FORT LAUDERDALE (AP) - The mayor of Tamarac has become the latest Broward County public official to be charged with corruption.
Prosecutors say 57-year-old Beth Flansbaum-Talabisco accepted $21,000 in campaign contributions from developers in exchange for support for their housing projects. She is charged with bribery, official misconduct, conspiracy and unlawful compensation.
Flansbaum-Talabisco surrendered Wednesday at the Broward County jail and will be released on $9,000 bail. Court records did not indicate if she had a lawyer.
The two developers involved previously pleaded guilty to unlawful compensation charges. Their dealings have also resulted in corruption charges against two other Tamarac officials and two Broward County officials.
