Description

Sun-Sentinel reporters found Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp were using government planes for personal travel. In two years, more than half the trips taken were between the lieutenant governor's home and the capital. In two years, Kottkamp "billed taxpayers" nearly $425,000 to finance the flights.
