Times editorial: Kendrick Meek owes voters an explanation in developer mess

in Statewide by

The Times’ editorial board fires a warning shot at Kendrick Meek:

U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek has some explaining to do. The Miami Democrat sought millions of federal dollars for a developer who paid his mother tens of thousands of dollars and helped one of his top aides buy a house. Meek denies any wrongdoing, but his explanations are not comforting. The U.S. Senate candidate is either clueless or worse, and more investigation is warranted.
