Moffitt returns $1 million to Florida over Chinese ties

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Moffitt Cancer Center is returning more than $1 million in state money. Officials said Friday that they couldn't determine whether the money from the Florida Department of Health was properly spent by one of its scientists tied to a recent investigation into Chinese meddling. The money originally was used to pay for the salary and staff of Howard McLeod, a senior member in Moffitt’s department of cancer epidemiology in Tampa.  McLeod was forced resign in December. Also forced to resign were Moffitt's former CEO and four other scientists after an internal investigation found they did not disclose ties to Chinese recruitment programs.
