FL Gov. Scott divesting family shares of Solantic
A spokesman for Gov. Rick Scott said that the former healthcare executive is in the process of divesting his family's shares of Solantic, the urgent-care chain that Scott co-founded in 2001, to eliminate any perception of a conflict of interest. The news follows a Palm Beach Post story that detailed how the governor transferred his controlling interest in the clinic chain to his wife's trust shortly before he was inaugurated, meeting the letter of state ethics laws if not the intent. Rumors spread through Tallahassee and Twitter on Monday that a complaint had been filed against Scott with the Florida Commission on Ethics. But Scott spokesman Brian Burgess said neither he nor anyone in his office had seen a complaint.
