Sansom Investigation Continues

March 26th, 2009 by flanews

A Grand Jury will call witnesses and subpoena documents in its investigation of former House Speaker Ray Sansom.

Sansom is being investigated after he took a six figure job with a college in his district months after he steered 25 million dollars to the school. Sansom quit the job and was ousted as speaker. The Leon County Grand Jury investigating the case reconvened today to discuss the case. State Attorney Willie Meggs expects the Jury to make a decision soon.

I dont think its going to go that long. Im hoping well accomplish a lot in our next session in April and if not Im fairly confident that well come to a conclusion in our position in May because their term ends in June, said Meggs.

Complaints against the former speaker have also been filed with the state ethics commission.
