Did Florida Gubernatorial Candidate Rick Scott Profit From Porn?

WINTER PARK, Fla. — from www.wesh.com – A new political ad accuses Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott of connections to the pornography industry.

The new ad is from the Florida First Initiative, a group that is maintained in part by Scott’s Republican rival, Bill McCollum, state records show.

The group’s goal is to spend money to get McCollum elected.

“There’s nothing Republican about ripping off taxpayers,” the ad said.

The claim refers to Scott’s position as founder of the Columbia-HCA hospital chain.

The company was convicted of fraud and forces to pay $1.7 billion in the largest-ever case of Medicare and Medicaid fraud.

Scott was forced to resign before the government ended its investigation, and was therefore not penalized.

Scott did receive a $300 million payment from his board of directors, and was in charge of the company when it was breaking the law, the timing of the investigation shows.

What’s unclear is whether or not Scott knew crimes were taking place on his watch.

The political ad also claims, “There’s nothing Republican about profiting from porn.”

Rick Scott has substantial financial investments in a company that works with an arm of Playboy magazine, records show.

Quepasa is a company with offices in West Palm Beach that runs a social networking site targeting Latinos.

According to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission in June, Scott owns 13.8 percent of Quepasa — 2 million shares worth between $6 million and $8 million dollars, with an option on another million shares.

Quepasa has a partnership with Playboy Mexico to have Quepasa’s online community help feature and vote for “Cyber Chicas,” women interested in posing for Playboy Mexico.

The online version of Playboy Mexico alone features dozens of photos of nude women posing in an erotic fashion.

Scott is promoting a business with strong Hispanic connections at the same time he is supporting the Arizona immigration law that’s viewed by critics to be an attempt to racially profile and arrest illegal immigrants from Mexico.

“There’s nothing Republican about pocketing Obama millions,” the ad said.

Rick Scott did not “pocket Obama millions,” but he did make money as a result of federal stimulus money, SEC filings show.

The filings show Scott owns stock and has “investment control” in a telecom company called X-Fone.

A subsidiary of that company received more than $63 million dollars in grants and long-term loans from the Department of Agriculture.

According to a company press release in March, the CEO of X-Fone credits a tripling in the value of company stock to that federal stimulus money.

Scott has been a major critic of handing out federal government recovery money.
