Group Asks Governor For Sansom Investigation

January 6th, 2009 by flanews

A government watchdog group took out a full page newspaper ad asking Governor Charlie Crist to launch an investigation into House Speaker Ray Sansom’s dealings with a college in his district.

Sansom took an administration job with Northwest Florida State College after helping the school secure 25 million state dollars. Yesterday Sansom resigned his position with the school, but admitted no wrongdoing. Crist applauded the move and said he won’t call for an investigation.

“I think the speaker did the right thing yesterday when he resigned the position at the college, and I’m sure it was difficult, but I respect his decision,” said Crist.

While the governor won’t call for an investigation a complaint has been filed with the state’s commission on ethics.
