It’s Not Working: After Pay-To-Play Contracts Exposed, Rick Scott’s Finance Chair Forced Out

Posted

Today, the Florida Democratic Party released the following statement in response to the resignation of Rick Scott’s Finance Chair, Mike Fernandez:

"With his pay to play tactics exposed, the turmoil in Rick Scott's campaign has become impossible to hide,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesman Joshua Karp. “After giving Mike Fernandez over $1 billion in state contracts, Rick Scott thought he had found his money man for 2014. But sunshine is the best medicine, and with their relationship exposed, it was only a matter of time before Mike Fernandez had to leave Scott's campaign. 

"It looks like Rick Scott’s new slogan, 'let’s keep working,' actually refers to his never-ending search for replacements to his scandal-plagued, soon-to-be fired senior officials.”
