A: Yes, correct. And it involved substance abuse.
The following questions are being asked of Campbell:
Q: Would you provide the police report that led to probation with the Florida Bar to the people of Tallahassee?
Q: How was it that you were able to get a job in the State Attorney’s office in 2001 just 2 days after passing the Florida Bar exam but having a penalty of a 1 year delayed admission plus 3 years of probation from the Florida Bar?
Q: Can you explain how other candidates whom had much more qualified records, higher bar exam scores, and were not on probation got the job in the State Attorney’s office?

Q: Why didn’t you disclose to the voters the full police report that led to the Florida Bar probation?
Q: Do you think that it is ethical to list yourself as an Assistant State Attorney on LinkedIN in 2001-2002 when you were not even admitted to the Florida Bar yet? Were you really an ASA even though you had not been admitted to the Florida Bar yet? If so how is that legal?
You have been campaigning telling everyone that you have 15 years of experience as an ASA from 2001 to 2016, why did you misrepresent this to the voters as you were not allowed to practice law from 2001-2002?
