Donald Trump's illegal $25,000 donation to a political group linked to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi "demands full attention from voters," The Boston Globe says in an editorial.

"This is more than an accounting error. There's a whiff of scandal …" the Globe's editorial board writes in Thursday's editions.

The Globe points out the 2013 donation was made four days after reports that Bondi's office "was mulling an investigation of fraud charges against Trump University" — allegations that never surfaced.

It seems more than coincidental … Bondi never pressed ahead with any probe, and endorsed Trump's candidacy," the Globe says.

"With less than nine weeks left until Election Day, it's time to sort the signal from the noise. Questions surrounding the non-investigation of Trump University and the donation to Bondi's campaign are damaging to her reputation as attorney general, the chief law enforcement official in Florida.

"She owes her constituents a more thorough explanation. And the episode may finally prove to voters that Trump, who claims to be a brash outsider, is not above a crass political payoff."
