Gov. Ron DeSantis has officially removed and suspended Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.
DeSantis, sworn in as governor Tuesday, visited the Broward Sheriff's Office headquarters in Fort Lauderdale Friday afternoon to put weeks of rumors about Israel's fate to rest.
"I have no interest in dancing on Scott Israel's political grave," DeSantis told a cheering crowd. "Just suffice it to say that the massacre might never have happened if Broward had better leadership in the sheriff's department."
