Governor Rick Scott recently warned Florida’s seaports that they could lose critical state funding if they make any shipping deals with Cuba. He later told reporters: “I don’t believe any port in our state, none of them, should be doing business with a brutal dictator.” These would be stirring words if they didn’t reek with hypocrisy.
