Liberal District Attorneys, prosecutors, and judges have been unleashing hell on the United States by promoting criminals and refusing to punish them for their actions. These George Soros’ backed pawns have refused to step back their “crime reform” policies no matter how much it hurts the public. Now Ron DeSantis has taken unprecedented action to stop one of them from hurting Florida anymore.
According to the Tampa Bay Times,
Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday removed Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren from office for what he said was Warren’s disregard for his duty to enforce state laws, including a pledge not to prosecute people receiving an abortion or their doctors performing them.
At a news conference flanked by police from around Tampa Bay, DeSantis said Warren had “put himself publicly above the law” by signing letters saying he would not enforce laws prohibiting gender-affirming care for minors or laws limiting abortion.
Under a clause in the state Constitution, DeSantis suspended Warren, effectively firing him.
“Our government is a government of laws, not a government of men,” DeSantis said.
Here is DeSantis’s announcement.
The suspension, which stunned observers, removed one of the state’s most outspoken prosecutors. Warren, a Democrat, has been a frequent critic of DeSantis, a Republican. He called the 2021 “anti-riot” legislation that DeSantis championed a misguided “solution in search of a problem.” He’s also questioned the need for an election security force that DeSantis has helped create.
On Thursday morning, Warren was escorted out of his office. Later, at an afternoon news conference in the Shumaker law firm’s downtown Tampa office, Warren struck a defiant tone.
“I’m still the duly elected state attorney for Hillsborough County,” he said. Asked if he thinks this was his last act as a public official, he said, simply, “no.”
Warren said he still had not seen the governor’s order and did not say whether he would challenge the action.
He called the governor’s criticisms “pure conjecture and lies,” and alluded to DeSantis having presidential ambitions.
“The governor is trying to overthrow the results of a fair and free election, two of them,” he said. “People need to understand, this isn’t the governor trying to suspend one elected official. This is the governor trying to overthrow democracy here in Hillsborough County.”
He insisted he was “still the duly elected state attorney for Hillsborough County.”
The move by Governor DeSantis is certain to send waves around the nation as many other states grapple with similar, Soros-backed crime reformers. In Los Angeles, they are currently working to recall a similar figure in DA Gascon and NYC Mayor Eric Adams pointed to other liberal reformers in his own city that have caused crime to explode. Do you think more states will take direct action like DeSantis to remove these thorns in their sides?
