Pam Bondi Campaign Team Behind Gelber smears

Pam (Buffy) Bondi's campaign denied any connections or links to the mail pieces. However, news stories today unravel the truth behind Pam Bondi’s smear campaign.

Dan Gelber is a mensch acoording to wife, Joan.

: “Bondi campaign had undisclosed links to "toxic" mailer”

When a round of political mailers went out to South Florida homes labeling Democratic attorney general nominee Dan Gelber “toxic to Jewish education,” his opponent Pam Bondi’s campaign told the Sun Sentinel last week that she knew nothing about the fliers. On Thursday, it emerged that the mailer was paid for with a donation from the American Federation for Children, a Washington, D.C.-based group that has a very close but previously undisclosed link to one of Bondi’s top campaign advisors. 10/29/10

Broward New Times:

Remember those shady attack ads aimed at Florida Attorney General candidate Dan Gelber accusing him of being "toxic to Jewish education"? Initially, it didn't appear that Gelber's opponent, Pam Bondi, was involved in the smear. Her campaign denied she had any knowledge of the attack ads.. Well, now we learn that there is a connection between Bondi's campaign...This makes Bondi's denial a little harder to believe... 10/29/10

Democratic AG candidate Dan Gelber's wife, Joan, is coming to his defense in an e-mail that criticizes attack ads that are criticizing Gelber as "toxic to Jewish education." The Herald and other papers today detailed ties between the group sending the flyers and Gelber's Republican opponent, Buffy Bondi. Joan referrred to her husband as a mensch. 

Over the last week my young children have come home from school each afternoon worried that another mailer arrived with a picture of their father in a 'Wanted' poster," Gelber writes. "Our 6 year old asks why people are saying such bad things about his Daddy. I recognize politics is a contact sport, but frankly I’m tired with the utter lack of decency. Now that it’s been confirmed that Ms. Bondi is connected with these vile mailers I’m asking you to let her know that truth matters and that wanting something badly doesn’t mean you can do anything to get it. These are lessons my husband and I proudly teach our children – and lessons we need to teach Ms. Bondi.

If you can read between the lines, you would understand why the Bondi smear is ludicrous.

Rightrdia interviewed Gelber. He is an incredibly smart and expereinced man and almost all of the major Florida newspapers endorse Gelber.

Bondi's claim to fame is that she was a legal analyst for Fox News.   It was barely a year ago that Pam Bondi was also named one of Tampa Bay's best dressed for 2009. What amazing
This is really 'no contest.'
