Democratic Rep. Darren Soto Pushes to Reinstate Bondi’s Two Ousted Florida Foreclosure Investigators
“We loved those jobs more than you have any idea,” Clarkson said. “We would love to go back and work for the attorney general, but under a different administration. I don’t really think we’re looking toward the same goals.”
Lawmaker may push to reinstate two ousted Florida foreclosure investigators

An Orlando lawmaker wants two former state foreclosure investigators reinstated if performance evaluations he has requested reflect high rankings for the duo.
Democratic Rep. Darren Soto sent a public records request Wednesday to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, asking for evaluations and documents related to the forced resignations of Theresa Edwards and June Clarkson.
The two former assistant attorneys general had been the lead investigators on the state’s foreclosure fraud cases, but were abruptly told in May to resign or they would be fired.
They say no reason was given for the move. Performance evaluations provided to The Palm Beach Post by the attorney general’s office reflect only positive reviews.
“My sole concern,” Soto said Thursday, “is to see if we can get them reinstated. No grandiose policies or investigations. I just want to do what’s most effective for my constituents.”
