House dismisses rules complaint against Saunders

An rules complaint against state Rep. Ron Saunders, a leading Democrat from Key West, was dismissed by the House Rules Chairman Bill Galvano this week.

Tea Party activist James K. Barnes filed the rules complaint and two ethics complaints against Saunders earlier this month.

Galvano said the complaint was insufficient because it wasn't made under oath, didn't meet time limits and provided inadequate evidence.
