FL Ethics Board Clears AG Bondi Over Trump Contribution

Palm Beach Post:

After conducting a probe that included a face-to-face interview with Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, the state’s ethics commission is throwing out complaints related to Bondi’s decision to seek a $25,000 campaign contribution from Donald Trump nearly four years ago.

Bondi asked for — and got — money from Trump’s charitable foundation about the same time her office was being asked about a New York investigation of alleged fraud at Trump University. She also received a $500 contribution from his daughter Ivanka Trump the same month.

During a closed-door meeting Friday, the Florida Commission on Ethics concluded there was no probable cause that Bondi violated any state laws, according to Mark Herron, a Tallahassee attorney who represented one of the people who filed a complaint against her.
