoff added.  "They can't start down that path however until they release the rest of their audit and convince Rick Scott to release his deposition."
