Tallahassee, FL (AP) - A judge has refused to dismiss charges
against former Florida House Speaker Ray Sansom and two
co-defendants who had accused a prosecutor of misconduct.
Circuit Judge Terry Lewis on Tuesday also declined to remove
State Attorney Willie Meggs from the case but did reprimand him for
making inflammatory public statements and sarcastic comments to a
grand jury.
Sansom, a Destin Republican, is facing grand theft and other
charges for allegedly slipping a $6 million appropriation into the
state budget to build an airport hangar for use by a political
supporter.
The money was allocated to Northwest Florida State College for
what was listed as a joint use emergency management facility. The
school later gave Sansom a $110,000 job.
