Greg Blair, spokesman for Rick Scott for Florida, said in a statement Wednesday, “As recommended by the ethics commission and unanimously approved by the Legislature, Gov. Scott put his assets in a blind trust to prevent even the appearance of any conflict of interest.

“This is the course CFO Alex Sink took as well. Gov. Scott will always operate in full compliance with the law.”
