Woke Prosecutor Removed by DeSantis Claims He’s ‘Going to Continue’ To ‘Serve’

The Soros-backed prosecutor removed from office this week by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has claimed that he is “going to continue” to serve in his position “to keep our neighborhoods safe,” asserting that the governor’s actions were “unconstitutional.”

In a major announcement this week, DeSantis said that he was removing State Attorney Andrew Warren of the 13th Judicial Circuit from office because he was not enforcing the law. The Florida governor had law enforcement remove Warren from his office to ensure that “no files, papers, documents, notes, records, computers, or removable storage media” were taken from the office.

Warren discussed DeSantis’ actions in an interview on Friday, where he was asked about what has changed in Florida that led to the governor utilizing more of his constitutional authority to govern.

“What’s changed is that the governor has changed,” Warren said.

“You know, policy differences aside, we’ve had governors who have respected the rule of law, and now we have one who clearly doesn’t,” the former state attorney claimed without evidence. “I mean, he is stepping on the rights of the voters of Hillsborough County.”

“This is blatantly unconstitutional in violation of Florida Statute,” Warren argued, despite evidence to the contrary. “He doesn’t have the authority to suspend me just because he wants to, especially when he’s focused on things that I haven’t even done yet. The bottom line is that people elected me to serve in this position, and I’m going to continue doing it to keep our neighborhoods safe.”

In his executive order removing Warren from office, DeSantis explained where exactly in Florida’s constitution a governor is given the power to be able to remove a state attorney from office.

In an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson this week, the Florida governor discussed his decision to remove the state attorney — pointing out that prosecutors across the country who are backed by Democrat megadonor George Soros, such as Warren, were doing significant damage to the cities and towns they are supposed to be serving.

“Here’s what Soros is doing. It’s actually smart on his part, they can’t get these things enacted in a legislature where you’re just gonna let criminals run [amok],” DeSantis explained. “So what they do, he will get involved in these Democrat primaries and a Democrat area, he’ll flush a million dollars to get the radical to win the primary then they usually win the general because of the party affiliation difference in the jurisdiction.”

“So, then you get them in there and what they do is they want to change the criminal justice system through non-enforcement,” he added. “So it’s a total end run around our constitutional system. The results obviously have been destructive around the country. But it also really undermines the idea that ours is supposed to be a government of laws, not a government of individual men.”
