That's right: Driving Rep. Katherine Harris (R-FL) around for her Florida campaign is a man thrice accused and twice convicted of embezzlement, the Miami Herald reports.
Bruce Carlton Jordan, now 42, was first accused of stealing from his employer in 1998, but paid back the $5,000 his coworkers said he'd taken.
In 2003, Jordan -- who's said to be a longtime friend of Harris', as well as of Florida GOP gubernatorial candidate Charlie Christ -- made over $6,500 worth of unauthorized purchases on a credit card belonging to the Florida Funeral Directors' Association, of which he was executive director. He also wrote himself nearly $3,500 in checks from the group's PAC.
In 2005, while on probation for those lapses in judgement, Jordan bamboozled over $3,000 out of his new employer, Florida Workers' Advocates, by abusing his boss' credit card, falsifying expense statements, and writing fake checks drawing on the organization's accounts.
Jordan now works as a volunteer on Harris' campaign, as her driver and "personal assistant," the paper reports. They did not confirm if he had access to the campaign's funds.
