    I am against elected sheriffs, the best politician gets elected or the favored party in that county, not the best law enforcement leader.

    There are counties in fla with sheriiffs with no prior law enforcement experience.

    A guy I was in the Army with was elected sheriff in Pennsylvania somewhere. He had no law enforcement experience.

    Electing sheriffs is a long standing tradition in the US. If not elected (and sometimes you don't get the best available to be sure) how would you choose who should be a sheriff? Baltimore used to have city chief of police appointed by the governor. That is no longer the case.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Florida must have some screwed up laws if the Governor can suspend an elected official.

    I would imagine the law has some strict requirements for the governor to fire an elected official.
