Bondi's re-election gets boost from curiously timed Trump contribution

TALLAHASSEE — For the second time in more than a month, campaign contributions fueling the re-election efforts of Attorney General Pam Bondi are raising questions about the overlap between politics and how Florida's top law enforcement officer performs her duties.

Bondi apologized last month after she persuaded Gov. Rick Scott to delay an execution so she could host a fundraiser at her South Tampa home that ended up raising $140,000.

Now comes criticism of a $25,000 contribution made by one of Donald Trump's foundations to a political committee associated with Bondi. The donation came three days after an Attorney General's office spokeswoman said Bondi was reviewing allegations in a lawsuit filed by the New York attorney general against get-rich-quick seminars associated with Trump.

This is a joke! There has been ONE complaint against Trump in Florida although hundreds have attended his seminars. The us NO finding against Trump in New York.
The school has a 98% approval rating from it's students.
Even the ONE complaint in Fla admits he benefited from the Trump school. The New York Charges are part of an effort by NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to shake down Trump and his family for campaign contributions.
