Florida Democrats Respond to Politically Motivated Suspension of State Attorney Monique Worrell

1 min read

Tallahassee, FL — Today, the Executive Office of the Governor announced the unfounded suspension of Monique Worrell, State Attorney for Florida’s Ninth Judicial Circuit. In response, the Florida Democratic Party has issued the following statement:“Ron DeSantis has gone too far,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “Monique Worrell is a devoted public servant — one who was elected overwhelmingly by her constituents. This political hit job threatens our democracy and undermines the will of the people.“Just days ago, Monique spoke out against Florida’s new education standards; standards that would teach our children that there was some kind of benefit to slavery. Ron’s extremist administration has consistently targeted the rights and freedoms of Black and brown Floridians, and the suspension of State Attorney Worrell — the only Black woman state attorney in Florida — is clearly racially and politically motivated.“Ron’s presidential campaign has been a disaster of epic proportions, but attacking law and order in service of his culture wars isn’t the solution to his problems. On behalf of her constituents, the Florida Democratic Party demands the immediate reinstatement of State Attorney Worrell.”
