TV's Vasilinda gets all access to Gov. Rick Scott



Gov. Rick Scott invited Tallahassee reporters in for coffee and doughnuts Tuesday morning, as he continues his efforts to improve working relations with the press corps. But one reporter got special access: Long-time Tallahassee TV reporter Mike Vasilinda was allowed to sit in on meetings with Scott that are usually off-limits to members of the press. The veteran newsie said he has been seeking to "shadow" the governor since last January, when Scott took office. Among those scheduled to meet with Scott Tuesday: state Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda, D-Tallahassee -- the reporter's wife.
