Florida State Attorney Andrew Warren made a written pledge that he wouldn’t enforce state laws transgender child sex mutilation and abortion.
Gov. DeSantis suspended him. Now the Soros DA is complaining about the Orwellian thought police.
Former Florida State Attorney Andrew Warren who was suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis last week said he’s being punished for laws that are not even on the books yet.
This is Orwellian Thought Police, where I’m being punished for not enforcing laws that are not even on the books yet, Warren told MSNBC’s Katie Phang during a Saturday interview.
Warren wrote down his thoughts. That means they’re not thoughts anymore, they’re formal pledges by an official to disregard the law.
The Soros DA doesn’t actually seem to have read Orwell, which was about a lefty political machine terrorizing everyone, or understand that an official making a formal pledge to do something is not simply a stray thought.
But Warren doesn’t seem to be clear on how anything works.
The Florida state attorney suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis insisted Friday that he still has a job — but the Republican governor’s office said he can’t even get into his old office.
Andrew Warren, who served as Hillsborough County’s top prosecutor until DeSantis announced his ouster Thursday, insisted to CBS that he was still on the job.
“He does not have the authority to suspend me,” he told the network, adding that “the people elected me to serve in this position and I am going to continue doing it to keep our neighborhoods safe.”
Warren asserted that the move was “unconstitutional” and that he refused to recognize its legitimacy.
Those comments drew a Twitter rebuke from DeSantis spokesperson Christina Pushaw Friday, who said Warren was being “delusional.”
It’s okay. Warren identifies as still being on the job. As long as he thinks so, it’s still okay.
