I've never heard of this website, just stumbled across the story today.

http://freakoutnation.com/2011/08/28/2-of-welfare-recipients-failed-rick-scotts-welfare-drug-tests-tests-to-cost-state-millions/



The highly unfavorable governor of Florida, Rick Scott, whose self interests outweigh his constituents just got owned. Scott initiated a new drug test for the welfare program where the recipient of benefits would have to go through a drug test before getting aid. The results are in on the first batch of tests.

You would have thought after the hanging Chad year, Florida would have methods in place to recall their votes!
Currently we can do nothing... There is no recall legislation for Floridians.
Scott won by the slimmest margin ~61k votes when only 40% turned out....only a couple K less Rubio.
Our Gov Scott is now covering up and claiming his old CEO oops

"It's criminal, no?"
Yes definitely.

If it's true, I see it as much more serious than one foot washing the other.

It's criminal, no?

>"his wife who owns/owned a large portion of the drug testing company can foot the bill for the state"<

One hand washing the other. Funny how that works. :smileymad:

I could have told him that the positive results were going to be minimal. What a bozo.
