Suspended Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren took the stand Tuesday as a federal court evaluates whether Gov. Ron DeSantis had the right to suspend him after the Democrat signed a pledge against prosecuting abortion cases.
Warren accused DeSantis of violating his free speech rights and overturning the will of voters.
“We’re not just fighting for the job I was elected to do,” Warren told reporters. “We’re fighting for the rights of voters across Florida to have the elected officials of their choice, we’re fighting for free speech, the integrity of our elections, and for the very values of our democracy.”
