Guess times are tough for lobbyists like Florida State Rep Franklin Sands (D-Lobbyist). In his latest campaign financial report, Mr. Sands, a registered lobbyist in Broward County, paid himself $1,469.00 for auto mileage.

You’d think Sands would save money by picking up contributions from his stepson’s lobbying firm LSN Partners and dropping off checks to the Pollara Group; LSN and Pollara share the same address.

The good news: Franklin can afford gas prices thanks to those checks from the gambling industry. We all know the gambling industry really cares about Broward school kids and teachers.

Franklin, you’re a real middle class champion!!!

Franklin Sands is running against Donna Korn for the district 8 seat on the Broward County School Board.
