You might visit him in jail. Big story here in Florida, updates on the trial every day. Was convicted about two months ago.

Hiya Darla,
After some further investigating, I think I found a pretty good treasure trove of information on this. Send your browser to www.orlandosentinel.com , then click on the left side “Archives”. Full text of any article costs $1.95 but you shouldn’t need it. This search gives you the headline and lead paragraph of each article. If you search like I specify, you will have a fairly good chronology of the whole affair. Where it asks for the search string enter (without quotes) “william mccorkle”, have it “display 100 articles”, “from oldest to newest”, and “all years”. It will find 96 articles in all. The first 30 or so are from 1987-1988 about his unsuccessful bid to the Altamonte Springs city commission. Includes bouncing checks, not paying for campaign material, not filing required documents and so forth. A rascal from way back, I see. The first mention of his current troubles starts with a 1996 article about the FL attorney general filing charges… then moves into the federal case against him. Includes possible witness tampering… money laundering and all kinds of goodies!!

Well, I was reading along day to day in the Sun-Sentinel (Ft. Lauderdale local paper). You could certainly head on over to www.sun-sentinel.com and get the archives… only problem is they charge for them. You might try the Orlando Sentinel web page, since it’s closer to the action up there. Sorry I don’t know the URL. Happy searching. If all else fails… I could possibly scan the articles I cut out into JPGs and send them along to you, provided I can still locate them.
