Democrats seize on Pam Bondi-Donald Trump controversy to welcome him back to Florida



The Democratic-leaning group Progress Florida is welcoming Donald Trump back to Tampa today with a new video called "Something Stinks." It concerns the attorney general's decision not to pursue an investigation into Trump University, which her office made after receiving a campaign contribution from Trump.

"Pam Bondi has shown a disturbing pattern of siding with powerful lobbyists and corporate interests over the Florida citizens she is sworn to protect," said Progress Florida's Executive Director Mark Ferrulo. "The timing of the Trump donation and Bondi's decision to let Trump University off the hook raises the question of whether the state's highest legal office is willing to barter away justice to the highest bidder. Floridians are demanding and deserve answers."
