Gov. Ron DeSantis is scheduled to speak at Broward County's public safety complex Friday afternoon. A news release says he'll make a statement on "holding government officials accountable." His spokesman wouldn't specify who'd be held accountable.
The Miami Herald and South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported recently that Sheriff Scott Israel has told his staff he expects to be removed. Following the Feb. 14 shooting that left 17 dead, then-candidate DeSantis told supporters he'd suspend Israel but retreated in later appearances.
Under Florida law, the governor can suspend elected officials for criminal activity, misfeasance, incompetence or neglect of duty.
