HUGE: Ron DeSantis to Remove Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel

Published

on

According to a report by The Miami New TimesBroward County Sheriff Scott Israel will be removed from his post by Gov. Ron DeSantis, who was sworn in Tuesday.

“Broward Sheriff Scott Israel has informed numerous high-ranking BSO members that he expects to be removed from his position and will fight to get his job back, according to three sources close to the agency,” the paper said.

Israel has been under fire for his office’s response – or lack thereof – to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting which killed 17 on Valentine’s Day. Several of his deputies failed to enter the school while shots rang out inside, a fact which Israel lied about in a letter for former Governor Rick Scott. The Sheriff also failed to secure a perimeter around the school as requested by fire and rescue workers, while the shooter was still active. He concealed this fact in the official dispatch log.

“Israel’s removal would be only the beginning, says Deputy Jeff Bell, the BSO union chief and member of DeSantis’ transition team,” according to the paper. “The move ‘would remove an incompetent sheriff,’ Bell says. ‘But if you’re looking to fix the agency and put it on the right track, it does nothing to do that.'”

In April, Israel’s deputies issued a “no confidence” vote against him, which he dismissed as “inconsequential” and blamed on salary concerns.

The report noted that Israel plans to fight his dismissal.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
