Teamsters ethics complaint against Gov. Rick Scott thrown out

The Florida Ethics Commission has dismissed a Teamsters Union complain that Gov. Rick Scott had a conflict of interest pushing a state plan to privatize prison operations in 18 South Florida counties.

The commission decided the complaint had no legal basis and "fails to indicate, in a substantive, factual manner, a possible violation."

That’s a real shame, politics at it best… The allegations had merit, but then again, the governor’s office did have a for sale sign on it that was purchased for 70 Million Dollars!

Lol Mike, but what can we do? Either way, I haven't really seen Rick Scott do something so terrible to be kicked out yet.
