DeSantis Suspends State Attorney Who Would Defy Abortion Law

Linkedin Share

As Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues his quest to raise his national profile, he’s making a major move in the name of the state’s new abortion law.

The Sunshine State lawmaker has been tight-lipped about any potential plans to run for office in 2024, but his actions speaks louder than words as he meets with mega-donors halfway across the country.

And his latest move back home in Florida will undoubtedly be seen as advantageous to DeSantis’ work in courting MAGA voters – something that will certainly come in handy if he does announce a potential run for the White House.

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended liberal State Attorney Andrew Warren on Thursday.

DeSantis made the announcement during a press conference broadcast on social media. DeSantis argued that Warren has repeatedly refused to enforce laws passed by the legislature cracking down on child sex change surgeries and abortion restrictions.

“We are suspending Soros-backed 13th circuit state attorney Andrew Warren for neglecting his duties as he pledges not to uphold the laws of the state,” DeSantis’ office said in a statement. The 13th circuit falls over Florida’s Hillsborough County.

And, in an attempt to distance the move from partisan politics:

“This isn’t about abortion or any one thing, it’s about having accountability to our system of law and order to prosecute crime. There has been a pattern developing in Hillsborough County where one person picks and chooses which laws he wishes to enforce,” [DeSantis’] office stated.

Warren responded harshly, suggesting that DeSantis’ maneuver was an “illegal overreach”.
