LeMieux buys $895,000 home in Broward

From the Sun-Sentinel: U.S. Sen. George LeMieux is planting himself in Lighthouse Point, with the purchase a couple weeks ago of an $895,000 home. It's assessed for taxes at only $525,540 -- that number would be approximately 80 percent of the market value based on sales on that neighborhood -- which means the LeMieuxs paid more than the established market value for this palace. It is relatively new; the five-bedroom, 4,321-square-foot home was built in 2008.

LeMieux and his wife, Meike, have three sons and a newborn daughter. Gov. Charlie Crist appointed LeMieux, who grew up in Coral Springs in Broward, to the Senate seat vacated by Mel Martinez. What will his next career move be? He hasn't said.
