News Americas, MIAMI, FL, Tues. August 28, 2018: A Caribbean island was trending yesterday but for all the wrong reasons.

The Cayman Islands found itself trending on Twitter Monday afternoon – and it wasn’t for its great beaches, natural beauty or iguana meat exports.

Ahead of the Florida Primary Elections on August 28th, The Tampa Bay Times/Miami Herald reported that Florida Governor’s Rick and his wife Ann Scott’s financial trail leads to the island, a tax haven for many of the world’s wealthy.

The news comes as Scott seeks to become the Republican candidate to unseat Democratic Senator Bill Nelson this November. The Times/Herald report shows that the Scotts portfolio includes earnings last year of at least $2.9 million in two dozen hedge funds registered in the Cayman Islands.

The report, quoting the financial disclosure statement Scott filed last month as a U.S. Senate candidate, said the investments had a minimum total value of $25 million and a potential value of $62 million.

A campaign spokesperson, Lauren Schenone insisted “the governor had no role in selecting that investment.”

Scott’s assets total a reported $255 million.

Many slammed the governor and senatorial candidate on Twitter. Among them was Peter Stanley who tweeted: “Cayman Islands. Rick Scott is a pathetic individual and … a criminal. JAIL SOON.”
