He inexplicably since he is from Sarasota joined Representative Jason Fischer of Jacksonville and called for an audit of the Duval County school board, widely considered payback for their tacit thus far support of a lawsuit against HB 7069, the public school kneecapping bill crafted in secrecy and passed on the last day of the legislative session.
Perhaps Gruters should be worrying about his own ethical challenges. From the Sarasota Herald:
Gruters wants Strand’s clients to stay with the Gruters firm and, for most, the only thing they know about Gruters’ CPA abilities is that Strand said they share the same values, etc. So, mentioning the jail thing? Not a helpful topic.
Basically, Gruters buys a client list for another CPA who's been jailed, calls the transaction a "merger" when it's not, and perpetuates a lie about the other CPA's crime by omitting information and not taking clients' calls, then is his spare time he calls for an audit of DCPS a school district hundreds of miles away that he doesn't represent, in an attempt to bully them. Liars and bullies are what makes up a large swath of Tallahassee which is dominated by republicans. Isn't it past time we got ethical people who care about public education to represent us?
