Dear Kim,

My name is Amy Ballon and I was taken advantage sexually of by an employee of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence. I have an active law suit against them, and am reaching out to you for help.

I will await your reply,

Sincerely,

Amy Ballon

On August 28, the following E mail reply was sent to Amy, and is the only response received so far.

Dear Ms. Ballon,

This is to follow up on your telephone conversation with Director Gainey and Ms. Harris on Monday morning, the 27th of August. Director Gainey asked me to respond.

As our office explained to you over the phone, the Attorney General and this office have no oversight of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence, which is an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Therefore, we do not have the information you are requesting. Please contact the Coalition’s Executive Director and/or their Board of Directors directly to address your questions.

Thank you for contacting Attorney General Bondi’s office.

Sincerely,

There are several disturbing trends about this e-mail reply: Why would the attorney general direct Amy back to the coalition when they were the ones whose agency the event occurred? Also,Tiffany Carr was included in the e-mail so she has already been contacted. Carr also responded in the lawsuit by blaming Amy for what happened. Further, according to Alexis Moore, attorney, advocate, and risk management consultant, the answer that Bondi’s office gave Amy is innacurate. Amy shared with me that the response also made her PTSD symptoms worse and set her really far back with regard to already minimal progress in therapy.

After Amy’s pending lawsuit, the unearthed corruption about Tiffany Carr’s yearly salary and fund misallocation, it’s astounding that this is the only answer uttered. Does the silence from the other parties mean the abuse is tolerated? Silence generally equates acceptance, just as when Trump did not speak out against the White Supremacists in Charlottesville, VA. last year. It’s abhorrent that only one inaccurate answer has been given by those in the highest positions of power to actually take corrective action. Especially when this is an election year! Why are they scared silent? The worst part? The ongoing suffering of victims like Amy Ballon.

To help, here are calls to action:
