Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi


Tampa Bay Times:

Execution rescheduled to accommodate Pam Bondi fundraiser

There is no graver responsibility and act of state government than an execution.

In Florida this week, a campaign fundraiser takes precedence.

Attorney General Pam Bondi persuaded Gov. Rick Scott to postpone an execution scheduled for tonight because it conflicted with her re-election kick-off reception.

“What’s going on down there? It’s ridiculous,” said Phyllis Novick, the Ohio mother of one of Marshall Lee Gore’s victims, when told Monday about the reason for the delay.

Gore, 50, raped, strangled and stabbed 30-year-old Robyn Novick in 1988 before dumping her body into a Miami-Dade County trash heap. Gore was also sentenced to die for the slaying of 19-year-old Susan Roark, whose body was found a few months later in Columbia County.

[…]

Scott said Monday that he did not know the reason for the request, and he declined to answer when asked whether he considers a campaign fundraiser an appropriate reason to reschedule an execution.

“When another Cabinet officer asks for something, we try to work with them,” Scott said.

On Monday, Bondi responded to questions with a statement saying she had made a mistake.

“As a prosecutor, there was nothing more important than seeing justice done, especially when it came to the unconscionable act of murder. I personally put two people on death row and, as Attorney General, have already participated in eight executions since I took office, a role I take very seriously,” Bondi said.

“The planned execution of Marshall Lee Gore had already been stayed twice by the courts, and we absolutely should not have requested that the date of the execution be moved,” said Bondi, who has long championed victims’ rights.

[…]

“Wherever one stands on the death penalty, there isn’t anyone in America that believes an execution should be postponed for political fundraising,” said David Donnelly, executive director of Public Campaign Action Fund. “That Pam Bondi requested a delay in this execution shows how the nonstop chase for campaign cash has hollowed out the morality of our political system. Her moral compass is broken.”


What the fuck?

There are some things you cannot call a “mistake”. This is one of them. It demonstrates a callous disregard for others that is almost malicious and depraved. The worst part is that it was totally unnecessary because she is running virtually unopposed.

It should come as no surprise that Bondi appointed Angela Corey as special prosecutor on the George Zimmerman case. Birds of a feather flock together and Corey was Bondi’s 2010 campaign chairwoman.

In case you are wondering, Bondi is a Republican.

        Politics is really becoming exasperating. Can only think of a handful of politicians who are not engaged in power, greed, narcissism or conniving, to name just a few. Somehow it seems we need to get back to a very basic, root idea…..problem solving. Politicians need to be pushed back and held responsible for “problem solving”. What problems are current politicians really trying to solve? Most are involved in political strategizing. I keep asking myself…what is an elected politician actually supposed to do? And, conversely, and maybe even more importantly, what really is the role of government?

      I may have to take CNN off my parental control list just so I can watch Newt’s rubber face with the sound off. Cutler is a dope and a hack. I like how Paul politely told her to shut up, “Lemme finish, lemme finish” and just drowned her out trying to cut him off.

    • DandyTIger says:

      I seem to have a physical reaction when I see Crazy Cutter. Can’t watch without a barf bag handy.

      Daily Caller:

      To watch this latest incarnation of Crossfire is to confront, head-on, the defining unspoken reality of human existence: bad people like Stephanie Cutter can climb, in defiance of taste and public demand, to a position of success.

      A loathsome creature like Stephanie Cutter, the roots jutting out from her blonde dye job as black as the recesses of her soul, can push her way onto national television to sit next to a former Speaker of the House and two sitting U.S. senators. A charmless, dead-eyed, tacky sociopath with no sense of ethics, an empty shell spewing her flat-throated bile without the slightest trace of self-awareness, can beat all of us to the front of the Darwinian line.

      A figure of hatred and dishonesty, a person devoid of any pleasantness or redeeming human value, a treadmill-stomping, Starbucks-chugging monument to modern self-absorption, someone incapable of appreciating good art, fine food, or the love or kidness of her fellow man, can shove and kick and lie her way ahead of the rest of us in this misbegotten society. This unmitigated monster can appear before us, talentless, grating, fraudulently tanned, thrusting in our faces the career trophies she earned simply because we didn’t care enough to stop her from getting them.

      Who is responsible for this speed-talking tragedy? Who, among us, will stand in the public square and admit “I helped cause Stephanie Cutter.” Will anyone? Should we all?

      Stephanie Cutter is feminism mutated into grotesque cartoon. She is the 90-IQ suburbanite Student Council vice president smugly doodling her gel pens in the front row of the class, mixed with the ranting fever dreams of the Smith College lecture halls, doused with half a dash of unearned metropolitan haughtiness and marinated in the despicable shouting matches of post-Carville politicking. She is Carrie Bradshaw without the literacy, Chelsea Handler without the punch lines, Kirsten Powers without the prettiness, gorging her face with the spoils of ill-gotten first-world privilege. How did we allow this American with a Social Security number to power-walk through the halls of our society for 44 years (yes, Stephanie, forty-four) without recognizing the warning signs?

      Don’t hold back! Tell us what you really think.

        Holy shit. That’s brutal. All true, but brutal.

      • Constance says:

        WOW! Crossfire is infotainment. If she is that awful she will get destroyed by Gingrich who is well informed and quick witted and pragmatic. I’ve never seen her say anything that wasn’t a talking point emphatically stated. I seriously doubt her one track mind can keep up with Gingrich in that format. She would need breaks to have her new talking points formulated and inserted into her brain. I don’t see her as a threat to be feared to the extent that she would inspire such an article as the one above. She is simply one of those women who advance by kissing the hairy ass directly in front of her and that is her only skill set, men love those sort of women so that is probably how she got the position on Crossfire.

  5. DandyTIger says:

    Bondi and Corey are two extra special people. And what does it say about FL that those two have any political position much less the powerful ones they have. There’s rotten and corrupt, then there’s Bondi rotten and corrupt. They’re making Chicago look civilized.

  6. Constance says:

    This is really sad. I know a lot of people who thought getting women into politics would clean things up. Sadly not so. Women are just as corrupt, power seeking, self centered, and many show a stunning political simple mindedness. Women, sadly are also equally incompetent as men. I still support having more women in politics and government because more people would be represented but things are not going to get cleaner because of it.

  7. Somebody says:

    Both women in question in years past before they ran for political office had good reputations as very hard working prosecutors. They came into office as overachievers, but they’ve let the power of their positions go to their heads.

    I saw that in Bondi during the Obamacare suits, I swear she never met a camera she didn’t feel the need to be in front of. Angela Corey’s ego trip has been pretty well documented in the Jacksonville area too. Many politicians let their position go to their heads.
