Anderson Cooper takes on Florida AG on LGBT rights

Cooper had a very revealing on-camera interview with Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.

Do read the story from The Daily Beast- it's short. I cannot snippetize it without losing the punch. But here is the closing line.

Earlier this month, NBC News reported that Bondi’s failed fight against marriage equality would cost Florida taxpayers nearly $500,000.

And, BTW, from an AP report quoted at

Three days after Bondi's spokeswoman was quoted in local media reports as saying the office was reviewing the New York lawsuit [against Trump University], the Donald J. Trump Foundation made a $25,000 contribution to a political fundraising committee supporting Bondi's re-election campaign. Bondi, a Republican, soon dropped her investigation, citing insufficient grounds to proceed.

That ain't just hypocrisy, folks. It sure does smack of payola.
