Although Rick Scott campaigned on job creation, the Rick Scott Blog Watch calls the governor "the Typhoid Mary to careers."

That's because of the exceptionally high turnover of his staff over the last two years.

Most recently, Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll gave notice after being questioned as part of a investigation into a $300 million charity fraud.

But Scott has hired three chiefs-of-staff in an 18-month period, and since taking office in January of 2011 accepted the resignations of eight agency heads, two general counsels, one policy advisor, and a communications director, as reported by Tampa Bay Times. At least 17 high-ranking staffers have left.

Whatever the case, there were several in Scott's office who jumped ship after only a few months despite six-figure salaries.
