Mitch Needelman arrested on bribery, tampering charges

Former Clerk of Courts and Florida Rep. Mitch Needelman was arrested this morning on charges of bribery, bid tampering and official misconduct.

The charges come at the end of a yearlong investigation by the state attorney’s office and Florida Department of Law Enforcement into allegations that Needleman got campaign kickbacks from a company that was awarded an $8.53 million contract to scan court documents.
