Governor Rick "Let's Get To Work" Scott has skipped out on his job altogether to take yet another taxpayer funded vacation to London disguised as a trip to promote trade and tourism in Florida.
Now, you might say to yourself, it's good to promote tourism since it's pretty much responsible for the entire state's economy, and you would be right.
But these are not normal times in Florida.
There are now a total of 276 cases of the Zika virus in Florida, with 13 new cases reported today, and then there's that little matter of green toxic algae laden sludge turning Florida waterways into sewers killing fish, driving people from their homes and chasing tourists away in droves where it's spreading.
So at a time when the British Pound is down thanks to the BREXIT vote, Rick Scott is over there convincing people to spend what they have left in Florida amid several public health crisis' that Rick Scott is ignoring back home.
Never mind that Florida residents and business owners are suffering from massive algae blooms and paying for it while Rick Scott, Marco Rubio, and other politicians in Florida keep lining their pockets with sugar cash from the polluters in order to turn a blind eye while they regulate (wink, wink) themselves.
Never mind that Floridians voted on an environmental Amendment to fix this very problem a couple years ago that Scott and the GOP are ignoring.
Never mind that Republicans in Congress refuse to pass Zika funding President Obama asked for months ago while Scott points the finger elsewhere as he also signed a law blocking Zika research.
Nope. Scott isn't interested in doing anything about public health threats.
He's just selling his snake oil overseas now too. Just add it to the taxpayer tab.
Because in Florida, when the going gets tough, Florida's Governor gets gone.
