Yes, he did! Patronis slides into Cabinet tradition (with pic)

DViJcFUVoAAjAV4Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis took Attorney General Pam Bondi up on her “double dog dare” about going down the Big Slide on the opening day of the Florida State Fair.

While Patronis appears to have left his potato sack behind, Gov. Rick Scott seems to have once again avoided rollicking good time.

“The Florida State Fair slide is one of the best parts of my official duties,” Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam tweeted following today’s Cabinet meeting in Tampa.

On Wednesday, Bondi teased Patronis — who attended his first fair as a Cabinet member Thursday — about the annual trip down the slide.

Patronis poked back, with a reference to doggie-loving Bondi’s adoption recruitment efforts.
