• Democrats say Gov. Scott campaign broke fundraising law

    Updated:

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The head of the Florida Democratic Party contends that the campaign of Gov. Rick Scott is breaking the state's campaign finance law.

    Allison Tant on Monday filed a complaint against both Gov. Rick Scott and his political committee Let's Get to Work.

    The complaint maintains that the campaign broke the law when the Scott campaign transferred $27 million from one type of campaign account to another earlier this month.

    If the governor's campaign were found to have violated the law, it could be subject to a fine worth as much as $82.1 million or three times the amount of the contribution.

    John French, the chairman of Let's Get to Work, said last week the movement of the money was legal.

    The complaint was filed with the Florida Elections Commission.
