TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The state Ethics Commission has found probable cause of financial disclosure violations by incoming Senate President Mike Haridopolos.
The panel announced its decision Wednesday. The Merritt Island Republican is accused of failing to fully disclose his financial interests from 2004 through 2008. He now can seek a hearing on the complaint.
Haridoplos did not immediately return a call seeking comment. He is scheduled to become Senate president next month if the GOP retains control of the chamber as expected.
The commission also cleared incoming House Democratic Leader Ron Saunders of Key West of a complaint that he submitted false travel reimbursement requests to the state.
