Florida Commission On Ethics Finds Probable Cause Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony Misused Public Office

In a closed session last Friday, the Florida Commission on Ethics found probable cause to believe Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony misued his office when he provided false information to gain employment. According to a press release, the Commission overruled the opinion of its advocate. The matter stems from Tony failing to disclose previous legal matters when applying for a job with the Coral Springs Police Department, applying for a driver license and forms filed with FDLE while he was Sheriff.

“The Commission rejected the recommendation of its Advocate and found probable cause to believe Broward County Sheriff GREGORY TONY misused his public position when he provided false information or did not disclose information during the hiring process for his employment with the Coral Springs Police Department; when he provided false information or did not disclose information during the appointment process for his service as Broward County Sheriff; when completing a notarized Form 68 submitted to FDLE while serving as Broward County Sheriff; and when applying to renew his driver’s license while serving as a law enforcement officer.”

    Well, I guess, “so what?”. I can’t imagine DeathSantis doing anything. Tony is DeathSantis’ guy. And now that’s he’s been elected. “What, me worry.”

      Naw! DeSantis? Why would Tony be protected by a white supremacist, ultra-MAGA, semi-fascist, domestic terrorist (am I missing as pejorative?) like DeSantis? Naw!

      Surely you jest. 🙄

    “The Commission rejected the recommendation of its Advocate…” That doesn’t happen often. This means that the Commissioners are doing their jobs despite the pressure put on them by the Advocate. Good for them!

    Too bad the opposite happens with the Miami-Dade County Commission on Ethics & Public Trust, where the Commissioners don’t think for themselves, either out of ignorance or pure laziness. I suspect a little of both.

    He was DeSantis’ appointee and obviously he wasn’t properly vetted and deserves what he gets. But, if anyone thinks politics isn’t also playing a real role here, I have a bridge I’d like to sell them in Brooklyn too.
