TALLAHASSEE — Attorney General Pam Bondi is preparing to speak next month to a group that has ties to the Church of Scientology.
Bondi will discuss human trafficking and anti-drug initiatives at an event sponsored by Florida Citizens for Social Reform, a social welfare group and onetime political committee associated with the Church of Scientology. Bondi's Oct. 1 appearance will be held at the Fort Harrison Hotel, the flagship of Scientology's Clearwater spiritual headquarters.
"Considering the seriousness of this issue, the attorney general is open to talking to any organization about what our office is doing to combat this awful crime and educate them on what they can do to help," Bondi spokeswoman Kylie Mason said.
