WJHG: Governor Scott Attacked by Challenger on Sheriff’s Arrest

Governor Scott Attacked by Challenger on Sheriff’s Arrest

Sheriff FinchLibertarian Gubernatorial candidate Adrian Wyllie has been critical of his opponent Governor Rick Scott before, but speaking from the campaign trail in Seminole County Thursday, he didn’t mince words.

Wyllie says Rick Scott’s actions are bordering on treason and must be held accountable, referring to Scott’s decision to remove and arrest Liberty County Sheriff Nicholas Finch.

The controversy started when Sheriff Finch refused to book a suspect who was arrested for carrying a firearm without a permit. Sheriff Finch told his deputies, “I believe in the Second Amendment, and we’re not going to charge him,” before releasing the suspect.

On Tuesday, the FDLE investigated the matter, and ultimately arrested Sheriff Finch for “official misconduct.” Governor Scott removed him from office and appointed FDLE agent Carl Causey as sheriff.

Wyllie believes this is politically motivated and it’s an example of abuse of power by Governor Scott and wants Scott to reinstate Finch immediately.
