After being replaced, former Ninth Judicial Circuit state attorney Monique Worrell vowed not to be bullied by Gov. Ron DeSantis or used as a tool but stopped short of announcing a lawsuit.
“I am the duly elected state attorney for the Ninth Judicial Circuit, and nothing done by a weak dictator can change that,” she said. “This is an outrage.”
DeSantis appointed Andrew Bain as the new state attorney on Aug. 9. The Ninth Judicial Circuit encompasses Orange and Osceola counties.
