FLORIDA, July 26, 2013 — Now that more facts are coming out about Angela Corey in the wake of her failure to get a conviction in George Zimmerman’s trial, attention is turning to the people responsible for appointing her to the case.

Until late March of 2012, the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin was being handled by then-east central Florida-area State Attorney Norm Wolfinger.

Nancy Smith of Sunshine State News reports that “(o)n March 22, Scott’s office issued a press release announcing, ‘The governor and attorney general reached out to State Attorney Norman Wolfinger today. After the conversation, Wolfinger decided to step down from this investigation and turn it over to another state attorney.’

“Usually, that other state attorney would be from an adjoining circuit. Not in this case. Bondi and Scott went straight for Angela Corey up in Jacksonville — their friend.”

Ian Tuttle of the National Review writes “Rick Scott, Pam Bondi (whose office declined a request for comment), and Angela Corey were closely connected years before the Zimmerman trial. Corey was elected state attorney for Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit in August 2008, winning the Republican primary with 64 percent of the vote. 

“Two years later, Scott ran for governor and Bondi for attorney general. Corey was a donor to both, contributing to Scott $300 and to Bondi $750. While serving as one of Bondi’s eight state campaign co-chairs, Corey appeared on the campaign trail for Scott, and she served on the transition teams of both officials following their successful campaigns.”

It gets even more interesting.

“How could Sybrina Fulton be approved for a crime victims relief fund (March 29th) prior to anyone identifying whether a crime was committed?” asks Sundance, a blogger at The Conservative Treehouse, a widely-read right-of-center website which has covered the Martin shooting’s aftermath detailedly. “George Zimmerman was not arrested until April 11th.

“The answer is simply political influence via Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.

“Bondi has been a key part of the scheme to enrich her race-motivated friends, Benjamin Crump and Daryl Parks, Trayvon family attorneys, from the beginning.

“Pam Bondi has a long-standing personal and professional relationship with Benjamin Crump from her prior work in the Martin Lee Anderson wrongful death case.

“Bondi was State prosecutor and Crump was the Anderson family attorney who sued the State and County governments for $7.4 million on behalf of his client, Mrs. Anderson (Martin’s mother).

It was Pam Bondi, who in March of 2012 used her position as AG to convince Governor Rick Scott to appoint her friend, and Attorney General 2010 campaign chair, Angela Corey, to prosecute George Zimmerman.

The goal was appeasement of the institutional race-baiting class of Seminole County NAACP board member, and Trayvon family attorney Natalie Jackson, along with her friends Benjamin Crump and Daryl Parks who were chasing the financial rewards for Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, TrayParents™.
