Gov. Rick Scott’s office announced Wednesday that Florida has hired outside counsel to file suit over what has been called the largest flop in the history of state job incentives — $20 million for Digital Domain in St. Lucie County.

The company’s former head, Jupiter Island entrepreneur John Textor, saw a political dimension to the announcement, according to The Palm Beach Post.

“It sounds like the Governor hasn’t read his own report,” Textor said. “The State IG Report clearly states that Digital Domain was fully vetted by Enterprise Florida and the Legislative Budget Commission, and properly approved for funding. Given the timing, this is clearly an election ploy targeted at the Crist administration.”
