“We received a complaint. We’ll review that. We’ll investigate it,” said assistant state attorney Tim Donnelly on Friday.

Editor’s Note: Would that be this complaint or that complaint?

That line above was from our buddy, the most awesome’ess Sun-Sentinel reporter Susannah Bryan story about Hallandale Beach Commissioner Bill Julian’s continuing tale of woe.

From her piece:

The Broward State Attorney’s Office is investigating longtime city commissioner Bill Julian after an audiotape surfaced that implied he may have been offered favors from a developer in exchange for a “yes” vote on a development project at the Diplomat golf course.

On the recording, Julian appears to tell someone that the developer’s attorney, Debbie Orshefsky, promised to get him 300 campaign workers to help him keep his seat in the Nov. 8 election. The recording, obtained by Ch. 10 reporter Bob Norman, was aired on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

The recording also captured Julian, 64, saying the developer had made a secret offer to get a van for the Hallandale Food Pantry, one of his pet charities.

“We received a complaint. We’ll review that. We’ll investigate it,” said assistant state attorney Tim Donnelly on Friday.
