Rick Scott Sued Over No Lt. Gov. Decision

One Tallahassee lobbyist has now filed a lawsuit against Governor Rick Scott for not appointing a replacement for Carroll.

Barbara DeVane says Rick Scott is breaking state law for not appointing a new lieutenant Governor.

“He has to follow the state statutes and the state constitution which says upon vacancy of the lieutenant governor he shall, not may, he shall appoint a successor,” said DeVane.

The Governor’s communications office has said Rick Scott is going to take the proper time to find the right person to fill the vacancy.
