Cowan: I have no role in Lauren Book's campaign

Ex-Broward County Commissioner Scott Cowan who served a few months in jail in 2001 related to raiding his campaign funds says there isn't much to the gossip about him picking up a campaign packet for Lauren Book who is thinking about running for school board.

"My role in the campaign at this moment is zero,'' Cowan said. "I don't know if I will even be asked to do anything."

Cowan said he was at the Supervisor of Elections office this week on unrelated business so offered to pick up the packet for Book. Cowan and Lauren's father, lobbyist Ron Book, are longtime friends.
