Scott lashes out at McCollum over Solantic lawsuit
Source: Florida Times Union

By Brandon Larrabee
TALLAHASSEE - An already bitter Republican race for governor turned increasingly nasty Tuesday as multimillionaire Rick Scott accused Attorney General Bill McCollum of abusing his office after a McCollum supporter filed a lawsuit over a Jacksonville-based business Scott helped found.

In a heated news conference, Scott lashed out at a series of allegations against Solantic, a group of 34 health clinics Scott co-founded in 2001. Scott, still a majority shareholder in the company, said the emerging accusations were the result of a smear campaign launched by McCollum, once a front-runner who has recently fallen behind Scott in the polls.

But Scott also refused to release a video deposition he gave in a separate civil case six days before entering the GOP primary for governor. The latest blowup between the GOP rivals was prompted in part by a lawsuit filed by a McCollum contributor seeking to force Collier County Reporting to release the deposition.

"But as a candidate for governor, his role in a possible third degree felony is a very public matter, one that could have ramifications for all Republicans running for office."

2. Har-har.
I think this is funny. If McCollum had shown consistency going after all the graft that residents of Florida had brought to his attention when he was AG, he wouldn't have had a problem handling this accusation of abuse of power.

You reap what you sow.

" The proposal comes at a time when McCollum is trailing in the polls behind Rick Scott in the GOP gubernatorial primary race. The primary is Aug. 24, but early voting is already underway.

Scott's campaign immediately issued a statement criticizing McCollum's ``flip-flopping'' on the controversial Arizona immigration law......"

4. Scott wants to get to a very public office, running in a very private way.
He won't speak to the press, editorial boards, etc. He only wants people to hear what he pays for you to hear! This guy would not last a week in New York!

Scumbag is too nice a word for this guy...
