It's Friday, which means its another day in Florida to protest Rick Scott; Latino activist throws race into the mix of the David Armijo HART suspension, and GE made $14 billion last year, and paid NO taxes: Mitch Perry Report 3.25.11

Happy Friday to you all.

The week began with the stunning decision by the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit agency to suspend with pay their CEO, David Armijo for 2 weeks, as a labor attorney investigates charges of wrongdoing.  Now a Latino activist says race is an issue in the suspension.

There will be a brand new Tampa City Council beginning next week, and one of their first decisions will be to resolved something the outgoing Council deadlocked on yesterday - whether to have red light cameras installed in 20 intersections in Tampa.

Hillsborough County may soon be enacting an anti-tethering ordinance for dogs, based on the tenacity of one animal rights activist.

Activists in Tampa plan on protesting against the Florida GOP agenda this afternoon, while Rick Scott protests were held yesterday, today, and another one is scheduled next week at Tropicana Field.

And a little outrage to take you into the weekend: General Electric made over $14 billion last year, over $5 billion in the U.S., and paid NO taxes.
