BREAKING: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has thrown woke Soros prosecutor Monique Worrell, State Attorney for the Ninth Judicial Circuit, out of office. This is the second Soros prosecutor he's removed from office.
No other governor has ever removed a Soros prosecutor.

DeSantis is getting rid of another Soros state attorney for refusing to prosecute criminals at double the rate of any other prosecutor in the state. State Attorney Monique H. Worrell, who serves Orange and Osceola Counties, is out.
Her refusal to do her job caused two police officers to be shot and for a woman to be murdered.

Ron DeSantis suspends Orlando prosecutor from office
By Christopher Cann  | Sun Sentinel
PUBLISHED: August 9, 2023 at 8:38 a.m. | UPDATED: August 9, 2023 at 9:01 a.m.

Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday announced the suspension of Orange-Osceola State Attorney Monique Worrell, a decision that has been looming over the prosecutor since February, when the governor condemned her office following a deadly shooting spree in Pine Hills.

At a press conference, DeSantis said Worrell and her office has been “clearly and constitutionally derelict” in her duty and said her policies justify her removal from office. Andrew A. Bain, a judge in Orange and Osceola counties, has been appointed by the governor.

DeSantis said Worrell had a pattern or practice to avoid minimum mandatory sentences for gun crimes, drug trafficking offenses and a pattern to allow juveniles to avoid serious charges or incarceration altogether. He also accused her office of limiting charges for child pornography. ...

Ron DeSantis
@GovRonDeSantis
I am appointing Judge Andrew Bain to step in and take over the duties of the State Attorney’s Office in the 9th Circuit.
The people of Central Florida deserve a State Attorney that will prosecute criminals and keep our communities safe.

Orange County Sheriff Blasts Soros-Backed State Attorney for Letting Suspected Shooter Run Free
Florida News, Opinion
By Eric Daugherty
Published Feb. 16, 2022, 10:15 a.m. ET | Updated Jan. 3, 2023

ORLANDO (FCV) – After suspected four-time drive-by shooter Emanuel Bullard was let free from jail on a measly $3,550 bond, Orange County Sheriff John Mina is “flabbergasted” as to why he was released.

“We are just flabbergasted and don’t understand why this violent person is back out on the streets so quickly,” Mina said.

“We just need our state attorneys’ offices and judges to help us out,” he said, throwing shade on Orange County’s Democrat State Attorney Monique H. Worrell.

After learning of the suspect being released on such a small bond, FCV found that Worrell is a George Soros-supported official.

Worrell was backed by over $1 million in George Soros funds via his Democracy PAC in the 2020 election. Soros has been known for donating massive sums of money into radical left-wing candidates in local races like State Attorneys. ...

DeSantis makes a very bold move.  We'll see what kind of backlash he'll receive.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended Ninth Judicial Circuit State Attorney Monique Worrell for "dereliction of duty" on crime via an executive order on Wednesday.

Didn’t the governor of Missouri recently remove Kim Gardner?

That will be telling

Will he irrationally lash out at detractors or will he cave? We’ll see.

DeSantis Suspends Soros-Backed State Attorney For ‘Neglecting’ Her Duty To Prosecute Violent Criminals
By: Shawn Fleetwood

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended a Democrat state attorney backed by leftist billionaire George Soros on Wednesday for allegedly failing to prosecute violent crime in her jurisdiction.

“It is my duty as Governor to ensure that the laws enacted by our duly elected Legislature are followed,” DeSantis said. “The people of Central Florida deserve to have a State Attorney who will seek justice in accordance with the law instead of allowing violent criminals to roam the streets and find new victims.”

According to the governor’s executive order, State Attorney Monique Worrell of the 9th Judicial Circuit, a Democrat whose jurisdiction includes Orlando, is facing suspension for allegedly enabling “practices or policies that have systematically permitted violent offenders, drug traffickers, serious juvenile offenders, and pedophiles to evade incarceration when otherwise warranted under Florida law.”

DeSantis highlighted Worrell’s soft-on-crime record, specifically noting her habit of “evading minimum mandatory sentences” for gun-related crimes. According to data cited in the order, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office allegedly referred 58 “non-homicide Robbery with a Firearm” cases to the 9th Circuit for prosecution in 2021 and 2022, but only one of those cases had “resulted in the minimum mandatory sentence of ten years” as of May 2023.

Similarly, the executive order noted, the same sheriff’s office referred 11 cases of “non-homicide Carjacking with a Firearm” for prosecution but only one has generated the minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years.  ...

Is the ability to do this within his power as governor?

You'd have to review the laws of each state to determine whether or not the governor has the power in each state.  In Florida, the governor appears to have that power under the Florida state constitution.  It is likely to be the case that in other states the governor does not have such a power.
