Legislators Ask Feds to Investigate Florida Attorney General Bondi's Alleged Ouster of ForeclosureGate AG Attorneys


This week two Florida Legislators, Representative Darren Soto and State Senator Eleanor Sobel, officially requested that the federal government become involved in yet another growing controversy here in Florida involving ForeclosureGate.

Florida legislators ask DOJ and Congress to Investigate Clarkson and Edwards Exit from Florida AG's Office
