Ethics Commission finds probable cause for Kim Daniels’ dodgy financial disclosures

More financial ethics issues have emerged for Rep. Kim Daniels. And they could lead to action in the Florida House against the Jacksonville Democrat.

The Florida Ethics Commission found probable cause to believe that Daniels filed inaccurate Form 6s, representing financial disclosures for 2012, 2013, and 2014. Kim Daniels FEC investigation.

Daniels failed to list properties owned by her churches, which added up to $1,000,000 of undeclared assets. Indeed, her churches had multiple properties — “parsonages” in multiple cities, timeshares, and over a dozen cars.

Daniels, at that point, was serving her term on the Jacksonville City Council.

Daniels has faced similar scrutiny related to campaign finance before: the Florida Elections Commission found probable cause that Daniels spent campaign funds advertising one of her religious books, the Demon Dictionary, in a vanity-press publication called Shofar.

Daniels, a traveling evangelist, went through a rocky divorce earlier this decade, one which led to sensational allegations regarding her management of household and church finances.

Her 2016 financial disclosure revealed salary of roughly $200,000 from preaching and a net worth of just under $600,000.

Daniels could settle or could have an administrative hearing regarding these charges.

Daniels is not talking to Florida Politics about these matters. She did conduct an interview with Action News Jax recently, in which she vigorously denied the findings of the state commssions.
