Another Major Medicaid Scandal for Rick Scott


The Daily Kos has the article Another Major Medicaid Scandal for Rick Scott.  The article puts together two quotes from an another article.  First is the quote:

Before Fernandez, an individual had never given a check of $1 million or more to a candidate-aligned committee.

The second quote from the article is:

Two companies partly owned by the finance chairman of Gov. Rick Scott’s re-election campaign [Miguel Fernandez] have won contracts worth potentially billions to serve Medicaid patients in regions across the state.

The trajectory for honest government in Florida goes downhill from there in The Daily Kos article.

Brings to mind what I have been reading in Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates’ autobiography.  As he would sit before a Congressional committee and listen to the Representatives or Senators rail against the corruption and the inability to take action in Iraq and Afghanistan, Gates would wonder if they thought the US government of which they were a part were doing much better than Iraq and Afghanistan.

This example in Florida would be good to compare to the corruption of the warlords and governors of areas of Iraq and Afghanistan.
