American Bridge savages Rick Scott appointees' scandals and controversies

@MarcACaputo

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.
