Dear Attorney General McCollum,
On May 19, the Florida Democratic Party called your attention to the outstanding account balance of over $2 million in state funds you wasted on behalf of your own personal gain and partisan politics. You still owe that amount to the taxpayers of Florida, and under the terms of the invoice, you were given thirty days to pay.
According to our records we have received neither a reply to our letter nor an indication that a payment was made to the Division of Treasury to clear this account. The said thirty day extension is now expired and you are considered as having defaulted on your debt to the taxpayers of Florida.
We extended the deadline on your account in good faith that you would come to the understanding that tax dollars should not be used to further your political career, and expected payment under the normal thirty day terms which we felt was most reasonable.
So that no further action on our part will be necessary, we shall expect a remittance by return mail to the Florida Division of Treasury and the courtesy of a reply to our letter as to why payment had been withheld. For your reference, we have enclosed the May 19 invoice.
Please be advised that if these actions are not taken, we can exercise other options, including but not limited to enlisting a collections agency to settle your outstanding balance.
We look forward to your prompt response.
Florida Democratic Party
On behalf of Florida’s Taxpayers
