Dean Cannon's 6-day, $364k fundraising binge

Boy, did we miss this. House Speaker Dean Cannon's new political committee, Florida Freedom Council, pulled in $364,500 in just one week before the start of session. The Capitol Press Corps can't complain because some of the money was used to purchase Press Skit tickets, clearly a political manuever that ensured freedom in Florida for the "council."
