In state plane squabble, PolitiFact Florida sides with J.D. Alexander

The checks have been cashed, and the planes are gone, but that isn't stopping Senate Republican Budget chairman J.D. Alexander from continuing to question Gov. Rick Scott over his authority to unload the official state aircraft. Citing statutes and the Florida Constitution, the Lake Wales Republican argues that Scott failed to respect "the Legislature’s constitutional duty to appropriate funds and your duty to spend appropriated funds in accordance with the law." Scott, in response, says Alexander’s wrong. "We went through the right process, worked with our general counsel," Scott says.

PolitiFact Florida decided to step in and referee.
