Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief is in Tallahassee Friday to prove her innocence in front of an ethics commission...

The alleged violation? Improperly filing her financial disclosures.

A state ethics complaint says Sharief failed to reveal all of her real estate holdings, failed to report having a checking or savings account, and even claiming her financial worth plummeted from $8-million to $4-million.

Sharief has been investigated before for similar concerns.

Last year she was investigated and fined twice for improper Medicaid billings.
