CFO Patronis: DFS Prepared to Support Investigation on FCADV
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Today, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued the following statement regarding Governor Ron DeSantis’ actions on investigating the Florida Collation Against Domestic Violence (FCADV).
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “Government should do the right thing by its citizens – and I applaud Governor DeSantis for decisive action in investigating FCADV. The Coalition is clearly not being transparent and that’s a problem. As such, I’ve alerted our auditing team at the Department of Financial Services (DFS) to review and provide any relevant documentation to the Governor’s Office that may aid in getting to the truth. Additionally, as the investigation moves forward, DFS is staffed with well qualified auditors, and we’re prepared to provide support that may be needed for analyzing any complex financial activities the Coalition may have undertaken in an attempt to hide their actions.”
