Former NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg says he'll spend millions to help Biden win in the Sunshine State. Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has asked the FBI to investigate Mike Bloomberg's pledge to spend $16 million to help convicted felons regain their right to vote. The former New York mayor's donation to the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition comes just weeks after NBA star LeBron James pledged $100,000 to the same organization.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis asked her office to look into Bloomberg's fundraising plan.
Florida's attorney general asked state and federal law enforcement on Wednesday to investigate possible election law violations after billionaire and former Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg helped raise more than $16 million for Florida felons to pay their debts so they can vote in the presidential election. Attorney General Ashley Moody sent letters to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the FBI saying that further investigation is warranted. Gov. Ron DeSantis had asked Moody to review allegations that Bloomberg and the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition had violated the law by offering incentives for voting.
