No one was at the St. Petersburg Planned Parenthood Clinic cited this week in a state inspection. It is normally closed on Thursdays.

According to Politico Florida, Gov. Rick Scott's office reworded a news release from Florida Agency for Health Care Administration regulators that said fetal remains were not mishandled at Planned Parenthood clinics in Florida.

 The draft of the news release also mentioned the possibility of disciplinary action for doctors who worked at those clinics. As Politico's Christine Sexton reports, emails among the governor’s office, state regulators and Planned Parenthood reveal Scott’s top officials deleted that information from AHCA.
