ABC’s political reporter defended Rick Scott today, it only took a year to come up with the same garbage as he did 4 years ago.
Point being, Scott was in charge of the company while it was overcharging Medicare, he bailed just before the feds started their investigation!
Scoff did plead the 5th, 75 times in a court of law so there must have been a reason?
He knew that he would not be able to plead in federal court because it is not allowed?
Florida Gov. Rick Scott on issues of trust and credibility on a subject that was used repeatedly to pummel Scott in the 2010 campaign.
The ad uses still numerous frames of Scott from a 2000 deposition in which he invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination 75 times.
Here’s the ad text:
That’s now many times Rick Scott took the fifth to avoid incriminating himself while his company was under investigation by the FBI.
Scott’s company pled guilty, fined nearly 2 billion dollars for Medicare fraud.
Taxpayers got cheated, while he walked away with millions.
Now we find out Scott’s office steered billions in state contracts to contributors.
Medicare fraud. Contracts to contributors.
Taking the fifth 75 times.
We just can’t trust Rick Scott.”
Nothing in the ad is not true so what’s the problem ABC?
