Governor Rick Scott Suspends Sylvia Poitier


One day after she was charged with five misdemeanors, Deerfield Commissioner Sylvia Poitier (Democrat) has been suspended by Governor Rick Scott. Did Sylvia apologize? Hang her head in shame? Nope.

“‘How could I be the only person in the world suspended on a misdemeanor?’ Poitier asked.”

Only in Broward.

  1. You won’t be the only one for long, Sylvia. Just wait a while, I’m sure there will be others to join you. And why is this only a ‘misdemeanor’? Maybe that’s the real question here.
