“Today, I sent a letter to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Federal Bureau of Investigation into potential violations of election laws,” Moody said in a statement provided to Fox News.
“I have instructed the statewide prosecutor to work with law enforcement and any statewide grand jury that the governor may call,” she said.
“Under Florida law, it’s a third-degree felony for someone to either directly or indirectly provide something of value to impact whether or not someone votes,” – Rep. Matt Gaetz
Gaetz on Wednesday praised Moody’s actions to investigate the donations.
Bloomberg’s donation went to the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, which has raised about $5 million for the same initiative.
Bloomberg made calls to raise almost $17 million more, according to his staffers, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.
Just days before, the former mayor of New York City pledged another $100 million to the state of Florida on behalf of Biden’s election efforts.
A third-degree felony in Florida can carry jail time. It would be sweet, poetic justice if Bloomberg faced jail time for trying to buy the election after he tried, and completely failed, to buy the Democratic nominee.
