WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:
St. Petersburg City Council member Jamie Bennett, who is running for Mayor, fired his campaign manager last week. Peter Schorsch was let go by Bennett for distributing a solicitation for campaign contributions in the same folder with two tickets to the City’s suite for a Tampa Bay Rays game. The St. Petersburg Times reported over the weekend that Schorsch alleges that he and Bennett conspired to influence community leaders with free tickets. But Bennett denies knowing that Schorsch included tickets with campaign material. WMNF spoke with Bennett this morning.
