(FOX NEWS) – The former top cop of the largest sheriff’s office in Florida — who was booted from power earlier this year in the response to his handling of two mass shootings — is running for his old job.
Former Sheriff Scott Israel filed paperwork Monday stating his intention to run in the August 2020 Democratic primary.
Israel was suspended by in January by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over “repeated failures, incompetence, and neglect of duty,” in relation to the deadly Parkland, Florida, school shooting in 2018 and the Fort Lauderdale International Airport shooting in 2017.
“I want to get back to working with the incredible men and women of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office,” he told CBS12 on Monday. “I want to get back to my communities.”
Israel is fighting the suspension before the Florida Senate and had previously committed to running for the seat regardless of whether he was reinstated. A Senate special master is reviewing this case and could Rule on Israel’s fate by the fall, according to CBS12.
