Tuberculosis Outbreak Was Charlie Crist's Problem Before It Was Rick Scott's

Holy wrongful gotcha, Batman! Seems the story of Jacksonville's tuberculosis outbreak was Gov. Charlie Crist's problem before it was Rick Scott's.

Check out this video. Stacey Singer, the reporter who broke the TB story for The Palm Beach Post, talks with Current TV's Cenk Uyger on The Young Turks.

Singer emphasized that the outbreak dates back to a schizophrenic patient in a homeless shelter who went untreated during 2008, and although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention knew hed passed it on to others then, the Florida Department of Health chose not to tell the public.

Singer says 80 percent of the residents in the dorm-style hostel tested positive, leaving 18 sick and two dead. She said of the Crist-era authorities, Their rationale was that it was not in the general population, they said. Of course, they were wrong.

Shouldn't we be asking Charlie to do a little 'splainin' of his own?
