The state attorney Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended Thursday morning put ideology over the rule of law, the Florida Republican told Acesparks.

DeSantis suspended Andrew Warren after the state attorney pledged not to charge abortion providers or their doctors for illegally terminating pregnancies. Warren made the vow in June, days before a state law banning abortion after 15 weeks was set to take effect.

“We had the individual here from Hillsborough County say and sign letters that there are certain laws he just won’t enforce and won’t prosecute,” DeSantis told Acesparks in an exclusive interview after a press conference where he announced the suspension. “States attorneys that put their ideology over the rule of law are not satisfying their oath of office.”

DeSantis said during the press conference that Warren repeatedly refused to enforce laws the legislature ssed cracking down on child sex change surgeries and abortion restrictions.

Warren tweeted last month: “The 15-week ban is unconstitutional on its face. Tallahassee knew it when it passed the bill hoping judges would ignore the privacy right in the FL Constitution.”

“I put my hand on the Bible and swore to defend the US & Florida Constitutions,” Warren continued. “Florida’s Constitution has a privacy right that clearly covers abortion. While Tallahassee tries to circumvent the law, I will uphold the law and protect our freedom.”

Florida Democrats, including gubernatorial candidate and Commissioner of Agriculture Nikki Fried denounced the decision, calling DeSantis a “wannabe dictator.”

“This is outrageous and dangerous,” Fried tweeted shortly after the announcement.

Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren chose ideology over the rule of law, according to Florida Gov.  Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis told Acesparks: “I do think that some of these prosecutors that have a very militant agenda in terms of ideology have been able to get away with a lot in other states. … We’ve had prosecutors around this country that think they can pick and choose which laws to enforce.”

Warren “may have thought, because they got away with it in Los Angeles, they got away with it in Baltimore, that he could do this stuff in Florida,” DeSantis added. “Not on my watch… We’re going to take action, decisive action, to protect the people of the state.”

Warren’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
