Florida Sen. Eleanor Sobel and Rep. Darren Soto have asked for federal
assistance to probe the firings of two state foreclosure fraud lawyers.
The two lawmakers have expanded their request for records from Attorney
General Pam Bondi, whose office removed the two lawyers despite having
what were reportedly good performance reviews. “A number of troubling
questions have come to our attention involving past and current
employees of the Attorney General’s office and at least one mortgage
processing company currently under investigation,” the two wrote in a
statement. Bondi herself has ordered
a probe
of the firings. [Palm
