State argues that Scott's campaign finance appeal should be tossed

The Florida secretary of state argues in a brief filed with the 11th Circuit Court of Appeal this week that Republican candidate for governor Rick Scott uses faulty reasoning when he asks the court to throw out Florida's public campaign financing laws.

Attorneys for interim Secretary of State Dawn Roberts say that it would be a bad idea for the state to take the unprecedented step of withholding public financing this late in the election. Under Florida's public campaign financing law, Attorney General Bill McCollum is entitled to match what Scott spends by public financing if Scott exceeds the $24.9 million campaign spending limit. Scott appears to be meticulously trying to avoid that, however, having had his wife steer $8 million now into the 527 account that he controls.
