Ashley Moody, Florida’s Attorney General has referred Michael Bloomberg to the FBI and state authorities, calling for a criminal investigation.
In a letter to Michael McPherson of the FBI and Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Richard Swearingen, Moody wrote “After preliminarily reviewing this limited public information and law, it appears further investigation is warranted. Accordingly, I request that your agencies further investigate the matter and take appropriate steps as merited.”
Tuesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz called for an investigation into billionaire Mike Bloomberg for “potentially engaging in bribery and vote buying in the state of Florida.” Gaetz argued Blooomberg is paying the “debts of felons in exchange for their votes. Not every felon…it’s just those that they specifically identified as the Biden voters.”

As reported by TCO, according to a new report from Axios, Billionaire Democrat Michael Bloomberg has raised more than $16 million, which includes $5 million from the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition in an effort to help black and latino convicted felons in Florida to vote.
In order to be eligible, the voter needed to be black and latino, already registered to vote and have debts of less than $1,500. White felons were not eligible.
