Does the face look familiar?
It belongs to Rick Scott who, as former chief executive of then Louisville-based Columbia/HCA, pledged a million dollars to the University of Louisville football program toward a new football stadium in the early nineties.
Scott never made good on his pledge, actually moving the company out of town a few months later, a few steps ahead of an FBI investigation of the company’s involvement in the largest Medicare and Medicaid fraud in history.
Well, surprise. Scott is now running for the governor’s office in Florida, and is actually leading in a recent poll. Florida voters should be wary of any campaign promises.
