To The Daily Sun,
In 2012 the Florida Attorney General's Office received at least 22 fraud complaints about Trump University. The following year, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi announced that her office was looking into joining a class action lawsuit against Donald Trump for tax fraud with regards to Trump University. Just four days after her announcement, And Justice For All (a SuperPAC supporting Bondi's re-election campaign) received a $25,000 donation from the Donald J. Trump Foundation.
One day later, Pam Bondi announced that Florida would not be joining the lawsuit after all. Hmmmmm.
Earlier this year, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint with the IRS alleging that the donation was a violation of federal tax law. The Trump Foundation responded by saying that the donation had been made "in error" — despite the fact that investigators had discovered Attorney General Bondi herself had personally solicited the donation, had endorsed Trump for president, and made repeated public claims she and Donald Trump had been friends "for many years."
The state of Florida had no choice but look into the matter.
Just two months ago, investigators concluded the donation had indeed violated laws regarding political contributions from nonprofits like the Donald J. Trump Foundation. Donald Trump was forced to reimburse the foundation from his own money and pay a penalty to the IRS in the form of an excise tax.
On Nov. 8 Donald Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States of America. He lost the popular vote, but won (presumably) the Electoral College. There are 19 electors from the state of Florida, and all of them cast their vote for Donald Trump. Pam Bondi, as it happens, is one of those electors. Wow! Who woulda thunk it?
This past weekend — Nov. 20 — Pam Bondi joined the Donald Trump Presidential Transition Team.
Please, tell me another story about that swamp? Maybe Stevie Earle and Don Ewing can tell it while wearing gator hats around a fire made up of burning Constitutions?? #StupidWhitePeople
