He, as governor, has and will not pay a penny in court cost, we the taxpayers are footing the bill to the tune of $700,000, plus $55,000, plus, In both cases, not only were settlements reached using tax dollars, but attorney’s fees were also paid using tax dollars.
The governor paid $165,000 and $139,000 for outside council in the two cases; with cabinet members paying another $225,000 according to documents posted online. Because of media attention, Scott’s office has started posting open records requests on its website. Figures for payouts are detailed in a series of requests from media outlets across the state.
