FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 4, 2022

CONTACT: Claire VanSusteren, (352) 281-9056


STATEMENT from Florida Senate Democratic Leader Lauren Book on Governor DeSantis' Removal of Elected Democratic State Attorney:

Broward County, FL —

“With his removal of a duly elected Democratic State Attorney who refused to enforce Florida’s extreme abortion ban, Ron DeSantis is behaving more like a dictator than 'America’s Governor.' Ron DeSantis continues to make it shamefully clear that he will always put partisan politics over the democratic will of the people.”
