Rick Scott’s claim to transparency is the most laughable political spin. The only thing transparent about Rick Scott is his commitment to secrecy and shady dealing.
It look legal action to force Scott to show the public his investment portfolio, and he has the gall to claim he values transparency?
But don’t take our word for it. Ask Republicans like Joe Negron and Steve Crisafulli.
In 2010, before Rick Scott was the GOP’s problem child, Negron and Crisafulli told him in a public letter, “If you remain unwilling to release these materials” — the Solantic deposition — “and answer questions on these issues, we believe you should immediately withdraw from the race.”
Rick Scott hasn’t been transparent a day in his whole career. That’s why Floridians can’t trust him.
