The Next Scott Scandal

Late breaking news. Scott is such a decent, kind hearted man, he'd never encourage an atmosphere like this at one of his agencies...would he?

A former employee of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity who uncovered "systemic" fraud within the agency has won a whistleblower lawsuit against the state, her attorney said Monday.
The whistleblower, 30-year state employee Dianne Parcell, discovered 97 instances in which the agency had inappropriately reported Floridians to collections agencies for alleged unemployment overpayments. Parcell reported the findings to her supervisors, but was told to drop her investigation, she said...

A subsequent investigation revealed that as many as 19,000 Floridians had been wrongly reported to collections agencies, attorney Keisha Rice said.
