Today, Pam Bondi sent a new message to LGBT Floridians. She would kindly ask that they put their fight for their civil rights on pause because she’s tired of spending taxpayer dollars fighting equality. In Pam Bondi’s Florida, justice can wait until it’s more convenient to her. The victims of discrimination should cool their jets to “preserve taxpayer and judicial resources.”
You know what would save taxpayer resources? Simply ending her bigoted fight against marriage equality, as at least seven other Attorneys General across the United States have done.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Pam Bondi has requested a self-serving delay. Just last year she had a murderer’s execution rescheduled because it would have distracted from her campaign fundraising.
And where was Bondi’s concern for taxpayer dollars when she spent our money in an effort to defend polluters in the Chesapeake Bay?
