Dave Aronberg criticizes Bill McCollum’s lawsuit over Health Care Reform

in Statewide by

From Dave Aronberg: “As a former Assistant Attorney General, I remember the days when the Office stood for public safety and consumer protection.

“Unfortunately, this once great Office has been politicized by an Attorney General who is diverting its limited resources to fighting a national political battle that plays to his partisan base.

“There are many real problems facing Floridians, including gang violence, foreclosure fraud, Medicaid fraud and prescription drug abuse, that should occupy the Attorney General’s time rather than a frivolous lawsuit.

“The Attorney General’s Office needs to be depoliticized – and fast. This Office is too important and Florida’s needs are too great to use it for political gimmicks.”
