TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Two Republican legislator-lawyers are representing one of Gov. Charlie Crist's GOP campaign contributors in a public records lawsuit against him.
Reps. Tom Grady of Naples and Matt Gaetz of Fort Walton Beach sued Thursday for former Ambassador to the Bahamas John Rood in state court in Tallahassee.
They allege Crist failed to comply with Rood's request for records showing he has made policy shifts since leaving the Republican Party to run for the U.S. Senate as an independent. The governor's office says it cannot find what Rood's looking for.
Rood also has sued seeking to force Crist to refund $7.5 million in contributions he collected before quitting the GOP, but a judge in Naples has denied class action certification.
