Thanks to you and more than 6,000 fellow Floridians, Attorney General Pam Bondi announced yesterday that there would be an outside investigation of the firing of foreclosure fraud attorneys June Clarkson and Theresa Edwards.
With news coverage about your petition in the St. Petersburg Times, Miami Herald, Tampa Tribune, Florida Today, WMNF-FM and elsewhere, you helped generate significant pressure on Attorney General Bondi to act. Without your petitions, it’s unclear whether or not Bondi would have ever appointed an outside investigator.
We will remain vigilant in ensuring that this investigation is truly independent of Pam Bondi’s office and entirely removed from potential political or outside influence.
The Florida Office of Attorney General is on the front lines in the never ending effort to protect Floridians from scam artists, fraudsters and corporate criminals. It’s of paramount importance that the “people’s attorneys” be free to act on our behalf and not subject to the political shenanigans in Tallahassee.
Thank you for your help in fighting for a more progressive Florida.
Mark, Damien, and the rest of the Progress Florida team
