Emails on Scott’s Phone May Have Been Lost

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Newly released public records show that emails sent to a smartphone used by Gov. Rick Scott may have been lost.

Emails obtained by a media advocacy group show state law enforcement agencies tried in April to see if they could get emails stored on a Blackberry used by the governor.

Law enforcement officials turned to the Blackberry after it was discovered that emails on the governor’s personal iPad were accidentally deleted.

There was a push to get the emails written by Scott and members of his transition team because the private company handling email for the transition office shut down most of the accounts.

Scott in August ordered the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate the deletion of the transition emails and see whether they could be retrieved.
