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.
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.
