Ethics complaint filed against Lt. Gov. Kottkamp



Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp's extensive taxpayer-funded travel over the past two years has attracted adverse publicity, and now Clearwater citizen activist David Plyer has filed a complaint with the Commission on Ethics. His complaint is based on news articles in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and St. Petersburg Times.

Plyer, who previously filed complaints against Rep. Ray Sansom and Hillsborough Supervisor of Elections Buddy Johnson, accuses Kottkamp of violating a state law that bars elected officials from "corruptly" attempting "to secure a special privilege, benefit or exemption for oneself." Read the Plyer complaint here.
