Background

Political career

Horne served in the Florida State Legislature, rising to the positions of Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives and President of the Florida State Senate.

Horne was the only post-Reconstruction person to serve as both speaker of the House and president of the Senate. He was credited as "chiefly responsible for keeping the state capital in Tallahassee against an effort to move it [south] to Orlando".[3]

Horne was tried and acquitted in 1985 on charges of money laundering when federal investigators alleged that he had smuggled marijuana into the United States from the Cayman Island on the twin-engine airplane he piloted.[4]
