Maybe the National Republican Senatorial Committee shouldn't have trusted this guy to handle their campaign spending.

Apparently crooked Florida Sen. Rick Scott has been blowing through millions meant for Republican Senate candidates, and some in his party are starting to make some noise about it:

A number of Republican strategists and consultants are growing increasingly dismayed about millions of dollars vanishing at the National Republican Senatorial Committee — just when the funds are needed most, The Washington Post reported Friday.

Cash at the national campaign fund is dwindling as candidates head into the final stretch of Senate races across the U.S.

“If they were a corporation, the CEO would be fired,” a national Republican consultant working on Senate races told the newspaper, referring to the committee.

“There needs to be an audit or investigation because we’re not gonna take the Senate now and this money has been squandered,” added the consultant, who spoke to the outlet on condition of anonymity. “It’s a rip-off.”

Here's more from American Bridge's Pat Dennis who did a deep dive into Scott's spending on Twitter.
