Is it three strikes and she’s out for State Sen. Maria Sachs?
Sachs is now dealing with her third ethics complaint in a month.
On Tuesday, Sachs was hit with yet another ethics complaint. This time its for failing to disclosure the ownership of a home in the Marion County development The Villages.
It was the senator’s second complaint in a week.
Last week a complaint was filed against Sachs, D-Delray Beach, for lying about her residency. The complaint alleged she claimed to live in a Fort Lauderdale apartment, but really lived in a home outside her Senate district.
The twin complaints follow June’s action by the state Ethics Commission finding probable cause to believe Sachs failed to disclose on her required financial disclosure forms the ownership of a Tallahassee condo and some of her income over three years.
Commissioners noted that Sachs amended the forms before they heard the case and thus took no action.
According to the latest complaint filed on Tuesday, Sachs left her ownership of a home in The Villages near Ocala off her state required financial disclosure form for at least four years.
The complaint was filed by Kenya Nelson of Delray Beach.
