TALLAHASSEE — Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a wealthy former businessman who put up millions of his money to help his two campaigns, is refusing to hand over detailed financial information that could answer whether he is violating a state ethics law.
Court filings show lawyers hired privately by Scott are vigorously fighting a request to turn over information on trust accounts maintained by Scott and his wife, first lady Ann Scott. Sheldon's attorney is also seeking information on a financial adviser handling Scott's money.
SECTION 8. Ethics in government.—A public office is a public trust. The people shall have the right to secure and sustain that trust against abuse. To assure this right:
(a) All elected constitutional officers and candidates for such offices and, as may be determined by law, other public officers, candidates, and employees shall file full and public disclosure of their financial interests.

Why is he still in office ?
What is this country coming to. Hes just buying time to falsify records to show a legitimate source for his bribes.
Why is there no one to enforce this, he should have been kicked out of office immediately.
The Scotts reported adjusted gross income of $9.3-million in 2010, $80.3 million in 2011 and $8.7 million in 2012. They paid about $16 million in taxes over the three-year period. They reported a capital gain of $75.8 million in 2011, but the asset is not disclosed.
