Trump University was a scam, as it didn’t take several state attorneys general long to notice. But some of them were less dedicated to pursuing the issue than others:
The office of then-Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, a Republican, opened a civil investigation of "possibly deceptive trade practices." Abbott's probe was quietly dropped in 2010 when Trump University agreed to end its operations in Texas. Trump subsequently donated $35,000 to Abbott's successful gubernatorial campaign, according to records. [...]
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi briefly considered joining with [New York Attorney General Eric] Schneiderman in a multi-state suit against Trump University. Three days after Bondi's spokeswoman was quoted in local media reports as saying the office was reviewing the New York lawsuit, the Donald J. Trump Foundation made a $25,000 contribution to a political fundraising committee supporting Bondi's re-election campaign. Bondi, a Republican, soon dropped her investigation, citing insufficient grounds to proceed.
Well, then. It’s too bad it would remind people of the whole fraudulent university thing, because otherwise, Trump could use this example to show how good he is at getting what he wants. Even if what he wants is to continue to scam people out of money they don’t have for an “education” provided by unqualified instructors on the false promise that Trump himself was involved in any way other than collecting money.
As a side note, Pam Bondi might be a solid vice presidential pick for Trump … if it wouldn’t be pandering to pick a woman.
