Florida House Ethics Probe

Florida Legislature’s probe of Ray Sansom will proceed slowly

Sansom seeks delay in Fla. House ethics probe
The lawyer for former Florida House Speaker Ray Sansom denied on Friday all ethics accusations that a special investigator has made against his client.
Richard Coates also requested that a special House committee tasked with looking into the matter delay taking action until Sansom’s criminal charges are resolved, according to a letter sent to panel chairman Rep. Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton.
Sansom, R-Destin, is facing trial later this year on charges of official misconduct and perjury. He is accused of funneling millions to a state college that gave him a $110,000 job and lying to a grand jury.

Sansom wants panel to delay probe till after criminal trial
Ousted House Speaker Ray Sansom insists he did not misuse his position when he funneled tens of millions to a state college that later hired him, but he wants a legislative panel to delay its investigation until after his criminal trial.
“Rep. Sansom denies all of the probable cause allegations” outlined in a report by an investigator hired by the House, reads a letter delivered Friday to Rep. Bill Galvano, the Bradenton Republican who will oversee the tribunal.
The Destin Republican is scheduled to go to trial as early as Sept. 29 on felony charges stemming from a $6 million airport project he secured for Northwest Florida State College. A grand jury — and the House investigator — concluded that Sansom’s friend Jay Odom planned to use the hangar-like building to store aircraft as part of his private airport business.
