A Florida Senate special master has recommended the former sheriff who was suspended for his department’s bungled response to the Parkland high school massacre should be reinstated, according to a new report.

In a report released Wednesday, special master Dudley Goodlette determined that Gov. Ron DeSantis failed to prove the charges in his suspension order against former Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Florida official says suspended Parkland sheriff should return to duty

It is not done yet by far. The Florida Senate will meet next moth to decide if they allow Israel to go back to wear the uniform and make a bigger mess. You can count with the Broward Democrat Machine to throw support behind Israel, but I do not know if the rest Democrats in the State will be so confident to do so. Governor DeSantis has good ratings among Floridians and the crap that BSO pulled with the school Board has not been forgotten yet.

I am sure the hearings will be live streamed and should be fun to watch.

    1. “Special master” is (at least usually, the way I understand the term) a person appointed by a court to examine a specific matter and issue an expert opinion about it. Google it; Wikipedia has an article (of course) as do other references.
      In this case, it sounds like he issued a “recommendation” — which implies that the Governor is free to ignore it. Obviously that’s what he should do.

  1. RME

    Might as well rename that county to Hazzard County, with its “master” Boss Hogg and sheriff Roscoe Israel.

    Yeesh.

  2. I’m tempted to go down there and convince him to run for governor. He’s got the name recognition and Democrat sympathies, he should strike while the iron is hot.
