Pam Bondi: I made a mistake moving execution for fundraiser
Attorney General Pam Bondi just released the following statement concerning her request to reschedule an execution because it conflicted with her re-election campaign fundraiser:
"As a prosecutor, there was nothing more important than seeing justice done, especially when it came to the unconscionable act of murder. I personally put two people on death row and, as Attorney General, have already participated in eight executions since I took office, a role I take very seriously.
"The planned execution of Marshall Lee Gore had already been stayed twice by the courts, and we absolutely should not have requested that the date of the execution be moved."
