ACLU: Missing e-mails an 'ongoing saga' for Scott administration

The ACLU of Florida Executive Director Howard Simon reacts to our story (read it here) about Gov. Rick Scott's transition e-mails:

The reports that Governor Scott’s transition team deleted email accounts which contained public records are just the latest chapter in the Scott administration’s ongoing saga of disregard for the constitutional requirement of open government.

Time and again, the Scott administration has violated the public trust with its disdain for transparency. Now, with public records that the law requires be kept potentially being deleted, the public trust isn’t all that may have been violated.

We are disappointed, but not surprised, that once again this administration has let down Floridians who expect transparency, openness, and honesty from their government.
