Gov. Rick Scott tonight has ordered the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to pursue the case of missing transition e-mails.
As the Herald/Times reported Thursday, the e-mail accounts from Scott's transition from candidate to governor were deleted from the private computer server where they were stored, potentially erasing public records that state law requires be kept.
Scott has asked law enforcement to investigate why the e-mails were deleted and whether the documents can be recovered.
