TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Faculty leaders are questioning Florida Gov. Rick Scott's motive for posting salaries of state university employees on a website.
    
They noted Wednesday that he did it while also doubting the value of liberal arts degrees and floating ideas about radical changes in tenure.
    
A spokesman for Scott said it's just part of the governor's commitment to open government.
    
United Faculty of Florida president Tom Auxter, though, said its part of a pattern of "attacking the faculty step by step."
    
Auxter said the spreadsheet showing salaries ranging from about $30,000 to $1.4 million is misleading.
    
He said that's because it lacks details and context.
    
Scott calls his website Florida has a Right to Know.
    
It also includes state employee salaries and pension data as well as budget information.
