Fox News analyst Dick Morris is highly critical of Florida gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott, the former head of the scandal-plagued Columbia/HCA hospital chain.

In an exclusive Newsmax.TV interview, Dick Morris is warning voters that Scott is not the tea party candidate and can't be trusted.

Scott is vying against the popular conservative Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum for the GOP nomination for governor.

Story continues below.




Morris says that Scott, through his former company, "fleeced" money from the government.

Scott's company was charged with over $1.7 billion in fines after an FBI probe found it had committed the largest Medicare fraud in U.S. history.

Scott stepped down as the company's CEO after the federal investigation, but pocketed more than $300 million in company's profits.

Scott never was charged with a crime.

In Scott's campaign TV commercials, he says he accepts full responsibility for what happened during his watch at Columbia/HCA.

Morris argues that, if Scott couldn't be trusted in his role dealing with federal funds at his private hospital company, he shouldn't be entrusted to run the state of Florida.

Morris' endorsement of McCollum comes on the heels of other major endorsements McCollum has won, including those of Jeb Bush, Steve Forbes, and Dick Armey. Also, John Stemberger, who heads the Florida Family Council, the group associated with the Focus on the Family group founded by Dr. James Dobson, has personally endorsed McCollum.
