Crist overhauls hospital board in Broward

Gov. Charlie Crist has ousted two who sought re-appointment to the scandal-plagued North Broward Hospital District board: Dan Gordon and Robert Bernstein. Also gone are Maureen Jaeger (who had left for a job with Sen. George LeMieux) and Rebecca Stoll.

The new appointees include some familiar faces in Republican circles including Clarence McKee, who is active in Broward's GOP and Joel Gustafson, a former state representative who worked in the past for U.S. Rep. Clay Shaw. The other two are Jennifer O'Flannery Anderson, who has served as president of the United Way in Broward, and Richard Paul-Hus, who lost a crowded state legislative race to Ellyn Bogdanoff in 2003.

Commissioner Joe Cobo, who has faced accusations of conflicts of interest, is under investigation by Broward prosecutors. He has denied wrongdoing and remains on the board.
