That Didn't Take Long--Rick Scott Scandal First Day

Already? Guess so. My Stupid State begins...

It only took a week for Scott to show his shady side, after campaign workers complained that they were paid for their services in gift cards, rather than the hard coin of the realm:

Mark Don Givens told Florida's WTSP News that he was expecting a paycheck after he made phone calls and knocked on doors for the Scott campaign, which made jobs a top issue in the election. Givens said he and other workers were upset after they were told by the campaign that they could not offer them a paycheck and given American Express gift cards instead.

"This would violate both tax laws and labor laws," Melanie Sloan, the Executive Director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) told TPMmuckraker in an email. "It looks like the newly elected AG will be investigating the newly elected governor."


  1. They renamed Monroe St. RICK SCOTT WAY for his inaugration in Tally. Appropriate.

    That is where all the lobbyists are in Tally.

  2. stop by face book. Floridian Against Rick Scott. Something (legally) has to be done with this guy.
