Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has risen to national prominence because of her leading role in the lawsuit against Obamacare that will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court this spring. However, her
crusading spirit has also made her one of the best friends Florida senior citizens could have.
"Pam Bondi is the type of politician that seniors can trust," says TSC President and CEO Dr. Joseph Bridges. "She has fearlessly challenged the Obama Administration's Health Control Law and, hopefully, will convince the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn it. While too many other politicians were simply complaining about Obamacare, she and a number of other attorneys general took action to have this dangerous law declared unconstitutional."
Because of her leading role in fighting Obamacare, Bondi was selected as one of the co-hosts for a Republican Presidential debate last spring on FOX News.
Back in Florida, Bondi has developed a reputation as a tireless advocate for that state's large senior citizen population. Her office's "Seniors vs. Crime" program specifically strives to enlist senior citizens in the battle against crime – specifically cases of consumer crimes or fraud.
The program, which was started in 1989, enlists senior citizen volunteers to serve as "Senior Sleuths." These citizens assist the Attorney General's office in various investigations involving crime against seniors, serve as Bondi's "eyes and ears" within the senior citizen community, and even help law enforcement with undercover operations. Over 3,000 seniors serve as "Senior Sleuths."
"This is a unique and highly innovative program, that seems to be quite effective," remarks Bridges. "If I lived in Florida I would definitely apply to be a Senior Sleuth."
