Gov. Ron DeSantis to Florida Senate: Don’t ‘thumb nose’ at Parkland families by reinstating Scott Israel

Gov. Ron DeSantis used his State of the State address to try to tip the scales against former Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.

Any senator who would vote to reinstate Israel would “thumb his nose” at the families who lost loved ones in the Parkland school shooting, he told state legislators Tuesday.

DeSantis suspended Israel in January and replaced him with Greg Tony, a former Coral Springs police officer who has a background in active-shooter training.

The Florida Senate is charged with deciding whether Israel should be removed from office or reinstated.
