Acquitted commissioner no longer suspended

Florida Governor Rick Scott restores Tamarac commissioner Patricia Atkins-Grad

Headline Goes Here

TAMARAC, Fla. - Florida. Gov. Rick Scott issued an executive order revoking the suspension of Tamarac commissioner Patricia Atkins-Grad, who was acquitted of bribery charges earlier this month.

Atkins-Grad was suspended in June 2010 when she was charged with six felony counts, including two counts of bribery. She was acquitted of all charges on Dec. 11th.

Scott issued an executive order reinstating Atkins-Grad on Wednesday.

It's unclear if Atkins-Grad will return as a Tamarac commissioner.
