This article suggests that the recipients knew they received these "illegal" funds. But, the Consent Order makes it clear that it was Welcare that made it all happen. From a recipients point of view, there was no way they could have known unless they were specifically told. Sensationalism at its best. Thanks Gary.

Thanks for your comment. The item posted clearly states that there is no indication that any of the elected officials knew the contributions were illegal.

Even more problematic are the perfectly legal, yet suspect contributions passed through committees of continuous existence. Florida law allows interest groups to make donations to these CCEs which pass on the funds directly to Florida legislators, even when legislation involving these entities is being considered by the legislature.

Keep up the heat, Gary!
