The Record Delta Online: "Ross explains $750,000 vote at ethics hearing
CHARLESTON � Former state Sen. Mike Ross told a hearing examiner Tuesday he benefited no more than the 500 other members of a Harrison County country club when he voted to spend $750,000 in state funds to promote a golf tournament there.

�Mike Ross didn�t benefit. West Virginia benefited,� the Randolph County Democrat said.

But a lawyer for the state Ethics Commission argued the three-term lawmaker stands out at the Pete Dye Golf Club in Bridgeport."
