ICYMI: RICK SCOTT MISLEADING FLORIDIANS ABOUT STATE OVERSIGHT OF BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION

Documents, Reports Contradict Scott’s Statements

 

In response to multiple reports revealing that Rick Scott misled Floridians about his administration’s role in the Miami bridge tragedy, Caroline Rowland of the Florida Democratic Party released the following statement:

 

“In response to this terrible tragedy Rick Scott did what he always does: mislead and deceive Floridians for the sake of his own self-serving political interests. Continuing a pattern that Floridians are now all too familiar with, his statements have been directly contradicted by officials, experts and independent media reports. It’s another sad reminder that Scott will do and say anything to try and advance his own interests and why Floridians don’t trust him to look out for anyone but himself.”
