Watch Anderson Cooper Destroy Florida’s Attorney General Over Her LGBT Hypocrisy

By

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (R) ran for office in 2010 vowing fight against allowing gay adoptions and same-sex marriage. As attorney general, she vigorously defended the state’s constitutional marriage ban. On Sunday, after the horrific Orlando shootings, she pledged that, “Anyone who attacks our LGBT community, anyone who attacks anyone in our state, will be gone after to the fullest extent of the law.”

On Tuesday, CNN’s Anderson Cooper called Bondi out for her hypocrisy, grilling her about the contradiction between her recent statements and her anti-LGBT rhetoric in defending the state’s marriage ban, when she had claimed in an official court brief that recognizing other state’s same-sex marriages would “impose significant public harm” on Florida.
