DUPED: South Florida Doctors Use Con-Man In Everglades Push

The Martin County Health System has irreparably damaged their reputation by shacking up with convicted con-man Kenneth Hinkle

By Jacob Engels

Another day and another false line from special interests pushing the $2.4 billion dollar land grab by shady environmental groups and big government politicians in Tallahassee.

This time, several respected doctors decided to work with Bullsugar founder Kenneth Hinkle to say that SB10 is really about community and public health now.

Hinkle, as we have reported in the past, has a long list of crimes that include financial scheming, DUI, and more. How the Martin County Health system came to the conclusion that this man was a good face for their press conference is not known.

We have written about the shortcomings of Senator Joe Negron’s plan to purchase $2.4 billion dollars of land from Florida farmers in the past and this thing really is a billion dollar boondoggle. The farmers don’t even want to sell and the science behind the proposal is based on shoddy science.

Though Hinkle was intimately involved in the press conference held by Martin County Health System, he is omitted in nearly every report from the mainstream media.

Are they so determined to carry water for groups like the Everglades Foundation and Bullsugar that they are now covering up Hinkle’s relationship to this group of physicians? One has to wonder how much Hinkle pocketed in this latest caper, but it’s no doubt already been blown on cheap beer and gas station liquor.

The Florida Senate has another committee vote on SB10 next week, we will keep you posted.
