Florida’s Governor Rick Scott having to resign as a CEO of Columbia/HCA in 1997, the company paid $1.7 billion in fines due to fraudulent billing practices with Medicare. Now Scott being a candidate for U.S. Senate is refusing to accept responsibility in court relating to that fraud case when he “invoked his Fifth Amendment right.”
End Citizens United goal is to oppose favoritism to the wealthy in any campaign and attempts to prevent wealthy people to influence on the election process. The group has pointed out that Scott has been using the New Republican Super PAC in preparation for his campaign. Ending the influence of Big Money in politics is the goal of End Citizens United and show that money has no political power in elections. So with Scott concluding his second term as Florida governor, watching his practices that offer any financial benefit is crucial. Read more about End Citizens United at Wikipedia.
In mid-April of 2018, American Bridge has reported that Rick Scott had received donations after his decisions on “state pension fund investments.” The Securities and Exchange Commission ruling is to protect decisions on investments from political influence, which resulting gives a reason for the charges against Scott from the End Citizens United. Rick Scott then announced running for a Democratic seat in Congress, but was unaware of the the complaint faced against him. Florida’s voters are not expected to “trust him” with his shady past, predicted by Adam Bozzi, the Communications Director of End Citizens United. He also expresses concerns for the violation of federal law and Scott is in need of immediate investigation.
Senator Nelson and Scott both represent a small section of the Republicans and hope to retain control of Congress under Trump. Senator Nelson comments and expects Scott to “say or do anything to get elected” for this election. He believes that doing the right lets politics “take care of itself.” For the election Scott is likely to spend millions of his personal funds for the election.
Just like a book, do not judge Fagali by its cover. The airport is not the most modernized airport. However, the single grass strip airport gets the job done. The once government-owned airport has a long history.
There are plenty of restaurants on Fagali, but there are a few that really stand out. One of those standouts is The Deck Restaurant. Relax in an outdoor setting and enjoy the view. The food is unbelievable and the service is top notch. Do not miss the pool next to the bar.
Spend some time immersed in the island’s culture. The Samoa Cultural Village gives visitors a chance to get a hands-on experience while learning about life in the village. Learn how to weave baskets or take a woodworking class. For those who would rather shop, there is a market. Visitors will leave with a greater sense of how the ancient people lived.
One of the hidden secrets that can be found when visiting Fagali is the Piula Cave Pool. This cave is hidden away off the beaten path of tourists according to radionz.co.nz. Take a swim in a freshwater pool. If you are brave enough, the pool leads into the cave. Make sure to have a waterproof flashlight to see the surroundings.
The best way to see Samoa is through an ecotour according to wikipedia.org. The Rainforest Runaway Ecotours will go to places that most visitors never get a chance to see. The local guide will take the group to hidden beaches and through beautiful forests.
Do not let the first sight of Fagali fool you. There is plenty to do and see while visiting. This will be a vacation that will not be forgotten.
