Another state attorney in Florida, who is backed by Democrat megadonor George Soros, appears to be on the verge of being removed from office by Governor Ron DeSantis.
Monique H. Worrell, the state attorney for Florida’s 9th Judicial Circuit, said at the Marion County NAACP Freedom Fund late last week that she anticipates that DeSantis is going to remove her from office as soon as this week.
DeSantis slammed Worrell earlier this year for failing to keep Keith Moses, 19, off the streets. Moses is accused of shooting five people, murdering three, including 9-year-old T’yonna Major, 38-year-old Nathacha Augustin and 24-year-old reporter Dylan Lyons of Spectrum News 13.
Moses had been arrested multiple times for felonious crimes when he was a minor, most of which happened before Worrell was sworn into office at the start of 2021.
However, one arrest did happen under Worrell when Moses was arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession, according to WESH 2. Ultimately Moses was not prosecuted due to the amount of the substance that was found which would be the end of the story — except a gun was found.
“I cannot believe they let this guy – you have to hold people accountable,” DeSantis said. “This idea – and, I know the district attorney, state attorney in Orlando thinks that you don’t prosecute people and that’s the way that you somehow have better communities – that does not work.”
“And you have these people when they’ve had multiple arrests, multiple times where they could be held accountable, and you keep cycling them out into the community, you are increasing the chances that something bad will happen,” DeSantis added.
DeSantis is the only governor in the U.S. who has ever removed a Soros-backed prosecutor from power.
DeSantis sent the police to remove woke State Attorney Andrew Warren of the 13th Judicial Circuit from office this week back in early August.
“State Attorneys have a duty to prosecute crimes as defined in Florida law, not to pick and choose which laws to enforce based on his personal agenda,” DeSantis said in a statement. “It is my duty to hold Florida’s elected officials to the highest standards for the people of Florida. I have the utmost trust that Judge Susan Lopez will lead the office through this transition and faithfully uphold the rule of law.”
In the Executive Order suspending Warren from office, DeSantis ordered, “As of the signing of this Executive Order, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, assisted by other law enforcement agencies as necessary, is requested to: (i) assist in the immediate transition of Andrew Warren from the Office of the State Attorney for the 13th Judicial Circuit of Florida, with access only to retrieve his personal belongings; and (ii) ensure that no files, papers, documents, notes, records, computers, or removable storage media are removed from the Office of the State Attorney for the 13th Judicial Circuit of Florida by Andrew Warren or any of his staff.”
