FORT MYERS, Fla. - Tammy Hall's attorney says she spent more than 600 hours working undercover with the FBI. A federal judge called that work, candid, honest and timely.
"I personally have no problem with it," said Chairman Cecil Pendergrass.
Part of a plea agreement for less time behind bars, Hall agreed to work with agents after being accused of stealing $33,000 thousand in campaign donations.
"Was in a predicament she had to resolve personally so i think that's what she did," said Commissioner Larry Kiker.
Her Miami based attorney, Eric Padron, told the judge during sentencing that the work Tammy did was dangerous.
He said, "With the exception of carrying a gun and a badge, she has done everything an agent would be expected to do."
"I think in some cases, it might have been the right thing to do. it didn't make me mad at all," said Commissioner John Manning.
Those files won't be available any time soon, but the Lee County Commissioners we asked said they don't expect their names to be on the FBI's lists.
"I had no comment about it. It didn't really bother me at all. I conduct myself properly everyday at work, and know it didn't affect my office," said Pendergrass.
"Doesn't worry me. Doesn't worry me at all. Again, I have nothing to be afraid of," said Kiker.
"And I know for my part, I have been pretty straightforward over the years in my dealings with folks," said Manning.
