A shining beacon of the consequences of electing Republicans in a swing state? S’not all bad. Sorry about your state getting buggered, Betty C.

If it’s any consolation, Scott would’ve been kicked out of the Legion of Doom for not only doing a shitty Lex Luthor impersonation, but for also being a complete and total fuckup.  I expect Republican officials to be dirty, it’s when they are shown to be two-bit shysters that pisses me off.  Nixon’s rolling in his illegal grave right now.

No one could have possibly foreseen!

From the MH:

After Scott said he would donate his goveror’s salary to charity, Wiles e-mailed transition director Enu Mainigi: “As discussed, that ‘charity’ is the governor’s staff salary pool. Is that still the plan? If so, need to tell Rick.”

I must admit I’m surprised the charity wasn’t The pRick Scott Needs a Lambo Fund.

Republican Party fundraiser John Rood, a former U.S. ambassador to the Bahamas, repeatedly impressed upon Wiles the importance of reaching out to the Board of Governors and State University System Chancellor Frank Brogan about influencing the board’s appointments for university trustees.

“Hope someone gets involved in process and we don’t put in democrats not loyal to governor,” Rood wrote.

Death Eaters Only! Muggles keep out!

“Hope someone gets involved in process and we don’t put in democrats not loyal to governor,” Rood wrote.

Another shitty Rick—in this case, the Perry stooge hoping to fuck up the rest of the country the way he’s fucked up Texas—had a similar scheme in place with Texas universities. He had university regents fired if they supported Kay Bailey Hutchison instead of him…

did the preliminary results of the “give Rick Scott’s former business a lot more money project” get covered already? if so, I’m sorry for the waste of electrons…

“Over 12 months, the money saved on all rejected applicants would add up to $40,800-$98,400 for the cash assistance program that state analysts have predicted will cost $178 million this fiscal year.

Actual savings will vary, however, since not all of the applicants denied benefits might have actually collected them for the full year. Under certain circumstances, applicants who failed their drug test can reapply for benefits after six months.

The as-yet uncalculated cost of staff hours and other resources that DCF has had to spend on implementing the program may wipe out most or all of the apparent savings, said Derek Newton, spokesman for the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida. The program will grow costlier yet, he said, if it draws a legal challenge.”
