Florida Senate Democratic Leader Asks Governor to Shed Light on Any Future Suspensions

Florida Senate Democratic Leader Asks Governor to Shed Light on Any Future Suspensions

Tallahassee —

Last Wednesday, Governor DeSantis suspended duly-elected State Attorney Monique Worrell of the 9th Judicial Circuit.

After the publicly announced suspension, just one year after the suspension of another State Attorney, Senate Democratic Leader Lauren Book (D-Davie) sent a letter to Governor DeSantis, asking for more clarity for the public on these actions. Leader Book asked the Governor what other State Attorneys may be facing suspension and for the Governor to shed light on the metrics used to take these extreme measures.

Florida Senate Rule 12.16 states that “Senators should refrain from speaking publicly on the merits or substance of any suspension order prior to the vote.” 

The actions taken by the Governor are extraordinary, and while Senators will honor Florida Senate rules on refraining from comment on the merits or substance of the Governor’s action (as the matter should come before the upper chamber), we welcome the opportunity to participate in the proceedings, post-haste.

You can find Leader Book’s letter at the link here, sent to Governor DeSantis and his Acting Chief of Staff on Wednesday, August 9th.
