PolitiFact Florida rewards Haridopolos with Full-Flop on high-speed rail position

When Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced on Wednesday that he would reject $2.4 billion in federal funds for a bullet train from Orlando to Tampa, many Republican and Democratic legislators immediately criticized him for acting too hastily. Some conservatives praised the governor for sticking to his anti-spending principles, and a handful of Republicans offered tepid statements that resembled support for Scott. Kind of, anyway.

Then there was Republican Senate President Mike Haridopolos, a candidate for U.S. Senate in 2012.

Haridopolos said -- nothing. Crickets. He finally spoke (issued a press statement) on Friday. PolitiFact Florida runs his words through the Flip-O-Meter.
