shrug-l: Google earth accuracy estimate?

Hi-  A year or so there was SHRUG exchange of 'bad' google earth examples.
Does anyone know of an accuracy estimate for Florida?  We receive point
location data from many different sources but more and more data are coming
in with Google Earth as the source of the location (lat/long).   We need to
be able to say what locational uncertainty those data have.   How 'off'
could a point be, plotted on Google Earth vs. Florida aerial ortho imagery?
Thanks for any information-
