Gov. Rick Scott's net worth drops by half

Gov. Rick Scott's net worth dropped by $115 million in 2010, but his income soared nearly 40 percent in the sluggish economy.

The hospital executive-turned-investor earned $11.5 million from investment income, interest and consulting fees, according to a recently filed financial disclosure form.

That's more than the $8.3 million he reported in 2009 and the $3.7 million he earned in 2008.

And while the value of his $9 million beachfront home in Naples increased slightly, his net worth dropped 53 percent to $103 million in 2010.

"I spent too much on the darn campaign," Scott joked Tuesday in Largo.

Scott is a Crook

I'm sure he will figure out a way to steal it all back.

Fred Off

Oh don't worry about Dick Scott...he'll fleece all of us before it's over...Crooks of a feather flock together

Good thing he has the Governor's mansion to live in, otherwise he'd be on the street with this pitiful sum.

Tim Rivers

How about we give him his money back if he quits now....

Winston

hr just found somewhere offshore to hide it until he's out of office.
