Sansom: I will be cleared

House Speaker Ray Sansom just announced:

"Effective immediately, I have decided to recuse myself from the exercise of my duties as Speaker of the House of Representatives. Ongoing legal proceedings have temporarily created an inability for me to carry out my responsibilities as Speaker.  Under the House rules, during this temporary inability, Speaker pro tempore Larry Cretul will exercise all the duties, powers and prerogatives of Speaker.

I know Larry will manage the House with distinction and it will be an honor for me to serve under him at this time, until any legal proceedings I face are resolved. The allegations and reports associated with these proceedings have caused my family grave pain and this has prompted my decision. I expect positive outcomes and am confident that when the facts are known, my honesty and integrity will be confirmed."

Just another crook in Florida. Like Crist and the legislature incarcerating more than 100,000 Florida citizens for campaign contributions from the PBA and the CCA, Aramark, etc. Graft has trumped freedom for Floridians, and created a huge gulag and police state, embarassing on a world stage in the "land of the free"
