FDLE Clears Rick Scott in Transition-Records Case
A Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) investigation that Gov. Rick Scott requested himself is over -- clearing the governor and his transition team of wrongdoing in the loss of transition team documents.
In a Wednesday evening press release from the governor's office, Press Secretary Lane Wright said FDLE found nothing criminal related to the loss of data from a transition email server. The Scott administration, he said, cooperated fully with FDLE, going to exhaustive lengths to help recover more than 33,000 pages of emails and transition documents once thought to be lost.
Said Wright, "By casting the widest possible net and using cutting-edge technology, the transition team, in cooperation with FDLE investigators, ultimately produced the most comprehensive collection of gubernatorial transition documents in Florida history."
