The desperate attempt to knee-cap our Governor in his first year in office continues unabated. The St. Pete Times has a story up and just take a look at these two paragraphs:
As a defendant in at least seven lawsuits since he took office in January, [Governor Rick] Scott could be the most sued governor in Florida history. And [Charles] Trippe [Governor Scott's general counsel] now finds himself deep in cases relating to election law, drug testing of state employees, redistricting and prison privatization.
Some speculate the avalanche of lawsuits involving Scott has more to do with dislike of the governor than his actions related to the legislation or policies in question.
Yeah, I'm sure some Democrats do speculate on *their* dislike of the Governor. Other Floridians may see through the opaque machinations of political partisans, however, and transparently recognize the shaping hand of a media hell-bent on hammering home an unflattering image of this Governor. Those "other" Floridians will not likely obsess on the Governor's supposed status as a disliked Chief Executive but will take note that (boy, oh boy!) the media sure does hate him . . . and given that fact, they are likely to conclude that he can't be all bad.
He's being sued because he's shaking the tree, making some bold decisions, and upsetting some very special interests.
As I said previously, given those facts, he can't be all bad.
