Gov. Rick Scott e-mails 'cleaned out' a third time

E-mails on Gov. Rick Scott's BlackBerry may have been lost in another technological mix-up inside his office, newly-released records show.

Scott and his staff have acknowledged that his account and about 50 others his two-month transition, a crucial stretch after Election Day when key hires are made and a first-year policy agenda is shaped, were lost when a contract lapsed with a private company that stored the e-mail data. Scott also lost about 50 e-mails from his iPad, when a staffer inside his office updated software for the device.

Now it's a BlackBerry. Story here.
