Carlos Beruff does not have any abiding interest, education or training in the stewardship of our fish and game resources. He has no relevant experience other than contributions to former Governor Rick Scott.
“When he stood up, I was wondering if he was running back to the office to make nine or 10 more appointments.”
Scott appointed former U.S. Senate candidate Carlos Beruff, who’s already facing an ethics commission complaint.
Scott’s donors will pay at least $25,000 for a photo opportunity with Florida’s new U.S. senator.
A former deputy secretary in the Florida Department of Health speculates that officials delayed notifying well users because of the impending election.
Sources with ties to Scott say that he is looking at different options that would allow him finish his full second term as Florida’s 45th governor.
Rick Scott and cabinet will meet Nov. 20 by telephone, just hours after Scott and two Cabinet members will certify the results of the Nov. 6 elections, to approve the FPL power plant. FPL’s parent company has donated more then $1 million to Scott’s campaigns, and Scott owns as much as $500,000 in company stock.
Scott, despite his self-assurance, has not technically won the U.S. Senate seat yet. He may be the first candidate to ever attend an orientation as a senator-elect before actually being the senator-elect.
Scott repeated his allegations Sunday, without evidence, that fraud is behind the increase in votes for Nelson, saying he has asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to look into potential fraud. The department and the secretary of state have both previously said there is no evidence of fraud.
Scott’s Senate campaign is suing the Broward County elections supervisor and is ordering the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate elections offices in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
