No, Rick Scott Was Not in Aspen for a Secret Koch Brothers Retreat This Weekend
Hangin' in Tallahassee
The Daily Kos' David Waldman is tweeting up a storm about major GOP donors (and someone on Rick Perry's "favorite plane") having a secret meeting at the Koch brothers' Aspen compound this weekend, and Gov. Rick Scott has taken his first three-day weekend since last September. After the "maybe he went, maybe he didn't" ambiguity of last summer's Koch retreat (yes, he went), I was expecting not to hear back when I called the governor's office.
But a spokeswoman called immediately. "No, he did not attend the meeting," she said. "He was in Florida all weekend."
