Rick Scott is no stranger to allegations of fraud after the issues that he faced as the Chief Executive Officer of Columbia/HCA. In 1997, he resigned from the company after being charged with fraud involving Medicare and the company was forced to pay $1.7 billion in fines after the FBI found that they were engaging in fraudulent billing practices. Currently, Rick Scott is facing allegations concerning how he is raising funds for his run in his race for the US Senate from the PAC End Citizens United.

Rick Scott is the former Chairman of the New Republican PAC, but End Citizens United claims that he may still be highly involved with the super PAC and is receiving money that was funneled through the organization that they claim was supposed to be for the use of the presidential campaign. According to American Bridge, the New Republican PAC received money “private equity executives” based on decisions that Rick Scott made on “state pension fund investments”. In 2010, the Securities and Exchange Commission made a rule prohibiting the campaigns of public officials from receiving funding from financial firms if they had made decisions that had an influence on state pension investments. The firms in question made more than $3 million from the fees concerning the Florida investments that were affected by Rick Scott’s decisions. End Citizens United based their charges against Rick Scott based on the ruling made by the Securities and Exchange Commission. End Citizens United believes Rick Scott is breaking the law for his benefit.
End Citizens United was established in 2012 after the decision made in 2010 concerning Citizens United. They believe that while campaign financing has always had its fair share of issues, big money is becoming a more and more prevalent aspect of every passing campaign. When Citizens United was able to eventually win their fight in the Supreme Court in order to not have to disclose where donations came from, many people were crying foul. The PAC, which is currently located in Washington D.C, is working to make sure that campaign financing laws are reformed as to be fair and honest to everyone involved.

George Soros has the funds that will enable democrats to be able to recover from the presidential loss. He wants to make sure that his money will help the people who are a part of the political party and this is something that he has worked hard to be able to do in the time that he has been helping out the democrats. He wants to make sure that all democrats have the chance to be able to succeed. George Soros knows that a democratic success will ensure that people are able to keep the rights that they have worked so hard for.
Democratic success means a lot for the people of the United States. The democrats are responsible for a lot of things that people take for granted in the United States. George Soros helped women gain the right to vote, helped ensure that people of color were treated with the respect that they deserve and even helped gay people have the right to get married. Without democrats, a lot of the rights that Americans have would simply not exist and would end up being a problem for a lot of the people in the country.
It is not hard for people to see the way that things will change under republican rule. While people may not necessarily lose the rights that the democrats have gotten for them, they certainly will not have the chance to be able to move forward with new rights for each of the people who have already had them. Anyone who has looked for different rights should make sure that they are doing more in the country that they are in.
The United States was intended to be a melting pot. Since the time that the country first started, people were welcomed with open arms. This is one of the first times in the history of the United States that people are not being welcomed into the country. The refugees are refused from the United States. This is something that is republican doing and something that most democrats would not have anything to do with. The democrats, with the help of George Soros, would make sure that refugees had a place in the United States like they are supposed to be able to have.
With a republican president, the democrats are going to begin to struggle. The republicans are going to take over the government and the democrats need to make sure that they are prepared to make things better for their lives. This is something that they have feared for a long time and something that is going to come true in the coming months with a president that is as extremely right as the current president-elect is. Democrats need to be prepared to fight for their rights.
