A hearing on charges that former Indiana State Schools Superintendent Tony Bennett used Indiana state resources in his failed re-election bid has been pushed back.

The state ethics commission had been scheduled to consider the case in May.

They announced on Monday that the hearing was being delayed by three months, to August.

State inspector David Thomas provided more than 100 pages of evidence to Bennett's defense lawyers, who said they needed more time to review the documents.

Bennett resigned his position as Florida's schools chief last August, after emails surfaced that he tried to change the state's grading formula to ensure a top GOP donor's charter school received an A.
