FLORIDA ELECTION COMMISSION GENERAL COUNSEL RECOMMENDS FINDING PROBABLE CAUSE ON TWO VIOLATIONS BY FAILED COUNTY COMMISSION CANDIDATE RANDY BRUNSON
RANDY BRUNSON, FAILED CANDIDATE FOR COUNTY COMMISSION -- FEC GC WROTE THAT HIS VIOLATIONS WERE "WILLFUL," RECOMMENDING PROBABLE CAUSE FINDINGS ON TWO VIOLATIONS OF FLORIDA'S "WHO GAVE IT/WHO GOT IT" ELECTION LAW
In an October 2, 2008 memorandum received here Friday, Florida Elections Commission (FEC) General Counsel Charles Finkel recommended that the FEC find that RANDY BRUNSON committed two "willful" violations of Florida's election laws -- one for not reporting an in=kind contribution from hotelier KANTIBHAI PATEL and a second for accepting a contribution over the legal limit. Both violations involve the RANDY BRUNSON FOR COUNTY COMMISSION headquarters, which was located at 1800 North Ponce de Leon Blvd. (today occupied by a scooter dealer/renter business).
Mr. Finkel's reasoned and documented report is in the highest traditions of government service, seeking to vindicate Florida's "Who Gave It/Who Got It" law.
On December 1, 2008, FEC makes public the Commission's findings.
