Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has been named “Loser of the Year” by the Tampa Bay Times for her continued defense of Florida's gay marriage ban.

Bondi has racked up an unimpressive record fighting numerous state and federal challenges to Florida's 2008 voter-approved constitutional amendment limiting marriage to heterosexual unions.

Her latest – and so far greatest – loss came when the Supreme Court refused to block implementation of a federal judge's ruling striking down Florida's ban. Bondi insists the decision, scheduled to take effect on January 6, only applies to one county.

“It's hard to imagine how someone who won re-election so handily (rival George Sheldon could not afford a single TV ad) could emerge from 2014 more wounded and diminished as our Republican attorney general,” the paper wrote in awarding Bondi her prize. “Put aside the unseemly junkets funded by groups seeking to influence her. Bondi's clumsy communication skills and relentless defense of Florida's gay marriage ban have made her a modern-day Anita Bryant. Antagonizing Florida's gay voters over same-sex marriage and Hispanic voters over immigration reform ensures Bondi has a bright political future ahead of her – if she moves to Mississippi.”

Bondi, a former Fox News legal analyst, is also an unlikely spokesperson for marriage. She divorced her first husband after 22 months. A second marriage to Scott Fitzgerald fizzled after six years. In 2012, Bondi mysteriously canceled a Cayman Islands wedding to Dr. Greg Henderson. She later explained that she had flown roughly 70 guests to a luxury resort to help her celebrate her upcoming nuptials.

Bondi has previously said that she has many gay friends and that she is simply doing her job by defending the state's ban.
