Ethics Commish: Riley Must Drop Realtors



The Florida Ethics Commission Friday upheld its staff advisory opinion that Nancy Riley, candidate for state House district 50, shouldn't simultaneously hold elected office and serve as president of the Florida Association of Realtors (see Buzz posting from Thursday below).

Riley's attorney Mark Herron, however, isn't convinced. He suggested afterward that his client may appeal the decision to state District Court.
