If Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony was looking for support from Gov. Ron DeSantis after the sheriff came under fire for killing a man with his father’s revolver at his home in Philadelphia when he was 14, he didn’t exactly get it Monday.
Instead, the governor, when questioned about the news at a press conference in Tallahassee Monday, distanced himself from his own appointee and claimed that he “didn’t even know him.”
…DeSantis said the shooting did not come up in a background check, because he was exonerated in juvenile court.
