Ray Sansom resigns from Florida House of Representatives

It’s been 412 days since Ray Sansom resigned as Florida House Speaker after allegations that he had swapped millions of dollars funneled to Northwest Florida College for a job at the college. Since then, he’s been a member of the chamber without a committee assignment, facing ethics charges in the chamber and criminal charges in court. Rather than face a House hearing that would have started tomorrow, he resigned today. The St. Pete Times political blog has made Sansom’s resignation letter available for downloading.
