Welcome to Florida: Rick Scott Woos Cancer Treatment Business Accused of "Quackery"

With great fanfare, Gov. Rick Scott last month announced the latest trophy in his campaign to get corporate America to relocate to Florida. Infelicitously calling it a "one-way ticket to the Sunshine State," Scott hailed the Boca Raton arrival of Cancer Treatment Centers of America and the "more than 200 new jobs" the governor says it will create.

We've heard governors bloviate about biotech jobs before. Maybe this time will be different. Even if it is, there's reason to be queasy about Scott's latest BFF.
