Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended a George Soros-backed progressive prosecutor Thursday for declining to enforce several state laws — including the Sunshine State’s 15-week abortion ban. .

DeSantis said Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren — whose jurisdiction includes the city of Tampa — would be removed from his post immediately and DeSantis would seek his dismissal.

During a news conference, the governor insisted Warren had “publicly put himself above the law” while frustrating local law enforcement and citizens with a soft-on-crime approach.

DeSantis — considered by many to be a potential 2024 GOP presidential contender — accused Warren of directing his office to let serious offenses slide and promising to refuse to enforce the abortion ban or any potential state laws on restricting gender-affirming care for minors. 

“We are not going to allow the pathogen that’s been around the country of ignoring the law, we are not going to allow that to get a foothold here in the state of Florida,” the governor said. “We are going to make sure our laws are enforced and no individual prosecutor puts himself above the law.”

Susan Lopez will step in as the new state attorney of the 13th Judicial Circuit, DeSantis said.
