The Florida ethics commision makes me vomit

The state of Florida’s ethics commission proved they had no understanding of the meaning of the word ethics when they said Representative Eric Fresen didn’t violate them when he voted for House Bill 7195. House bill 7195 greatly expanded the privileges given to charter schools and Fresen’s brother in law operates charter schools (his sister also works for them). He didn’t disclose this until 9 days after the vote and then only after the Miami Herald did a story on it.

How is this not an ethics violation? At the very least he should have revealed his family members stood to profit greatly and disqualified himself.

With this obvious disregard for what is right, the deck is stacked against public education.

Only in Florida is this not an ethics violation. Only in Florida.
