Rick Scott uses taxpayer money to pay for campaign appearances

From The Tampa Tribune, 03/26/2014:

Even before the event happens, Florida Democrats are saying Gov. Rick Scott is again blurring the lines between campaigning and governing, and is using taxpayer money to pay for campaign appearances, with a forum at a Tampa high school today.

From the Miami Herald, 05/15/2014:

Democrats slapped Gov. Rick Scott with three ethics and election law complaints Thursday, accusing him of violating state law by not fully reporting his campaign’s use of an aircraft owned by a company in his wife’s name.

The complaints follow a Herald/Times report last month that Scott’s campaign did not disclose expenditures for use of the Cessna Citation Excel jet that has taken him all over the country on dozens of fundraising and campaign events since he officially became a candidate for re-election in December.
