Clearwater man files complaint against Ray Sansom listen12/29/08 SeÃ¡n Kinane
WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
On the day he became the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives last month, Ray Sansom secured a high paying job at Northwest Florida State College. Sansom, a Republican from Destin, helped steer more than $25 million to the college earlier this year. Because of perceived conflicts of interest, several newspaper editorials have called for Sansom to resign from that $110,000 per year job or from the speaker position.
One Clearwater resident has taken the allegations to the Florida Commission on Ethics by filing a complaint. David Plyer told WMNF this morning that after reading newspaper articles about allegations against Sansom he wrote to the ethics commission earlier this month because he was â€œdisappointed and â€¦ didnâ€™t know what other course of action to take. ... Somebody reported on it and I thought Iâ€™d follow up on it.â€
Plyer has filed a complaint with the Florida Commission on Ethics about incoming Speaker of the House Ray Sansom.
