Florida Senate President Paid $152K In Taxpayer Funds For Never-Published Book
Mike Haridopolos, President of the Florida Senate who will seek the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in 2012, was given $152,000 out of taxpayer funds for a book that was never published (h/t Political Wire). The book was for Brevard Community College, with the sexy title, Florida Legislative History and Processes. And why wasn’t it published?
The book also doesn’t come close to meeting the original contract’s call for a publishable, textbook-quality look at the development of the Florida Legislature, state constitution, the governor’s office and judiciary from pre-statehood until present. But college officials say the book, mostly Haridopolos’ advice on running for office, is useful and will soon be distributed to students.
Nice work if you can get it.
