Crist Vows to Fight Corruption among elected officials

November 4th, 2009 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist is vowing to stop political corruption among elected officials.

Crist meet with state prosecutors today to discuss the problem. The indictment of Floridas former House Speaker opened up the corruption conversation. Crist says since he took office in 2007, hes spent a lot of time replacing corrupt politicians.

After being in office, I guess its now 34 months, but replacing about 30 people because of allegations or actually convictions, you know enough is enough and I think it was time to engage a grand jury and I hopeful the Supreme Court will act on it, said Crist.

In Mid-October Crist asked the Florida Supreme Court to empanel a statewide grand jury to investigate a host of allegations including, bribery, prostitution and drug use among elected officials.
