Two more Dems apply to replace Gallagher

Two more individuals sent applications to Gov. Charlie Crist to apply for an interim appointment to the Broward School Board to replace suspended member Bev Gallagher.

The new applicants as of today were Sallie B. Tillman-Watson, who works in the field of tax consulting, and Veda Bailey, an AIDS educator.

Crist is not expected to appoint anyone to replace Gallagher or suspended county commissioner Josephus Eggelletion this week. Both politicians were suspended last week amid separate federal corruption probes.

At the county, it's unclear if FBI agents have expanded their probe beyond Eggelletion and the county's transportation department -- the only offices where federal officials have paid a visit. Officials who work at the county's aviation department, Port Everglades, purchasing, and construction management say that they have not been questioned by the FBI.
