Pam Bondi didn't vote in 2008 presidential primary/tax relief election

At today's Suncoast Tiger Bay forum, Republican AG candidate Pam Bondi had difficulty answering a question about whether or not she voted for Amendment 1, the tax relief package offered by Republicans and Crist in 2008.

After asking what Amendment 1 was, she quickly turned the discussion to property insurance.

Turns out, she was having trouble how she voted because she didn't vote, Hillsborough County voting records show.

That election, in January of 2008, also included the Republican presidential primary won by John McCain.

According to records, Bondi has voted in every presidential election she has been eligible for, but she did not vote in the governor and Cabinet elections of 1986 and 1990.
