Some of the controversies related to Rick Scott
Before commencing his career as a businessman
Scott attended law school. In 1994, he opened a healthcare company and even got a reward for the same. Unfortunately, in the 1990s, there was a huge fraud case exposed on his healthcare company by the central authorities.
The condition got worse in 1997 when Rick had to resign from his position of CEO. In 2002, he had to pay 600 million dollars as a fine for being responsible for the biggest healthcare fraud in the history of the US.
His corruption did not stop here and went on for long
After the above happenings, again one of his care centres named Solantic got sued because there was a case registered against him for discriminating amongst his employees.
Rick’s Assistant Joshua Cooper also had some affairs and that contributed to the bad image of Scott as well. Namely, he was caught holding a large chunk of ice in front of a mannequin and it looked like the “ice penis”. Although he denied that to be true and that the angle of the photo is what’s causing the controversy, according to Scott Jason Cooper, getting out of this one is hard.
Rick is also very famous for breaking promises
As a senator and earlier as governor, he promised to put resources in the blind trust, which he never seemed to keep. On the contrary we could see from various reports that his net worth increased by almost 33.4 percent in his first year only as a senator. This clearly shows how he has been corrupting the nation.
To sum up
The list of Rick’s controversies and corruption is never ending. He has a very strong relationship with frauds. However, we cannot expect him to show integrity. But the thing that is in our hands is to expose his misdeeds to the public, so that they start thinking about their own interest instead of just getting manipulated just for votes. Afterall, what can we even expect from a person who has built his career based upon lies and frauds only.
