Crist: College needs to return all Sansom money



Gov. Charlie Crist wants Northwest Florida State College to return the $310,000 it has already spent of the $6 million Rep. Ray Sansom secured for a now-abandoned airport project. "When money is taken in a way that's less than prudent, it ought to be given back. It's the people's money," Crist said.

The school trustees voted yesterday to give up the project, which led to grand jury indictments of Sansom and college president Bob Richburg, but said they hoped Crist would back off his demand they pay back what has been used. More context here.
