Florida's Culture Of Corruption: Big Sugar

The sugar industry has an edge over supporters of a plan to buy land to reduce Lake Okeechobee discharges, at least when it comes to the money both sides spent in political contributions in the 2016 election cycle.  Florida's sugar growers gave more than 
$11.5 million 
to campaigns and political committees since the end of 2014. Compare that to 
 from board members and top employees at the Everglades Foundation and Everglades Trust. here
