I'm surprised he can go out in public without being egged.

It's presumable that he greenlit this pointless project because he's personally profiting from it.

It there any evidence of this?


Why has he not been inducted on federal charges?

Considering the fact that there appears to be exactly zero corroboration of this claim on the internets, I'd have to go with "this".
There's plenty of reason to kick this bastard out of office.  Making up shiat only gives his supporters fuel for their keyboards.

Straight from TFA:

Florida has gone bankrupt under governor Rick Scott, yet there's still money to bulldoze the Turnpike rest stops and rebuild them exactly the same. It's presumable that he greenlit this pointless project because he's personally profiting from it.

Fark-ready, indeed.

I dunno...considering that it's Rick Scott, I find it as believable as not. I mean, it's the kind of thing he WOULD do, if there was any money to be made doing it. Next up: Scott orders highway department to dig holes, then fill them up again.

So cronyism and state-union corruption has to slam a brick upside your face then?

Government projects consist of 2 options:

Go over budget and force overtime to collect millions in wages, or

Finish early, but with the bonus of said overages already in the fund written into the contract.

Ignorance is bliss I suppose. By the way we need to raise taxes for schools!

Since this story is highly dubious (and I haven't noticed any rest stops getting bulldozed), how about we discuss the curious case of Reagan, Rick Scott's rescue dog that the Tampa Bay Times realized seemed to have disappeared off the face of the planet. The Times article includes this lovely bit, "At one point an exasperated reporter asked Burgess if he had killed the dog, and Burgess denied ever killing a dog, but still wouldn't say where Reagan was."

Hardly inept; he's still in office. Corrupt? Undoubtedly.
 
2013-01-15 01:33:47 AM
Your Blog Sucks.

The Governator bankrupted California? Really? Look at the state assembly and some really dumb voters for approving tons of crap without any way to fund them first (HSR is but one example out of many). California's Governor can't take a crap without the nod from them first. It's only going to get worse now that the state assembly lies in the hands of just one party, and it ain't the Governators party either.

Also what Tellingthem: said.

Obviously he's not inept. He's manipulated the system to collect large amounts wealth from the population and have enough friends not to land in prison. Inept would imply these things politicians such as Scott and others do aren't intentional. That there isn't some sort of self-serving plan behind their actions. Nothing inept about these popularity contest winners once we look at how their actions benefit them.

The site is in "beta," so I assume things like evidence and citations are coming in the final release.

You elect a person that, in any reasonable society, would ordinarily be a felon and you're surprised that he's a disaster?

Seriously?  Is Florida that disconnected from reality?

You know what?

Are the new rest stops more or less friendly to anonymous blow-jobs?

I have a friend who was wondering.

Elections have consequences.

Don't blame him, Floridians got the government they deserve. Blame the voters.

The contractor is Cone and Graham, INC. They are members of TransPAC. The contributions are mostly to Republicans. Total to Democrats: $500. Total to Republicans: $82,700. Even though there's no connection to Scott it's easy to see that the article isn't that far off about payoffs.

FuturePastNow: Yeah, is there a source for this other than some odd blog?


The post right above yours does. Though from reading that article it seems like there were legitimate reasons for the rebuilds. And I can't find any connections between the contractor (Cone & Graham, Inc) and Scott.
So yeah, this appears to be a non-story.

I live in California, which was bankrupted by a different corrupt republican governor.

yep, because California's finances were peachy keen before Arnold

Sadly yes. At least north of the I-4 corridor they love him. And I'm sure the panhandle is having a virtual circle-jerk for that bastard, with the word "liberal" being their pivotman.
