Sean Shaw, the Democratic candidate for state attorney general in Florida, has a message for Donald Trump. We are going to make it such that if I find bad stuff going on, we’re going to go where it takes us, no matter how big.”One recent poll put Shaw just behind his Republican opponent, Ashley Moody, who has expressed support for President Trump.
If elected, Shaw will investigate the President’s financial activities across the Sunshine State. Shaw also said that he will investigate reports that a Trump-branded development project in Sunny Isles, Florida, bears hallmarks of possible money laundering. Even if Shaw loses, Trump may be vulnerable in several other states where he has done business.
President Trump has done business in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Virginia, Washington, D. Nearly all of his companies are registered in Delaware.
The investigation suggests he may owe taxes in all of these states and others, so attorneys general may investigate whether his tax schemes affected the amount he owes.
In 2019, with investigations occurring in New York and, potentially, several other states, it seems all but certain that we will learn more about how Trump made and spent money over the past decade.
