The FBI has subpoenaed a former aide to Ray Sansom to testify before a grand jury, according to the Northwest Florida Daily News.
The subpoena seeks documents, including travel records. The aide is Samantha Sullivan, who worked for Sansom for seven years he served n the Florida House. She now works for Rep. Matt Gaetz.
Sansom, R-Destin, had faced state corruption charges for a $6 million state appropriation that a developer wanted for an airport hangar. But the case was dropped in mid trial, with prosecutor Willie Meggs saying he could not proceed due to a judge limiting key witness testimony. The FBI has long been investigating aspects of Sansom's political life and association with the developer, Jay Odom.
