Rick Scott Receives Campaign Cash from a Private Prison CEO Who Locks Up Immigrants

From Mother Jones, 07/18/2014, and the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting, 07/25/2014:

Florida Governor Rick Scott really knows how to pick a fundraiser. Last month, he was scheduled to attend a $10,000-a-plate event at the home of a real estate developer who’d done prison time on tax charges. Hours after Mother Jones disclosed the event, Scott canceled it.

Now, on July 21, Scott will headline a $10,000 per person fundraiser at the Boca Raton home of another deep pocketed donor who is the CEO of a private prison company that’s profiting handsomely over the immigration crisis at the Mexican border.
