Second-quarter reporting is at $344,983 for legislative, $334,984 for executive, for a total of $679,967 — more than $100,000 less than Q1 and over $1.3 million off the Q2 high of $2 million in 2013. Granted, the new rules ban double reporting for legislative and executive compensation, so all figures will be somewhat off — but $1.3 million is way, way off.
In addition to revenue, Tsamoutales also dropped a person in the second quarter, now pushing a four-person lobbying team led by founder and President Frank Tsamoutales, with Haridopolos and consultants Amy Bisceglia and Sarah Sanders.
Tsamoutales’ biggest payday once again was Gainesville shopping center and mall operator/developer Butler Enterprises, with two huge $125,000 checks, one for legislative services, and another for executive.
Next comes Tampa-based interior door manufacturer Masonite Corporation, which provided up to $29,999 each for legislative and executive services.
At the $10,000 to $19,999 level is a trio of companies, each providing checks for legislative and executive lobbying: communications and information technology company Harris Corporation, International Speedway Corporation and lab and drug testing giant Quest Diagnostics, Inc.
