Winner and losers of the week in Fla politics



Winner of the week: Justin Sayfie. The lobbyist/news aggregator put together what we hear was a top-notch debut of the Sayfie Summit, a sort of Florida-focused version of the World Economic Forum held annually in Davos, Switzerland.

Losers of the week: Pam Bondi. Showing extraordinary hubris and/or hypocrisy, the attorney general decided she would postpone an execution rather than inconvenience donors planning on attending her re-election fundraiser the same day.

Rick Scott's Department of Health. Apparently it's time to scrap the agency's official mission — "To protect, promote & improve the health of all people in Florida" — since it refuses to let federal Obamacare "navigators" into DOH offices to help eligible Floridians obtain health insurance.
