Gov. Rick Scott has failed to report more than $200 million in assets on his state financial disclosure form in violation of the Florida Constitution, Democratic attorney general candidate George Sheldon alleges in a lawsuit filed Wednesday. Sheldon, a former deputy attorney general under Bob Butterworth, is running against Republican Pam Bondi and discussed the lawsuit at a press conference in Tallahassee on Wednesday morning. His lawsuit, filed in Leon County just weeks before Election Day, accuses the governor of relying on a “web of complex financial arrangements” to shift investments and hide his “financial interests from public view.”
