Subject: Why won’t Miami official pay his fine?
State Rep. Erik Fresen is trying to cut a deal with the state Ethics Commission to basically let him off the hook for numerous violations of Florida law.
Fresen has admitted that from 2008-11 he didn’t properly disclose his net worth, assets and liabilities on financial disclosure forms as he was legally required to do. Fresen has also refused to pay a $1,500 fine levied by the Florida Commission on Ethics way back in 2004 for campaign law violations he committed in 2003.
Join me and sign the petition to the Florida Commission on Ethics urging them to hold Miami Representative Fresen accountable for violating Florida law:
Fresen owes not only a fine but an explanation to his constituents about why he considers himself, as a lawmaker, to be above the law.
Commissioners will revisit this issue next month, so make sure they hear from you today.
Thanks for your help in holding Rep. Fresen accountable.
