Crist Says Florida Gov. Scott’s Has No Integrity

MIAMI — Republican-turned-Democrat former Gov. Charlie Crist says Gov. Rick Scott has no integrity and his policies are driven by “the almighty dollar.”

Crist discussed his campaign to seek his old job with his new party during an hour-long interview Tuesday with The Associated Press.

Crist said Scott’s campaign has been dishonest. He also says the $73 million Scott spent to get elected four years ago was stolen from taxpayers.

Scott was the CEO of Columbia/HCA leading up to the hospital chain’s $1.7 billion fine for Medicaid fraud.

Crist also talked about the need for less standardized testing in schools, more alternative energy sources and the idea of trading with Cuba.
