TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The state ethics commission says Florida's multi-millionaire Governor is doing no wrong by investing millions in companies that might profit off decisions he makes while in office.
The reason: Rick Scott's investments are in a blind trust, which means brokers handle his investments without consulting him.
Scott says he always thought his investments were on the up and up, but it was good to get a second opinion.
"I'm glad that they did that. As you know I'm trying to do everything the right way and organize all my business investments that way; so I'm glad that they did. I believe that was doing the right thing when they did that," said Gov. Rick Scott.
"The Ethics Commission" didn't take into account Scott's 60-million dollar investment in "Solantic", the health care clinic Scott co-founded, because he is selling his shares.
