Democratic gubernatorial candidate and former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham has paid Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s office $1,200 for public records related to 14 nursing home patient deaths after Hurricane Irma.
Graham wrote the check Monday at the Office of Open Government.
She told reporters her goal is to get copies of voicemails staff at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills left for Scott after the facility lost power.READ MORE: Second-Largest Solar Roof In South Florida Capable Of Providing 100% Of Energy Needs For Building
She might be disappointed. Scott’s office has already said the voicemails were deleted and has previously released records detailing communication between the nursing home and his office.
Scott’s office said the records Graham requested will be posted online “soon.” They’ll be available to anyone.
Graham is one of four major Democrats seeking Scott’s seat. Scott leaves office next January.MORE NEWS: The Turtle Hospital Celebrates Earth Day, And Saving Turtles, Every Day Of The Year
