Palm Beach County state attorney candidate Dave Aronberg — known a year ago as "Florida's drug czar" — received almost $14,000 in campaign contributions, directly and indirectly, from a medical and lawyer referral service in February 2012 ... at the same time Aronberg's boss was investigating that service for deceptive and unfair trade practices.

In addition, Sunshine State News has obtained a copy of a letter from the Florida Commission on Ethics, dated Oct. 16, to one Shawn Hanlon, alerting him that an ethics complaint he filed against Aronberg in August "has been found sufficient for investigation and has been forwarded to the Investigative Section of the Commission on Ethics." This, despite the fact that Aronberg reportedly told the editorial board of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that Hanlon's complaint has been dismissed.

The revelations are the latest in a series of scandals that have riddled the former state senator's Democratic campaign for the position of state attorney of the 15th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, which covers Palm Beach County.
