After being elected twice, former Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren was removed from office in August by Gov. Ron DeSantis after signing pledges – one vowing not to prosecute abortion cases and another refusing prosecution against doctors performing gender reassignment surgery – and implementing internal policy not to prosecute low level misdemeanors unless public safety is at risk.
A ruling has not been issued in Warren’s challenge of the suspension. Regardless, his martyrdom could mean Warren’s political career is far from over. Beyond a ruling, watch whether Warren again runs for the office he was booted from, or seeks higher office.
