TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The FBI wants to see former Florida House Speaker Ray Sansom's office records, including travel documents.
Subpoenas last week were served on the offices of the speaker in Tallahassee and Sansom's House successor, Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz, in Shalimar.
A former Sansom staffer, now working, for Gaetz, also has been called to testify before a federal grand jury on June 21 in Pensacola.
The FBI has been interested in Sansom, a Destin Republican, for an investigation into lavish spending of Republican Party of Florida funds by GOP leaders.
Sansom resigned as speaker and then from the House following allegations he disguised a $6 million appropriation to build an airplane hangar for a political supporter.
Criminal charges were dropped after Sansom and two others each agreed to pay $100,000 in restitution.
