Ethics Commission Finds Probable Cause (Again) In Broward Sheriff Tony Case

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?
