Gov. Rick Scott's top adviser resigns

Mary Anne Carter, the Tennessee political operative who has run Gov. Rick Scott's executive office, submitted her resignation letter today. June 30 will be her last day.

"I feel really good about the decision," Carter told the Buzz. "I'll stay in close touch with the governor and continue to help anyway I can. But I'm going to do other things as well and spend as much time with my family as I can." (Read her resignation letter here.)

Carter's originally plan was to spend six months in Scott's office. She considered staying longer, but said the final decision was tipped by the need to spend more time with her husband and daughter living in Knoxville.

The resignation comes a day after Scott re-assigned his chief-of-staff, Mike Prendergast, to the Florida Department of Veterans' Affairs.

Dear Miami Herald Blogger, Michael C Bender. You need to get spell-check! Or be fired for not knowing how to type and spell simple words like THE and ORIGINAL. It's really kind of embarrasing.

Hey Kay, Bender works for the St. Pete Times/Tampa Buzz.
Same company though...
Perhaps you might want to find something more productive to get angry about, like Rick Scott screwing over everyone in our state.
