A 'messy situation': State's top financial regulator on leave after sexual harassment complaint

The state’s top financial regulator is on administrative leave after a sexual harassment complaint was filed against him.

Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis disclosed the complaint — the complainant called it a “messy situation” — against Office of Financial Regulation (OFR) Commissioner Ronald Rubin Friday night after “directing an immediate investigation,” the CFO said in a statement.

“Due to these troubling allegations in a sexual harassment complaint filed by an OFR employee, I am requiring an immediate investigation into the conduct of Commissioner Rubin,” Patronis said.

“Every person deserves to feel safe and respected in their work environment,” he added. “That standard is non-negotiable. Commissioner Rubin has been placed on administrative leave. I have directed my Office of the Inspector General to begin a preliminary investigation, and I will seek additional input from the Cabinet.”

Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis stopped by his hometown of Panama City and then Tallahassee Thursday after spending time in Tampa, where his wife Katie underwent breast cancer surgery at Moffit Cancer Center.

Katie Patronis was diagnosed a few weeks ago, but her diagnosis became public Thursday afternoon.

The couple met in 1998 when Katie's uncle, a friend of the Patronis family, introduced the two. Katie's mother worked at the Patronis family's historic restaurant, Captain Anderson's, and the young couple bumped into one another at local government events. The families also spent time together as friends, hanging out in Panama City and scuba diving.

"My wife is incredibly important to our successes," Patronis said, choking up. "I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for her."
