Integrity Florida defends its financial support from Koch Brothers-funded group

  • Ben Wilcox and Dan Krassner with Integrity Florida

In less than a year, Integrity Florida proved that there's a crying need for a good-government, nonpartisan organization in the Sunshine State.

Although a damning grand jury report published in December of 2010 revealed a wide scope of public corruption in Florida, it took Integrity Florida — more than a year later — to revive that document and call for major ethics reform in Tallahassee.

There have been consistently similar vital reports, so when it became public knowledge that Integrity Florida's most recent study — a take down on Enterprise Florida's contracting process — was sponsored by the Koch brothers-funded Americans For Prosperity, you can imagine the research institute's integrity took a blow.
