Pam Bondi tried to return Donald Trump cash, her accountant says

in Statewide/Top Headlines by

An accountant who works for Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi says she tried to return a controversial $25,000 donation from Donald Trump‘s foundation, but it was not accepted.

The Trump Foundation gave the money to Bondi’s political committee in 2013, but renewed questions about it were raised shortly after Bondi endorsed Trump for president.

Nancy Watkins is the treasurer for a political committee run by Bondi. She said this week that the group sent a check to the Trump Foundation in March after they became aware the foundation was a charity, an apparent violation of the rules surrounding political activities by charities.

Watkins said the Trump Foundation refused to accept the check, saying Trump wrote a personal check to his foundation covering the amount.
