Dems Ask House Speaker to Resign

December 3rd, 2008 by flanews

New House Speaker Ray Sansom is catching a lot of heat for his new job at Northwest Florida State College.

Last year Sansom steered 25 million state dollars to the school. Now the school is paying the high ranking Republican 110,000 dollars a year for part time work. The states Democratic Party is calling on Sansom to resign from the state legislature or quit his job at the college. Spokesman for the Florida Democrats Eric Jottkoff said Sansom is setting a bad example.

Hes making more money on the states budget and its ridiculous and thats why he should step down from one or both and show true leadership in this time of economic crisis. Show that hes making sacrifices such as not accepting this 110,000 dollar paycheck for the part time job with our taxpayer money, said Jottkoff.

Sansom fired back saying his focus is on the states needs, not partisan politics.
