Why do you feel the need to mislead and lie about this guy?
I implied nothing.......I posted links to several articles which mention the potential conflict of interest - I posted a link to Governor Scott's own words where he refuses to say he will remove any possibility of a conflict of interest by agreeing not to use his own company to perform drug tests on state employees - I pointed out that his company already handles state workman comp cases for the airport which really should
be considered a conflict of interest but for some reason has not been mentioned as of yet as far as I know.
And, also as pointed out, should Governor Scott get his way and mandate 4x yearly drug testing for all state employees at a yearly taxpayer cost of 2.7 million dollars and he does NOT remove his company from the pool of perspective contract bidders then, yes, there IS a definite conflict of interest.
Why are you the only one here, left or right alike, who does not see that or will not admit it?
What's the problem, 13? Why the need to deflect, accuse and reword?
Or can it be that you do not see how spending 2.7 million taxpayer dollars a year without removing the possibility of putting it into your own pocket can possible be wrong if one of your beloved tea-party candidates is the one doing it?
How is it ok that he promised, as part of his campaign, that if elected he would put his holdings in Solantic into a blind trust and yet he did not do so - instead simply putting his stock in his own company in his wife's name?
You are aware that Scott has already been in hot water for devious business practices concerning medical matters, aren't you? He was forced to resign as Chief Executive of Columbia/HCA in 1997 amid a scandal over the company's business and Medicare billing practices; the company ultimately admitted to fourteen felonies and agreed to pay the federal government over $600 million.
If a scum sucking, swine-pig liberal
had that kind of history and then pulled this kind of medical "mandate" you'd be all over his ***** and you know it.
