Update: Sink ethics complaint filed by Crist, Jeb! appointee

by Dara Kam | June 29th, 2009

Jose Lorenzo, a Department of Education lawyer who filed an ethics complaint today against Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink for her use of the state plane, is an appointee of Republicans Gov. Charlie Crist and his predecessor Jeb Bush.

Bush appointed Lorenzo to the 2nd judicial circuit nomination commission in 2004. Crist reappointed him for another four-year term in September. Lorenzo is the chairman of the commission, which make recommendations for judicial appointments.

Lorenzo also contributed $550 in total to Bush and Crist since 2001, according to state elections records. His most recent contribution was a $50 check to Crist’s gubernatorial campaign in 2006.

Sink, a Democrat, is running for governor in 2010. Attorney General Bill McCollum, a Republican, is also in the race for the post.

Neither Crist nor Bush have officially endorsed McCollum – yet. But Bush is highlighting a fundraiser for McCollum at the Biltmore Hotel in Miami tomorrow night.

    This is not the only ethical problem for “Mrs. McBride”. Just wait until all her shenanigans are exposed. She has wasted more tax dollars in 2 years than all other Cabinet Officers combined!

    Any politician with an (R) behind their name no longer has any credibility with the public. And there is very little difference between Republicraps and Democraps!!!
