AG BONDI: “UNFATHOMABLE” THAT ANDREW GILLUM WOULD HONOR STATE ATTORNEY ARAMIS AYALA
TALLAHASSEE, FL- Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi issued the below statement tonight following the news that Andrew Gillum participated in honoring failed State Attorney Aramis Ayala with an award at the 2018 Blue Gala in Miami.
"It is unfathomable to me that Andrew Gillum would participate in honoring State Attorney Aramis Ayala, who refused to even consider the death penalty for the man who brutally murdered a true hero - Lieutenant Debra Clayton. Andrew Gillum is demonstrating that he will not stand up for our brave law enforcement officers who risk their lives each day to keep us safe. I know Ron DeSantis will stand shoulder to shoulder with all our brave first responders." - Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi
In 2017, State Attorney Aramis Ayala refused to seek the death penalty for Markeith Loyd, who was arrested for fatally shooting his pregnant girlfriend, Orlando Police Lt. Debra Clayton.
