Justice demands that court reinstate Orlando prosecutor

The integrity of Florida’s government and the rights of its voters stand on a precipice, and Orlando State Attorney Monique Worrell’s fight for reinstatement after being suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis is a glaring illustration of that.

At the Florida Supreme Court last week, Worrell fought to reverse the governor’s August coup, while DeSantis’ attorney argued that the suspension is a “political question” beyond the court’s jurisdiction.

The court should take note of the Orlando Sentinel’s extensive research that leaves one of DeSantis’ central allegations against Worrell in ruins. The Sentinel showed that Worrell refused to prosecute some drug trafficking cases brought by the Osceola County sheriff for good reason: They were riddled with flaws.
