Carroll: Scott Runs State Like He Ran HCA

Gov. Rick Scott’s leadership of the state is similar to the way he ran the Columbia/HCA hospital chain, former allies told the Miami Herald

Former Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll says Scott has underlings “running the show,” and may deliberately remain in the dark on important issues so that he can “claim plausible deniability,” the Herald reports.  

Scott was never formally investigated or charged for his work at HCA, which after his ouster received a record $1.7 billion in Medicare fraud fines, according to the Herald.
