The Naples Daily News reports about "... a web of corrupt dealings involving county commissioners, a defunct golf stadium development, county grants, the PGA Tour, a mob-linked stock house and our local state attorney... The deal seemed simple: County Commissioner John Norris steered control of the Naples Senior PGA golf tournament and $1 million in county grants to his Stadium Naples business partner in exchange for (a) stake. ... our locally elected state attorney - who declined to bring bribery charges related to ... Norris' stake in the Stadium Naples golf development in October 1998 - owned stock in a Stadium Naples partner company during his investigation." This investigation continued till 2000.
