Cannon gives back RPOF cash, too



Several weeks ago, Senate President-designate Mike Haridopolos gave back the $294,000 he had stashed in his campaign committee in the chaos of former RPOF chairman Jim Greer's resignation. Well, now future House Speaker Dean Cannon has followed suit.

His committee reports that on March 15, two separate payments totaling $655,000 were returned to the party.

With that much money at stake, it seems the two lawmakers are satisfied with the current party leadership -- colleague John Thrasher.
