Florida Republican's Sugar Daddy

 On a Friday in February 2013, Gov. Rick Scott stepped aboard a Texas-bound plane to take part in a secret ritual for Florida’s GOP. Scott was departing for historic King Ranch, one of North America’s premier hunting grounds. The trips, records indicate, were financed all or in part with contributions from Florida’s sugar industry, right down to the hunting licenses. here

Scott won’t answer questions about his trip. After weeks of requests from the Times/Herald. The urge to keep details about the trips confidential is so strong among Florida’s elected officials that Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam’s press secretary shut a door in the face of a reporter asking about King Ranch. “You’ll have to talk to the Republican Party of Florida, since it was their fundraiser,” Putnam said as the door closed.

Corruption In Hillsborough County

The federal government says Hillsborough County misused almost a million dollars in grants during its "Fight the Blight" campaign and it wants the money back. The inspector general of the Department of Housing and Urban Development released a scathing audit of the county's use of federal Community Development Block Grant money for these blighted areas. The audit shows serious problems in the department resulted in 
developers being helped by almost 
$1 million
 instead of low-income areas. 
The audit says code enforcement cleanups like 
the "Fight the Blight" programs in 2012 and 2013 
were actually misusing the federal money in surrounding areas not qualifying as low-income neighborhoods. The county used the money on areas that were "industrial and commercial properties," 
"farm and vacant land" that were "planned for development" and 
"new construction in residential properties. 
because commissioners wanted to ensure 
developers didn't have to pay 
impact fees.

Charlotte's Web Is A Sham

Politicians who sympathize with Amendment 2 should consider getting on their voters' level and leveling with us with at least half the passion that Rutherford and Bean put into advocating for the failed status quo. Amendment 2 will fail if its advocates continue to relinquish control of the narrative to those political lifers poised to benefit from things staying as they are, the phony Reagan-conservative wannabes who have stolen liberties for decades, under the cover of flag pins and security emergencies. here
