From where Senate President Don Gaetz hails…

If you are looking for a reason why Senate President Don Gaetz is so interested in ethics reform, read his own words from his swearing-in ceremony:

“In my medium-sized north Florida county, a commissioner was just removed for official misconduct, the TDC director committed suicide after he stole bed tax and BP money, the Speaker of the House was forced to resign, the Tax Collector was run out of office, our college president was fired and our sheriff is in federal prison.

That’s just my county.”

That is from where Don Gaetz hails.

This could be a very interesting two years.
