Ethics Commission drops another complaint against Maria Sachs

in Uncategorized by

A complaint against Sen. Maria Sachs for failing to include a $278,000 home she owns in The Villages on financial disclosure forms filed over a six-year period has been dismissed, the Florida Commission on Ethics said Wednesday.

The commission, meeting last week, ruled that Sachs has gone back and amended the forms filed between 2006 and 2011 and the “public interest would not be served by further proceedings.”

The complaint was filed by Kenya Nelson of Delray Beach, who could not be immediately reached for comment. 

The commission has already dropped another complaint over Sachs’ failure to report a Tallahassee condo she owns, when the senator went back and amended the forms on three years’ worth of disclosures.
