Former Hillsborough County attorney submits unemployment claim
Former Hillsborough County Attorney Renee Lee got a payout of roughly $150,000 when commissioners ousted her last month in exchange for going without a fight. That hasn't stopped her from seeking unemployment compensation, to which she may well be entitled. The county received notice June 20 -- less than three weeks after her contract was terminated -- from the state Agency for Workforce Innovation that Lee had submitted a claim. If approved, she would get $275 per week. Lee did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
