Domestic Violence Coalition CEO Skips House Hearing

March 12th, 2020 by Mike Vasilinda

The former CEO of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence failed to appear to answer questions Thursday over the $7.5 million she took from the organization over the last three years.

The House is moving to hold her in contempt, a procedure that could eventually send her to jail until she answers questions.

The committee chairman said the committee will keep meeting through May, calling witnesses and looking at documents.

“I’m a firm believer that you can’t pass a law to make people who won’t follow the law, follow the law. But we can put guidelines in to make sure that we limit the availability of anybody to do this to us again,” said Rep. Tom Leek.

The committee was also told the US Attorney has convened a Federal Grand Jury to investigate the use of Federal money that flowed through the coalition.
