Dems create 'Rick Scott Email Recovery Fund'



img-header-logo.pngThe Florida Democratic Party is attempting to leverage the flap over Republican Gov. Rick Scott's transition e-mails - a potential violation of public records law - into cash for the party.


"After months of dragging their feet on a public records request, the Governor’s Office finally dropped the bomb in the dead-of-night that these emails were 'accidentally' deleted," Democrats write in an e-mail to supporters today.

More from the e-mail:

Accident? Accident? This is the 21st century, one stop at any computer store could have solved this problem. The truth is this Governor has a proven pattern of lying to the public and has shown outright disdain for public records laws.

Help us hold this Governor accountable. Donate today to the Rick Scott Email Recovery Fund to help the Florida Democratic Party as we continue to investigate the case of the missing emails.

Floridians deserve answers and a Governor who tells the truth.
