Ethics Complaint Filed Against Leon County Commissioner

There’s an election year ethics complaint against a Leon County commissioner, and it's his fall opponent making the charge.

Anthony Davis accuses District 5 Commissioner Bob Rackleff of using the county Web site and his office to advocate the group Florida Alliance.

It opposes petroleum pipelines. Rackleff says he has worked for the company as a consultant but has committed no wrongdoing.

“I'm confident the commission will find no violation, I've committed none and I look forward to serving the people of Leon County,” Rackleff explains.

The Commission on Ethics will determine if the allegations are legally sufficient, or whether any violation was committed.
