The Florida Alliance for Retired Americans is asking the State Attorney in Tallahassee to investigate the governor's decision to erase voice messages from a south Florida nursing home.
Fourteen residents at the Hollywood Hills Rehabilitation Center died after the air conditioning failed during Hurricane Irma, and Barbara DeVane says calls from the home to Rick Scott's number were sent to voice mail.
"Why did he give out his phone number if he wasn't going to answer the urgent calls from the nursing home?" she asked. "We deserve a governor that will pick up the phone."
An attorney for the alliance claims those voice messages were public records and Scott had no right to destroy them.
The governor's office says they're not public record, so he acted within his authority.
