A jury on Friday convicted South Bay City Commissioner Shirley Turner-Walker of violating the state’s Sunshine Law, possibly setting the stage for her removal from office twice for the same offense.

John Tupps, a spokesman for Gov. Rick Scott, declined comment on what the verdict might mean for Turner-Walker’s political future. “We are award of the situation and we are reviewing it,” he said.

Scott suspended Turner-Walker, 65, from office shortly after she and two other commissioners were charged in December with privately agreeing to approve a $25,139 payment to former City Manager Corey Alston for unused vacation time. Scott revoked the suspension in May after she won a special election for a City Commission seat.
