Lawmaker mum on expose of Rep. Jamie Grant's company

13

March

The non-denial denials continue on a WTSP-Ch. 10 report on a $2.6-million grant awarded in Hardee County to a company owned by Rep. Jamie Grant, R-Tampa.

We won’t rehash the details. For that, go here.

Grant has said he is reviewing his options about what to do, but said so far he hasn’t demanded a correction, usually the first-step taken in a defamation suit.

The other lawmaker involved in the project was Rep. Jason Brodeur, R-Sanford, who was paid between $48,000 and $65,000 for his work as a health consultant.

When asked Tuesday about the story, Brodeur declined comment.

“I’d prefer not to say anything because there may be pending litigation,” he said.

Is it a dodge or a sign that Grant and Brodeur will sue?

Time will tell....
