Grand Jury Investigates

February 24th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

A Leon County Grand Jury spent part of the day listening to prosecutors describe the business dealings of soon to be former House Speaker Ray Sansom.

Samson is being investigated for taking a six figure job with Northwest Florida College after funneling more than 25 million dollars to the hometown college, helping the college trustees meet out of the sunshine, and for funding a six million dollar airplane hanger through the college for a contributor.

Sansom was sacked as House Speaker by his colleagues after he tried to step down temporarily. A new Speaker will be sworn in when lawmakers begin their annual session on March 3rd.
