Did Broward sheriff break the law? Ethics panel finds probable cause


The Florida Commission on Ethics said is has found probable cause to believe Broward Sheriff Scott Israel broke state ethics laws on two counts by failing to report two gifts from a campaign donor, the Sun Sentinel reports.

At issue were a yacht cruise and a post-election yacht party, both hosted by Orlando-based road builder Robert Pereira of Middlesex Corp., a campaign supporter of the sheriff's. State ethics prosecutors said Israel should have reported both as gifts. Under state law, he's required to report gifts valued over $100.
