Husband Of Former FL Sec. State Katherine Harris Dead From Apparent Suicide (VIDEO)
WFLA.com reports that the husband of former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris was found dead from an apparent suicide Tuesday morning. The man, Anders Ebbeson was 68 years-old, and apparently had been ill for some time.
Katherine Harris, a Republican, was thrust into the national spotlight and created a firestorm during the 2000 Presidential elections. As Florida Secretary of State she presided over the much maligned “Florida recounts” that she abruptly halted when one count reflected Bush had won 537 of Floridians votes – %0.0062 – thus handing all of Florida’s electoral votes and the keys to the White House to George W. Bush.
Harris later went on serve in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Sarasota Police Chief Bernadette DiPino said in a statement;
“We’re asking the community respect the family at this difficult time. Mrs. Harris wanted the community, her family and friends to know that her husband is no longer suffering.”
