A tale of Rick Scott, dirt digging and shady public records

A Memphis company that helped dig up dirt on Gov. Rick Scott's campaign opponents has relocated to the state capital. Among its new clients: Florida taxpayers.

It's unclear, however, exactly what Floridians received for their $25,000.

Scott's office, which approved the payment, said no documents related to the company's research on applicants for Scott's administration during the three month transition between Election Day and inauguration exist.

But the Times/Herald obtained an eight-page report circulated among Scott's transition team that shows the company's founder researched at least one of Scott's eventual hires.

So more documentation and work product could be out there. But where?
