Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: September of 2013
Categories: Capital Punishment, Pam Bondi, Rick Scott & Florida
Pam Bondi, the Attorney General of Florida, recently requested that the execution of an inmate scheduled to be put to death on September 10th be postponed because a fundraiser to launch her reelection bid was being held that same evening. Governor Scott has been a firm proponent of speeding up executions by minimizing the appeals process, but did not question why his Attorney General requested the delay and proceeded to grant a stay of one month.
