[Florida legislator and Brevard County Community College lecturer Mike] Haridopolos got paid $154,000 [by the college] to write a book titled Florida Legislative History and Processes.

[T]he book is light on content, has errors and – are you ready for this – there is exactly one copy.

One copy.

Really. $154,000 for one copy.

No, he didn’t teach during that time. Too busy on the book.

Excerpts from the book here.
