TALLAHASSEE - Election year complaints contending that Charlie Crist and former Gov. Rick Scott broke campaign finance laws are getting thrown out.
Public records at the Florida Elections Commission show that the commission rejected two complaints filed this spring by Republican Party of Florida executive director Justin Johnson. Both were deemed legally insufficient by commission officials.
The complaints centered on billboards and television ads paid by the Morgan & Morgan law firm that included Crist. The former governor is running as a Democrat.
Complaints filed by Florida Democratic Party chairwoman Allison Tant against Scott and his political committee Let's Get to Work were also thrown out. Records on that one, however, show that lawyers for both the party and Scott argued over whether there was grounds to reject it.
