In March 2014, Donald Trump opened his 126-room Palm Beach resort, Mar-a-Lago, for a $3,000-per-person fundraiser for Pam Bondi. The Florida attorney general, who was facing a tough re-election campaign, had recently decided not to investigate Trump University. …
Since he began his run for the White House, Trump has repeatedly claimed that Bondi is merely someone he has supported politically. But his fundraising efforts for her were extensive and varied: In addition to the $25,000 donation from his foundation and the star-studded Mar-a-Lago event, Trump and his daughter Ivanka each gave $500 to Bondi’s campaign in the fall of 2013. The following spring, Ivanka and her father donated another $125,000 to the Republican Party of Florida ― Bondi’s single biggest source of campaign funds.
When Trump “rented” that same space for his campaign, he billed his own presidential election some $140,000. But when Pam Bondi was having her fundraiser, Mar-a-Lago came with a price tag of just $4,856. That’s a 97 percent discount for Bondi. Quite the deal from Mr. I-Make-Tough-Deals.
As Joe Biden would say, this is a big f*cking deal.
I’d like to know just when exactly Trump and Bondi become such good friends. Because if the first time they talked was when Bondi rang him looking for a contribution then those optics are not so good at all.
I hope Hillary keeps hammering him on this and that the media does their bloody job.
