Winner and loser of the week in Fla politics



hooker.jpgWinner of the week: Elite GOP/Crist fundraisers. We don't (yet) know who they are, but some Republicans are breathing a bit easier after an appeals court blocked the public release of "salacious" bbondi.jpgallegations supposedly involving prostitute-filled golf carts at a party fundraising retreat during Charlie Crist's governorship.

Loser of the week: Pam Bondi. The attorney general, still railing against the Affordable Care Act that she sought to overturn and rode into many Fox News appearances, is in full Outrage Mode about the law for which she no longer has much relevance. Positioning herself to the right of Rick Scott and apparently eager be the most partisan Republican warrior in Florida, one-time rising star Bondi is increasingly stepping onto risky political territory.
