The Florida’s Commission on Ethics as well as the state’s Human Relations Commission investigate Corey’s role in the firing of whistleblower Kruidbos. The complaint filed by the former employee’s attorney, Wesley White says:
Mr. Kruidbos was the victim of retaliatory action by the SAO … when he was terminated from employment. The letter terminating Mr. Kruidbos makes explicit reference to his testimony of June 6th … Prior to his testimony, he was a well-regarded employee, recently received a raise, and was considered a ‘friend’ by the State Attorney. But for his testimony he would still be employed.
