Times editorial page joins with Tribune in calling for Renee Lee to be sacked


A day before the Board of Hillsborough County Commissioners are to potentially decide her fate, testimony from a recent deposition given by Kevin White has hit the local press - and the disgraced former commissioner is casting his friend and former colleague - County Attorney Renee Lee - as somewhat of a stalker.

The soap opera is relevant to public policy as the county is suing White to have him pay up the more than $400,000 that taxpayers spent defending him in his lawsuit against his former aide in his sexual harassment lawsuit - with White countersuing.

The news drops on the same day that the St. Petersburg Times editorial page has declared that Lee should be fired, joining in with a similarly stated opinion days ago by the Tampa Tribune.
