ICYMI: Rick Scott Still Fighting Disclosure of Conflicts, How Much He Made Off Being Governor

 

 

Two new reports from the Associated Press and Miami Herald reveal Scott is continuing to fight in court to hide his secret financial account and how he used his position as governor to enrich himself. The Tampa Bay Times previously reported that Scott’s secret account violates federal disclosure rules for Senate candidates.

 

From FDP Spokesman Sebastian Kitchen: “What is Rick Scott hiding? Are his conflicts of interest even deeper than previously reported? We already know he had interest in companies doing business with the state while he is governor. Rick Scott’s years-along, costly, self-serving delay tactics to hide his conflicts of interest highlight how he looks out for himself — not the people of Florida — and are another example he’ll say anything to advance his own agenda.”

 

Associated Press: Florida Gov. remains locked in legal battle over finances.

 

 

 

Tampa Bay Times/Miami Herald: Scott’s legal battle “is a delaying tactic as he seeks to run out the clock on having to disclose how much money he has made being governor of Florida.”
