Rick Scott's Transparancy Problem
Gov. Rick Scott's explanation for not using e-mail doesn't pass the laugh test. Scott tells workers at the Department of Elder Affair that the best way to contact him is snail mail. Scott said he doesn't want to be "embarrassed."
"If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me, I don't have e-mail," Scott said. "It's easier if I never get e-mailed. I get embarrassed by it that way. It's not as easy to communicate," Scott said. "Have a great day."
Scott doesn't want to leave an electronic trail. Scott was the former CEO of Columbia/HCA. Scott's hospital chain was fined $1.7 billion by the Justice Department. Columbia/HCA pleaded guilty to to 14 counts of felonies. Scott's own board forced him to resign.
Scott's infamous deposition video illustrates how adversed the governor is to providing information.
