Where had that half a million dollars come from?
According to Governor Rick Scott’s campaign, they made an ‘accounting error’ when that amount magically disappeared from the books. It is a ‘mistake’ they said.
The mysterious $500,000 was associated with the re-election campaign of Florida’s Governor.
Florida Crystals, a leading sugar producer founded by one of the state’s politically prominent families, reported to have given $500,0000 to a political organization set up to help the Scott’s campaign.
Florida public utilities have too much power
“The corrupting influence of money in politics is the defining issue of our time,” says Dan Krassner, executive director of Integrity Florida. “We have a legislature that is not broken, it’s bought.”
The report says that the four companies spent more than $12 million lobbying members of the Legislature between 2007 and 2013, and have contributed more than $18 million to state-level candidates and party organizations between the 2004 and 2012 election cycles.
