Is This Why Rick Scott Is Skipping A Deposition On Friday?

Posted

Why is Rick Scott skipping a deposition tomorrow? What reason could he have to risk court sanction just days before his election?

Looks like the answer is the same one it always is with Rick Scott: special interest cash. 

On Friday, Rick Scott will be hosting a fundraising event with the same special interests that he has lavished attention on for four years. Utility companies that keep raising rates. Sugar interests. Brutal private prisons.

What about the people of Florida, who just want their governor to tell the truth? Rick Scott’s skipping that event — after all, Scott knows he’d just have to plead the Fifth.
