Gov. DeSantis suspends state prosecutor; RAISE Grant; Wayne Clark; THRIVE! Breakfast; local sports
Florida prosecutor Andrew Warren is suing Gov. Ron DeSantis for removing him from office.
DeSantis said the decision was made after Warren pledged not to prosecute people for violating abortion restrictions or seeking gender-affirming care for minors.
Warren sued in U.S. District Court, claiming that the governor violated his First Amendment right to freedom of speech and that removing him from office overturned an election. He maintains that while he spoke in favor of abortion rights and gender-affirming medical care, he has not taken any action. Warren’s office has no cases pending.
Guest: Andrew Warren, suspended state attorney.
