Broward Clerk of Courts Brenda Forman is under criminal investigation

Prosecutors are investigating whether Broward Clerk of Courts Brenda Forman made false statements under oath, as well as “additional complaints,” the governor’s office confirmed Friday.

Gov. Ron DeSantis signed an order appointing the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office to handle “the investigation and prosecution of this case and all related matters.”

The inquiry will be the latest hurdle faced by Forman, who was elected in 2016 largely on the name and popularity of her predecessor and then-husband, Howard Forman.

The Broward State Attorney’s Office began a review when attorney Bill Gelin provided prosecutors with copies of sworn statements the clerk made against him late last year, accusing him of stalking her through the courthouse hallways and placing her in fear for her life.
