    Citrus County got absolutely screwed by Duke Energy.  Duke decided that their property tax bill was too high and said "we'll see you in court" to Citrus County, which was suddenly left to scramble to replace $16 million in tax revenue per year.  A good governor would have gotten involved and had a public confrontation with Duke Energy's CEO.  He could have easily threatened to appoint a few Citrus County Commissioners to the state board that oversees the public utilities.  Instead, Scott flew off to spend time with the Kochs in Colorado, and appointed a bunch of patsies to the board.
