TALLAHASSEE, FL – Attorney General Bill McCollum issued the following statement in response the Florida Supreme Court’s order convening a statewide grand jury on public corruption:
“Public officials should be held accountable for any illegal and dishonorable actions that violate the public's trust. They should adhere to a higher standard, not make a mockery of the offices with which they were entrusted."
“This statewide grand jury will work to suggest common sense changes that instill confidence and public trust. Our Statewide Prosecutor will work with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Florida’s State Attorneys to identify investigations and cases to bring before the grand jury. I am confident our work will have a significant impact.”
