Bob Graham has a few words of warning for Rick Scott
Do newspapers still matter?

Is Rick Scott's wife going to profit from his health care policies?

Rscott079 Palm Beach Post reporter Stacey Singer has raised some interesting questions about Florida  Gov. Rick Scott's financial relationship with Solantic - the urgent care firm that became a hot topic during the election.

From Singer's story:

Solantic co-founder Karen Bowling says Scott has taken steps to distance himself from the chain. He stopped regular business calls with her after he was elected.

"I don't talk to him anymore. Not since November. Really not much since April," Bowling said.

Scott left the privately held company's board of directors in January 2010, during his campaign.

But the most important step the governor must take to avoid a conflict of interest, some ethics experts say, is to divest his Solantic interests.

In January, Scott did transfer his Solantic stock - to his wife.

Singer does a good job of exploring the conflict-of-interest question in her story.
