How much did community college earn from $152k Haridopolos book? $488
After Senate President Mike Haridopolos recently said his unusual book deal with Brevard Community College would earn the school some money, the liberal group Progress Florida took that as a challenge. It asked Brevard how much revenue has been produced by Florida Legislative History and Processes. Grand total: $487.90.
That leaves about $151,512 left before Haridopolos book pays off.
