Fla. Governor's Top Aide Resigns Amid Scrutiny
People always say, "You can't make up this stuff."

Well, you could, but it would be totally implausible, so you wouldn't.

Fla. Governor's Top Aide Resigns Amid Scrutiny

By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. May 13, 2012 (AP)

{snip>

Florida Gov. Rick Scott's chief of staff has abruptly resigned amid news stories examining his job performance and handling of contracts.

<snip>

The Associated Press recently reported that while working for the state Senate, MacNamara helped steer a $360,000 no-bid consulting contract to a friend who now leads a task force rooting out state government waste.

The Miami Herald and St. Petersburg Times reported about other contracts and how MacNamara clashed with one agency head over MacNamara's decision to let the state's film commissioner travel to the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

Ways to "cut" government waste!

You know another way to "cut' government waste? Massive medicare fraud, like that indulged in by Florida's Governor.
