Florida Republican Attorney General asks for investigation into Bloomberg’s pledge to pay felons’ fees

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.

Florida Amendment 4, the Voting Rights Restoration for Felons Initiative, was on the ballot in Florida as an initiated constitutional amendment on November 6, 2018. It was approved.

60 percent supermajority vote was required for the approval of Amendment 4.

Florida Republican Attorney General Ashley Moody on Wednesday called for an investigation into Mike Bloomberg’s work to pay off the fines and fees of Florida felons.

Moody sent a letter to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the FBI saying they should look into whether Bloomberg’s efforts to pay off fines and fees of felons is violating Florida election law and serving as an incentive that could sway votes a particular way.

In Moody’s letter, she stated that after a brief review of the law and information available publicly, she believes that further investigation is warranted.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Bloomberg raised more than $16 million to help Black and Hispanic felons in Florida who would be likely to support Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in the Nov. 3 election.

Bloomberg’s efforts intensified days after Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis won a court victory to keep felons who served their time from voting until they’ve also paid off fines, restitution and court fees.

Voting rights groups that challenged the law alleged that linking voting rights and finances amounts to an unconstitutional “poll tax.”

The Florida Rights Restoration Coalition has collected more than $20 million for a “Fines and Fees” fund established in response to the recent ruling.

The effort to wipe out felons’ debts has drawn financial support from musician John Legend and NBA superstars LeBron James and Michael Jordan, as well as Florida professional sports teams.

Florida Amendment 4, also the Voting Rights Restoration for Felons Initiative, is an amendment to the Constitution of Florida passed by ballot initiative on November 6, 2018, as part of the 2018 Florida elections. The proposition restored the voting rights of Floridians with felony convictions after they complete all terms of their sentence including parole or probation.
