Write to me, Scott tells workers: 'I don't have email'



Gov. Rick Scott visited the Department of Elder Affairs Tuesday and spoke for 20 minutes to about 200 employees who packed a conference room. At the end of his talk, the governor who wants to run the state "like a business" asked people with suggestions to write a letter and send it to the Capitol through the U.S. Postal Service -- because he doesn't use email. 

In 2011.

"If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me, I don't have e-mail," Scott said. "It's easier if I never get e-mailed. I get embarrassed by it that way. It's not as easy to communicate," Scott said. "Have a great day."

Yet the governor tweets, but doesn't do email? What's with that?
