Scott says drug database foundation wasted moneyby Dara Kam | February 22nd, 2011
Gov. Rick Scott hasn’t changed his mind about scrapping the state’s drug database and now has more reasons for opposing it.
This morning, Scott accused the foundation that gathered the $500,000 in private donations to get the database up and running of possibly misspending some of the money.
“If you look at what’s happening there, I’m trying to figure out in that group where the money is. It’s come to my attention that thousands of dollars have been spent on lawyers, travel, meals for board members,” Scott told reporters after the Cabinet meeting. “I believe it’s an invasion of privacy. And right now with that database it appears that the money’s been wasted.”
We’re waiting for the governor’s office to provide the documentation supporting Scott’s accusations.
