Regarding the Florida Ethics Commission investigation of Lantana Mayor David Stewart:  

He has represented Lantana fairly and honestly for about 20 years.  

Under his tutelage as mayor, the town has grown and prospered without any hint of scandal or ethics violations.

Mayor Dave occasionally says earthy, witty or old-fashioned comments but he would absolutely never suggest sexual favors in exchange for a vote. 

He has been known to turn down offers for lunch or even a cup of coffee if this could be misconstrued as trying to sway a vote.

I hope the Florida Ethics Commission does a really thorough investigation of this accusation.
