Associated Press Release

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The state's ethics commission says five current and former Florida legislators did not properly disclose their finances.

The Florida Commission on Ethics reported Wednesday it found probable cause that the legislators did not correctly disclose their income and assets on an annual form.

The commission found that Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Delray Beach, did not disclose a condominium she owned and also failed to list the money she earned as a legislator. The commission also found that Reps. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, and Janet Adkins, R-Fernandina Beach, did not correctly fill out their forms.

Two former legislators -- Sen. Ronda Storms, R-Valrico and Sen. Stephen Wise, R-Jacksonville -- also did not properly disclose their finances.

The commission says it won't take any further action because lawmakers amended their forms.
