Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, September 03, 2018

Florida Sun-Sentinel: Gov. Rick Scott's purportedly "blind" trust isn't supposed to tell him or anyone else what it does with his money. He's not allowed to direct where it goes. But somehow Scott's trust and his wife both invested in the parent company of a high-speed passenger rail firm whose projects the governor publicly supports. Both also invested in a Michigan plastics firm that has made parts for the passenger train. The sale of that company yielded $550 million in windfalls to the Scotts. And both invested, although separately, in a total of two dozen hedge funds registered in the Cayman Islands, a place often linked to tax avoidance.

Unhappy with all the money he made denying people health care Scott continues to put personal profits above all other considerations. This takes time and puts the peoples business on the back burner every time.

Pleading the Fifth Amendment 75 times just means he is smart. Donald Trump smart. Crooked smart.
