TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Lieutenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp's
says he used a state plane to travel for official business, but
records on some occasions show he may have used the plane for personal trips.

Kottkamp reimbursed the state more than $10,000 for flights his wife and son took aboard state planes after The Sun Sentinel of Fort Lauderdale investigated their travel.

But records show he used the plane to fly to St. Augustine in 2007 for a federal Small Business Administration event.

SBA officials said they had no events during Kottkamp's visit.

On Thanksgiving weekend 2008, Kottkamp and his wife flew to
Tallahassee for a football game.

Records show he attended a jazz brunch at a lobbyist's home before flying home to Fort Myers.

Kottkamp says "not everything I do is on the calendar."
