9 Investigates ad targeting Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. —
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is the target of a multi-million dollar ad campaign accusing her of siding with polluters over people.
The ads, paid for by a political action committee with financial backing from former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, target Bondi as well as three other attorneys general for their opposition to the Environmental Protection Agency’s clean air standards.
Earlier this year, Bondi joined 26 other states in suing the Environmental Protection Agency over its plans to cut carbon emissions by 30 percent by 2030.
The emissions reductions are part of President Obama’s Clean Power Plan designed to limit carbon output and reduce the amount of coal used to produce electricity.
The ad, which is currently airing on WFTV, states, “Bondi’s siding with big polluters, her lawsuit would let them make millions in profits while they pollute our air and water.”
According to Bloomberg’s PAC, Independence USA, Bondi is spending taxpayer money to benefit the state’s largest utilities; a charge Bondi’s office denies.
In a written statement to Nine Investigates, Bondi’s office wrote, “Florida has a great and conscientious track record of improving its air quality and protecting its environment.
Now a billionaire bully is attacking Florida, and 26 other states, for having the audacity of defending their citizens against the EPA’s heavy-handed and unlawful regulations, which will drastically increase Floridians power bills— something this billionaire clearly cares little about.
This bully wants to defend the federal government; we want to protect the people we serve.”
WFTV Political Analyst Dr. Rick Foglesong reviewed the ad for WFTV, saying the ad is effective in raising awareness of what appears to be a pattern for Pam Bondi’s office of taking on political issues.
“The apparent calculation of the Bloomberg PAC, is that attorney generals, normally invisible, can be made a target here for not taking a stand in support of clean air,”
Foglesong said. “It is a favorable development that issues of this nature be addressed in ads that are not connected to any particular candidate, and I suspect there will be ads from the other side, the coal industry, and when you have competing ads of this nature the public is better informed.”
