Will Dave Aronberg go to work for Pam Bondi?



Dave Aronberg, who lost his bid to be the Democratic nominee for Florida Attorney General, is a member of Republican victor Pam Bondi's transition team, advising the incoming attorney general on prescription drug abuse and pill mills. But will he become a permanent member of her team? "It's totally hypothetical," Aronberg said as he was leaving the "No Labels" conference in New York City. "We talked about my joining the office. Nothing is definite yet."

So how would Aronberg feel about having a boss who's fighting the federal health care legislation and the EPA's water quality standards? That's something that would have to be worked out, Aronberg said. "My passion has ben fighting prescription drug abuse, trying to close down pill mills," he said. That's an area of common ground for him and Bondi, he said. "Pam Bondi and I agree that the issue of public safety should not be partisan," he said. "We differ on the health care lawsuit."
