Jeb Bush Upset About Scott Firing Staffers

Posted on August 27, 2011 by


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Just-released emails show that former Gov. Jeb Bush was disappointed that Gov. Rick Scott fired the mother of an Army soldier who had just been killed in Afghanistan and others who worked in the governor’s office.

Bush’s comments were included in more than 700 pages of emails released Friday evening by an attorney who worked on Scott’s transition team. The new emails were recovered from Scott’s campaign manager and give insights into those trying to influence Scott.

Scott last week ordered an investigation into why the email accounts were shut down in January and why the public records were deleted.

Bush questioned why Scott’s transition team had fired three women he pointed out were African-American, non-political and good workers.
