DeSantis Suspends Tampa Prosecutor Who Vowed Not to Criminalize Abortion

MIAMI — Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida suspended the top examiner in Tampa on Thursday

blaming him for ineptitude and disregard of obligation for promising not to arraign the individuals who look for or give early terminations.

In a frightening declaration, Mr. DeSantis, a Republican, suspended from office Andrew H. Warren

the chosen state lawyer of Hillsborough County. In June, Mr. Warren, a Democrat

was among 90 chosen examiners the nation over who promised not to indict the individuals who look for or give fetus removals

after the Supreme Court upset Roe v. Swim.

Florida forced a 15-week fetus removal boycott in April.

The choice quickly raised worries among Democrats, including Mr. Warren

who say that the lead representative has become progressively cumbersome.
