The Florida Commission On Ethics confirmed it found probable cause in a complaint filed against Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony. REDBROWARD broke the news about the private hearing held last Friday. In a press release, the Commission stated:
“The Commission rejected the recommendation of its Advocate and found probable cause to believe Broward County Sheriff GREG TONY misused his public position 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.”

Once again, the Florida Commission on Ethics found probable cause in a case involving Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony, according to multiple sources. Last week’s hearing ended with an 8-1 vote in favor of probable cause. The Commission will reportedly recommend the removal of Sheriff Tony. One source said Tony did not attend the hearing.
In September, 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.
Will Governor Ron DeSantis visit Broward in January to address this matter?
