Rick Scott's Company 'Solantic' to Make Millions due to His Exec Order to Drug Test FL's 168,000 State Employees

Scott knows he won't get re-elected.....so in the meantime he plans to rip off FL's taxpayers to the tune of $23.5 million a year.

According to Scott FL is in such dire straights that it can't afford to pay unemployment benefits.....yet it *can* afford to pay millions to Scott's company??

Where are the 'small government' & 'reduce spending' Teapartiers now?? Suspect

Why in the world did the voters vote for this scum bag. This is bizarre and if this goes through the public are plain stupid.

The ACLU is planning a court challenge--

They argue that Scott's overly broad order is Unconstitutional.

Someone in Florida should contact any "Shock Jocks" that your local radio runs and contact them. They just might get on the band wagon and run with this. In CA, we have John and Ken. I could just see them sending fake urine samples to Brown's office They did it with "toilet brushes" to Mayor Viilaraigosa in L.A. They have pulled numerous stunts and it seems to work well.
Could be a dumb idea, just think if you have a radio program with a huge audience, it might shut him up if he were to receive enough flack. It can be a show you dislike, but if they are entertainers and love the publicity, it is worth a shot.

Key West folks put together a 'communal urine sample' today.

You have a great idea Mags that the FL talk radio shows should be all over this criminal conflict of interest--millions will go directly from the FL taxpayers right into Scott's pockets.

I posted on Ellen's thread but forgot to post here--

Before taking office Rick Scott gifted his Solantic shares to his wife. Yeah that takes care of the conflict of interest. Not!!
