TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (WSVN) – The Florida Senate has voted to uphold Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ suspension of Scott Israel as Broward County’s sheriff.
State senators upheld his suspension in a 25 to 15 vote, Wednesday.
DeSantis suspended Israel when he took office in January 2019 due to his handling of the Parkland shooting. He announced current Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony, the county’s first black sheriff, as his replacement.
Israel said he plans to seek reelection as the county’s sheriff in 2020.
