Bondi, born in Tampa, is Florida's 37th attorney general. Her law degree is from Stetson Law School in Florida, and she was a prosecutor for 18 years before resigning to pursue the position of state attorney general, states Ballotpedia.
Bondi's "Pill Mill" bill, which proposed to mitigate Florida's drug abuse epidemic, earned her the Leadership Award from the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators. Her opposition to the Affordable Care Act was ultimately unsuccessful as the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Act in a 5-4 decision, and a survey conducted by Quinnipiac University showed 54% of Florida residents polled opposed taking action against the Act, notes Ballotpedia. Attorney General Bondi has also worked to shut down "robocall" scams. As of July 15, 2015, Bondi and the Federal Trade Commission have already shut down two such scams, according to Silcox.Learn more about Law
