Koch, Bush, Scott FL Water Poisoning Corruption Case Heats Up.

DailyKos has a new Diary piece by 'Leslie Salzillo' on the citizens and State of Florida's dilemma as a result of corruption by Jeb Bush and Rick Scott to benefit the Koch brothers bottom line at the expense of poisoning the St. John's river.

Kossack's Salzillo new piece is titled "UPDATE New Legal Action Exposes Bush, Scott, Koch Brothers Scandal".
[br][hr][br]


As iterated by Leslie Salzillo's piece, this has been a protracted litigation against some powerful people, for a long period of time. A judge who was handpicked by Jeb Bush, has constantly ruled for the Koch brothers.

DUH!

According to Leslie, she was asked to do a previous story on this issue by Florida attorney at law, Steve Medina. She did the first thread in response to his request in Salzillo's February 2015 piece titled "Pipeline Scandal".

It's not often that any attorney goes against huge powers that be and publicly seeks someone to tell the dirty tales. Our KUDOs much goes out to Steve Medina (who is working the case pro bono - by the way).

This is counselor Steve Medina's original letter to Leslie Salzillo, in Feb. 2013 - stating the case that;

We have learned recently that Florida Governor *Rick “Fifth Amendment” Scott is, how shall we say, ethically-challenged. Actually, that has been known for a long time, but who’s counting the past, this is Florida, land of forgiveness, opportunity, and no state income tax! Give them your relaxed, your wealthy, your huddled plutocrats yearning to breathe free. Put your wretched refuse beneath their teaming shores. Send these, the multi-homed, tempest-tossed, to them: Their elected officials snuff out their lamp beside the golden door.
You may know Florida’s immediately past commissioner of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement seems to have been given the heave ho by Governor Scott not only for patently political reasons but without particular attention to Florida law. http://www.dailykos.com/... (In Florida, if you are Governor Scott, perhaps you would not want an FDLE commissioner who actually investigates things, especially potential white collar crimes involving public corruption.)

Meanwhile, you probably don’t know that, for the past two years, thanks to Governor Scott, a veritable fountainhead of toxic waste has been directly dumped every day into the heart of “Florida’s American Heritage River,” http://upf.com/... the St. Johns. As discussed below, it is released through what is contended in a legal action to be an illegally-approved pipeline, the circumstances of which Governor Scott, as the current chairperson of Florida’s Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust Fund, refuses to investigate.

To investigate these circumstances would be to investigate the highly questionable actions of yet another state agency, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. These actions in turn reach back into the Jeb Bush administration (1999-2007), when then Governor Bush and the Florida Cabinet, over the objection of then Attorney General Charlie Crist, gave preliminary approval for a Georgia-Pacific pipeline from its Palatka paper mill to the St. Johns River.





There's a whirlwind around the web about the water poisonings going on, in our country and around the world. So much so, yours truly acquired a website that will soon begin, titled "Global-Anti-Fracking-Initiative.com".

Enigmatically, our oligarchs (such as the Bush's) are buying up water rights, as Cheney and others poison waters by fracking chemicals and Florida politicos Jeb Bush and Rick Scott help the Koch brothers scandalously poison the St. John's river in Florida.

These blights upon our world are corrupting our courts, systems of justice and our future - for the sake of unjust enrichment and it MUST be STOPPED at ALL COSTS.



[center][font size=6] PETITION SEEKING INVESTIGATION [/center][/font]

We see it all around U.S. (and the world) and we are like spell bound children looking upon our first lightning storm; in awe at the impending doom coming straight at U.S.

If you care to join the fight, then please sign the PETITION a Criminal Investigation of Governor Rick Scott's give away of land (and poisoning water rights) to the Koch brothers.

Here's a link (Kock Brother's Rick Scott Scandal) to the DU thread by our veteran 'eridani' - with some more links to the DailyKos earlier piece by Leslie Salzillo (shame more of us here at DU aren't paying attention).

There's also a Scribd link (HERE) by attorney Steve Medina, who put up his filings for all to see.

Thank you Mr. Medina, DailyKos Leslie Salzillo and our own eridani - for bringing this troubling matter to our attention.

Wouldn't it be nice to nail these turds upon our world - before the election!

I'm just sayin........ (and wishin....)
[br][hr][br]
[center][font size=6] UPDATE [/font][/center]

Here's the link to the DailyKos story - but it seems to be working 1/2 the time.
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/06/13/1392660/-UPDATE-New-Legal-Action-Further-Exposes-Jeb-Bush-Koch-Brothers-Rick-Scott-GP-Scandal

Attorney Steven A Medina is doing this case out of his own pocket and I ask that someone help start a Go Fund Me or something to assist. He now works for the public defenders office in Florida and emailed me a nice thank you.

One of the good ones!

This pic is from the Dailykos story and shows how the system really works.

And a great WOO HOO to all of you signing the PETITION - that is getting real close to 10K

Just a word... (last couple of times it was kumquat)

Have any preferences?

15. Poisoning the St. John's River?

That cuts in the heart of red country.

Now, if a smart Florida Democrat were to look deeper into this issue, they might find a rallying point for the next election,

If he could make one dollar at the taxpayers' expense he'd go for it. Even if it put the taxpayers' lives at risk. He's done it before and he will sure as hell do it again.
