Lawmaker wants records pertaining to ouster of former foreclosure investigators
by Kim Miller
Rep. Darren Soto, D-Orlando, sent a public records request today to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi asking for 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 that they could either resign or be fired. The duo say no reason was given for the move. Performance evaluations reflect only positive reviews.
“Public records indicate these terminations occurred while they were in the midst of successful mortgage fraud litigation and in spite of prior successful reviews,” Soto wrote. “As a member who represents an area ravaged by foreclosure fraud, these terminations present an overwhelming public concern.”
