The last time the Governor traveled overseas, Scott created an international incident when he told the King of Spain a personal story about his own recent trip to the African nation. “I’ve ridden elephants, I’ve never tried to shoot one,” Scott told the monarch, before going on – and on – about the trip. The exchange got wide play in Spain, where the king had been lampooned for the embarrassing secret hunting trip.
Fast forward to today when Scott, on an economic development mission to Colombia, found himself in an awkward spot when it was announced that his economic development czar had resigned. Talk about bad timing.
It’s beginning to seem like every time Rick Scott leaves the state, something odd occurs.
Governor Clampett might be better off sticking close to Tallahassee.
