American Bridge savages Rick Scott appointees' scandals and controversies


Amid the outfall over chief of staff Adam Hollingsworth's admission he lied about his degree years ago, Gov. Rick Scott is again the target of a video montage made by American Bridge 21st Century, a liberal group that has an extensive media-tracker network.

This video -- a greatest-hits list of resignations, controversies and scandals that have nagged at Scott -- juxtaposes how the governor stands by appointees and insists they've done a "great job," only to see them resign.

One point Scott defenders will be quick to note: An independent panel in Indiana cleared former Education Commissioner Tony Bennett of wrongdoing in a school-grading controversy (more here). Separately, in Indiana, Bennett faces an ethics complaint for allegedly using government workers for campaign purposes.
