TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --

The state Ethics Commission has found probable cause of financial disclosure violations by incoming Senate President Mike Haridopolos.

The panel announced its decision Wednesday, October 27. The Merritt Island Republican is accused of failing to fully disclose his financial
interests from 2004 through 2008. He now can seek a hearing on the
complaint.

Haridopolos admitted he made mistakes, but said they were
unintended and have been fixed. He is scheduled to become Senate
president next month if the GOP retains control of the chamber as
expected.

The commission also cleared incoming House Democratic Leader Ron
Saunders of Key West of a complaint that he submitted false travel
reimbursement requests to the state.
