TAMPA, FLORIDA (NEWSMAX) – Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi on Friday was confronted by protestors outside a Tampa, Fla., theatre regarding her stance on healthcare and immigration, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Bondi was attending a screening of, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” a documentary about Mr. Rogers.
“What would Mr. Rogers think about you and your legacy in Florida? Taking away health insurance from people with pre-existing conditions, Pam Bondi!” yelled activist Maria José Chapa, a labor organizer, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “Shame on you!”
“You’re a horrible person,” another protestor shouted.
Bondi, who in February joined Republican counterparts in 19 other states in a lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act, including a provision that bars insurance companies from charging people with pre-existing conditions more, had to be escorted from Tampa Theatre by law enforcement.
“We were in a movie about anti-bullying and practicing peace and love and tolerance and accepting of people for their differences,” Bondi told the Times. “That’s what Mr. Rogers is all about. We all believe in free speech, but there’s a big difference there.”
