The Chairwoman of the Florida Democratic Party is calling for a federal investigation into House Speaker Ray Sansom’s role in a six million dollar airport deal.
Last year Sansom steered 25 million dollars to Northwest Florida State College, six million was use to build an airplane hanger. On the day he was sworn in as speaker, the college hired Sansom to a 110-thousand dollar part time job. Democratic Party Spokesman Eric Jotkoff said the speaker should give up one of his positions.
“This is one of the most clear cut cases of quid pro quo corruption that we’ve seen in a long time and it’s only appropriate that federal authorities step in and look at this case,” said Jotkoff.
The embattled speaker remains silent on the issue.
