Haridopolos Kicks Off 2012 Senate Campaign By Pleading Guilty To Breaking Ethics Laws
Just days after returning from Washington D.C., where Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos essentially kicked off his U.S. Senate Campaign, Haridopolos today plead guilty to breaking Florida’s ethics laws. Florida Democratic Party spokesman Eric Jotkoff released the following statement:
“Everyone knows Mike Haridopolos has a problem with following the rules and arrogantly thinks he is above the law, but to kick off a U.S. Senate campaign while also pleading guilty to breaking the law is a new low even for Senate President Haridopolos.
“Over the past decade, Haridopolos’ career has been marred by his numerous ethical lapses, defined by his sweetheart deals that he personally profits from.
“To show Floridians he isn’t continuing to hide his income, Haridopolos today needs to immediately release his tax returns from the last four years in question to allow for public scrutiny and apologize to the people of Florida.”
