The WFLA-TV investigative team "discovered Hillsborough County's popular state attorney had borrowed thousands of dollars from employees in his office. During the investigation, we also discovered Harry Lee Coe, who was up for re-election to his third four-year term, was using his county computer to visit Internet gambling Web sites. When we asked to see Coe's computer records we were provided records that showed he had only visited two Web sites of any sort in the past year and a half. Our sources told us Coe had ordered subordinates to destroy public records showing Coe used his computer to visit the gambling Web sites."
