Gov. Rick Scott HAS BEEN missing in action. While the governor spent five days in New York and bounced around the Florida Panhandle and Tampa Bay boasting about bringing new private sector jobs into the state, firestorms were breaking out all over state government. Yet the governor appeared unengaged, uninformed or uninterested in explaining the actions of his administration. Floridians deserve better. Consider the latest developments:

 Secretary of State Ken Detzner, who was appointed by Scott, inexplicably denied University of South Florida researchers permission to exhume bodies at the former Dozier School for Boys in Marianna. Detzner claimed he does not have the authority to grant permission, but his double-speak did not make sense. It’s unclear how many boys are buried at the now-closed school, and this smacks of avoiding a hot issue. The governor remained silent and absent.
